‘The Blacklist: Redemption’: Meet the Cast

'The Blacklist: Redemption' Cast

Tonight is the premiere of a new NBC spin-off series: The Blacklist: Redemption. The show has been described as an American crime thriller, and follows former criminals (played by Tom Keen, Famke Janssen, and Edi Gathegi) as they work as spies to make up for past misdeeds. The show's backdoor pilot aired in the form of an episode of The Blacklist, and was developed as a spin-off by The Blacklist creator Jon Bokenkamp and showrunner John Eisendrath in Mach 2016. In an interview with Yahoo, the creators described the series as "big" and "crazy." Eisendrath said, "This has a real flash and flair and musical sensibility and scope...My hope and desire is that [the audience] really hooks into Tom and Scottie’s very peculiar, curious, twisted, uncertain relationship and go on the journey to find out what that’s going to look like.” The creators have made one thing clear: Redemption is a very different drama from The Blacklist. For one thing, Redemption begins with Tom already knowing that Scottie is his mother. Click through our gallery to meet the cast of the new show. (NBC)
