HOLLYWOOD (NBC) – “The Blacklist” offers up its winter finale tonight.
Not only is it likely to have a cliffhanger to keep fans in suspense until Spring, the episode will also help launch the spinoff series that follows right after, “The Blacklist: Redemption”.
In the new show Tom Keen, played by Ryan Eggold, casts his lot with a band of mercenaries.
Leading the group is the woman Red Reddington says is Keen’s long-lost biological mom, played by Famke Janssen.
It adds to the dynamic of a group of ex-criminals working outside government bounds to redeem their bad reputations.
“This show, we really want to move. Have missions that take you on a ride,” Eggold says.
The series also promises a different tone.
“It’s lighter. It’s more fun. It’s more of an espionage thriller type of show,” Janssen says.
“The Blacklist: Redemption” starts at 9 p.m.
