Blindspot Will Return For Season 4 on NBC


Perhaps you know that Blindspot returns to NBC on January 12, 2018, at 8/7c. And you undoubtedly look forward to the next season of the show. But whether or not NBC is going to renew Blindspot for Season 4? The current season premiere showcased a significant drop in the viewing audience by attracting about 42% fewer viewers compared to its predecessor. In spite of this, the broadcaster announced May 10 that Blindspot had been renewed for another season.

We were sure in such a decision by NBC. Below is our forecast.

The third season premiere has garnered 4.13 million viewers with a 0.7/3 rating/share (P18-49). However, this drop wasn't a surprise, given the fact that the show was shifted to Friday night. Unfortunately, all the subsequent episodes have drawn less than four million viewers. This downtrend looks unfavorable for Blindspot. Nonetheless, everything might change in the second half of Season 3. But usually, if the television ratings started to drop down, they may decrease a lot by the end of the season. However, we hope that the figures will remain above the mark of 3.5 million viewers per episode. In that case, we evaluate the odds of Blindspot to return for Season 4 as pretty favorable.

As for reception for Season 3, it was mostly average. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the current season has a score of 3.6/5 and a 68% approval rating. An overall score of the show remains high, 7.5/10 > 51,500 votes, according to IMDb. And yet, we regard this indicator quite strong. Summing up, despite the downtrend in the viewership, we believe that Blindspot has a good chance for a next installment.

What Is Blindspot About?

If you have not watched this show yet, here is a brief overview below.

The story centers on Jane Doe, a young woman found naked inside a travel bag in Times Square. Her past is unclear. Besides, Jane can't remember anything regarding the events happened to her. The curious fact is that the mysterious tattoos cover her body. This weird map on her body consists clues to the various crimes that the FBI will have to solve.

Despite her amnesia, Jane occasionally has flashbacks that may allow reconstructing the circumstances of this unusual case. The situation is complicated by the fact that among the tattoos there is a name of Kurt Weller, an FBI agent. It turns out later that Jane is Kurt's missing childhood friend who vanished many years ago. Kurt thereby is forced to lead the investigation in an attempt to figure out what happened to Jane in fact.

About The Likely Release Date For Season 4

As for the release date, we will likely have to wait until fall. Taking into account the fact that all the previous seasons started off in September and October, we think that Blindspot might return for Season 4 in October 2018. However, in any case, we are waiting for the official announcement from NBC. We will update this page as soon as getting some additional details on the subject. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
