Throughout the course of a season, whether a series may be in its first or third season, there are some fans who try to pay close attention to a show’s ratings, so that they could try to predict whether or not a show will be renewed or not. Regardless of whether one does closely follow the ratings or not, fans of television shows await renewal or cancellation news with regards to their favorite shows with bated breath. However, when it comes to the fate of the NBC freshman show “Blindspot,” fans of the show need not worry anymore as the show riddled with puzzles will be back to see another season, as it has just been renewed for a second season. Also, several new interesting clues have come to light which may help fans and viewers solve some of the puzzles and mysteries that the show has in store for its viewers. WARNING: This article may contain spoilers regarding the freshman run of NBC’s “Blindspot.” Read on only to learn more.
Typically, fans and viewers have to wait until the season is halfway through or almost finished in order to learn and to predict whether a television show will be renewed or not, and most of the time, fans can either be ecstatic or thoroughly disappointed when they finally learn which shows will get canned or not.
However, there are rare instances in which television shows get a very early renewal, which allow fans and viewers to breathe a collective sigh of relief, and which will allow fans to speculate and to create more theories about what will be happening next in the series. This time, however, one can be sure that there will a lot of speculating and theorizing that will be happening, as NBC’s mystery and puzzle riddled show, “Blindspot,” which is currently in its freshman run, according to TV Line, has just been renewed.
This marks the first early renewal of the current fall television season.
According to the report, the series has an average of 8.7 million viewers every week and is doing well against the other shows in its time slot, which shows that NBC has a clear winner for Monday nights when it comes to the rating game.
Now that a second season is safely in the bag, fans and puzzle enthusiasts will be eager, more than ever, to continue solving every clue that the show has to offer, which , apparently is everywhere, from the clues given within the show, to the superficial and easily overlooked things, such as the title of each episode of the series.
According to an interview that show creator Martin Gero had with Variety last month, the title of every episode, beginning from the pilot, which is actually entitled “Woe Has Joined,” are anagrams, which when put together, will form one sentence with one message.
Working on this theory, fans and puzzle enthusiasts can try going through all of the episode titles in order to see what clues it might hold, and as to what message the creators are trying to give us for this season.
Aside from this, Entertainment Weekly’s Spoiler Room segment recently discovered some more facts about FBI Special Agent Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) father. He just might have something to do with young Taylor Shaw’s (Jaimie Alexander) disappearance twenty five years ago.
According to Gero, it is still unsure as to whether he was involved in Taylor’s kidnapping, but what is definite is the fact that he had lied about his whereabouts that night. It will hopefully be discovered before the first season ends, as Weller is currently trying to patch things up with his estranged father.
