Blindspot renewed for season 2
NBC has renewed Blindspot for a second season, EW has learned.
The series stars Jaimie Alexander as a Jane Doe who is dosed with an experimental memory loss drug and left naked in a bag in Times Square. Jane now helps the FBI decrypt the intricate tattoos that make up one big treasure map to solving her identity and, potentially, thwarting some bad guys along the way.
“We are over the moon with the success of Blindspot, and want to thank our producers and amazing cast for creating one of the most riveting shows on television. Jaimie and Sullivan [Stapleton] have done an amazing job of ratcheting up the tension each week in trying to unravel the mystery of Jane’s tattoos,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. “We literally can’t wait to see what the second season will bring.”
