Will 'The Blacklist: Redemption' Return For Season 2? The Cast Is Keeping Busy With Other Projects
I've really enjoyed watching The Blacklist: Redemption, despite not being caught up on its parent show The Blacklist. But the spinoff of the NBC hit show definitely has its own charm — and will air its season finale on Thursday night. But will The Blacklist: Redemption return for Season 2? There is no word yet on whether the series has been renewed or canceled by NBC, but don't worry — you can catch the talented cast in other upcoming roles as you await news of the show's fate.
The show's eight-episode first season began in February, so if NBC decides to renew The Blacklist: Redemption, Season 2 could be premiere next spring. On The Blacklist, Tom Keen (played by Ryan Eggold) is introduced as Elizabeth's husband, who wound up having a mysterious past of his own. The Blacklist: Redemption follows Tom as he joins his biological mother Scottie Hargrave (Famke Janssen) at her security firm as a covert operative. The result has been a cool and thrilling series that expands on the world of The Blacklist and Tom's character in engaging ways.
But as fans await the news of The Blacklist: Redemption's potential return, you can check out the cast some of their upcoming projects.
The actor who has plays Tom Keene can be seen in the film Lovesong, which was released in February. He appears in the movie opposite Jena Malone, Brooklyn Decker, Amy Seimetz, and Rosanna Arquette. Lovesong is about two women whose friendship intensifies during a road trip.
The actor can next be seen in the upcoming films This Is Your Death, Status Update, and A Little Something For Your Birthday, a coming-of-age comedy which stars Sharon Stone, Tony Goldwyn, and Ellen Burstyn. According to The Hollywood Reporter, A Little Something For Your Birthday will follow Stone as woman who is trying to separate herself from her overbearing mother (played by Burstyn).
On The Blacklist: Redemption, Gathegi plays Matias Solomon. On the big screen, he stars opposite Maria Bello, Annaleigh Tipton, and Jeremy Irons in the film Monumental, according to IMDb, an action comedy about a group of misfits on the run from the FBI.
The actor recently appeared on the big screen in the comedy film Office Christmas Party and will have a small role in the upcoming film Once Upon A Time in Venice, according to his IMDb profile. Once Upon A Time in Venice stars Bruce Willis, Jason Momoa, and Janssen in this action film about a Los Angeles Police detective out to find the gang that stole his dog.
The actor who plays Howard Hargrave has also appeared in the TV series Secrets and Lies as John Warner and Patriot as Tom Tavener.
The actor who plays Kat Carlson in the series will next be seen in the movie Good Bones, which is a coming-of-age love story set in the Hamptons real estate world, and Landing Up, a drama about a woman whose past threatens her new-found love, according to IMDb.
While I hope The Blacklist: Redemption gets renewed, there will be many opportunities to follow the cast in other roles if the show doesn't return.
