Just a few hours ago, NBC announced that Blindspot is returning for Season 5, yet it would be the last season of the series. The upcoming round of the crime drama is promising to be epic since we will finally be able to learn the truth about Jane Doe and what really happened to her. No specific release date for Season 5 has been announced so far. Nevertheless, those of you who are among the devoted fans of the series are aware of that the premiere is likely slated for this fall.
This season, Blindspot experienced a huge drop in the viewing audience (-28.66%) and thereby the decision on renewal was quite doubtful. However, as we expected, NBC has provided a chance for Blindspot to prove its place in the network's lineup for the last time.
First, we want to emphasize that the odds were low. If we take a look at the reviews that the viewers wrote about the current season, they look mixed and even ambivalent. On Rotten Tomatoes, Blindspot Season 4 holds a score of 3 out of 5 and a 51% approval rating from the viewers. On Metacritic, in turn, the picture seems to be above average, due to a score of 6.3/10. If we compare these statistics with those of Season 2, for instance, the numbers don't play in favor of the current round of the show. Yet, this was not a reason to cancel Blindspot. The statistics were still admissible.
Perhaps you know that Blindspot has garnered over ten million viewers during its premiere (10.61) with a 3.1/10 key demo/share among adults (P18-49), and has thereby become one of the top-rated series on TV. Yet if we take a look at the television ratings for the current round of Blindspot, it becomes clear that the viewership has decreased three times. The current season premiere has garnered less than three million viewers (2.95) with a 0.5 demo rating (P18-49). Although the numbers look a bit low, the viewership of Blindspot still remains steady. Many shows on cable might envy such results, especially, given that Blindspot is currently in its fourth installment.
Summing up, the statistics of Blindspot looked a bit weak. As a result, it was clear to us that there are two possible scenarios in the mind of the NBC heads. In the best case scenario, Blindspot was coming back for its last season (as it really happened). At the worst, we expected the cancellation. Fortunately, NBC has given a chance for Blindspot for another round. So guys, we are on the eve of an epic finale.
Blindspot Season 5 Release Date
Now we know that despite a bit unfavorable statistics, Blindspot will return for Season 5 on NBC. Therefore, we should expect the premiere in September-October 2019, given the current schedule of the show.
However, you should take into account that all the data above is nothing but our forecast. We are tracking down all the official news from NBC. As soon as the network reveal any details about Blindspot Season 5, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
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.
