Although the beloved American crime show drama Blindspot is on its hiatus, it seems like there is a huge possibility for a third season. The last episode showed a cliffhanger, and fans must wait until January 4, 2017 on what will happen next. In addition to that, Blindspot season 3 does not look far behind.
A little introduction…
Blindspot centers on a young tattooed woman who woke up in Times Square with no memory of who she was. The woman, portrayed by Jaimie Alexander, was then held in the custody of FBI. The members of the FBI then began to utilize her tattoos as clues that point out to a complicated conspiracy. The first season, which aired on September last year, garnered 10.6 million viewers. With a high viewership rating, the show had added nine more episodes, bringing the first season to a total of 23 episodes.
With decently high ratings and interesting plot twists, the second season premiered on September 14, 2016. However, the numbers slowly dwindled until viewership became 5.6 million on the third week. However, if the ratings manage to stay at least on that level, a Blindspot season 3 may be on the way.
What’s next for Blindspot?
According to TV Series Finale, the creator of Blindspot talked about what will happen to the show in the future. In the interview, creator Martin Gero said that the latest episode meant a lot to them because it was a twisting moment. Gero said, “Our fall finale is always a big deal for us. It means a turning point in the season and a shift in the storytelling, so we had a lot of big bangs and we tried to cram them all in there and not make it feel overly full, but we had a lot of ground to cover.”
He also added, “A lot of the question you’ve asked — like, why the tattoos, what’s Shepherd’s endgame — a lot of the big mythology questions are going to be answered in these next 13 episodes. And we have a twist ending that I hope… well, I don’t want to give a lot away. I think there’s a lot of fun to be had, even if you’re a casual viewer of Blindspot. This next half of the season is more explosive and more fun, and we’re able to turn more cards than we ever have before.”
