NBC Unleashes First ‘Blacklist: Redemption’ Trailer

‘The Blacklist: Redemption’ team on why Tom Keen is heading to the spin-off

The Blacklist spin-off is upon us!

NBC has released the first full-length trailer for The Blacklist: Redemption, which hints at why Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) is leaving the flagship behind.

The Blacklist: Redemption finds the world’s most elusive criminals from Red’s (James Spader) infamous list coming together to form an elite mercenary team as they try to regain their self-worth after a lifetime of inflicting damage on the world. Blacklist undercover operative Tom Keen joins the team’s brilliant and cunning chief, Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen) — who is apparently his mother while Terry O’Quinn is his father! — as well as lethal assassin and Tom nemesis Matias Solomon (Edi Gathegi), among others.

The Blacklist: Redemption will debut Thursday, Feb. 23 and air for eight weeks in the flagship’s timeslot at 10 p.m. ET before The Blacklist returns on Thursday, April 20 with a two-hour episode.
