The exciting world of The Blacklist just got a little bit bigger — and hopefully still full of marvelous hats. NBC announced today that The Blacklist: Redemption has been picked up for a series order. The show will follow undercover operative Tom Keen (previous Blacklist regular Ryan Eggold) who “joins forces with Susan ‘Scottie’ Hargrave (Famke Janssen), the brilliant and cunning chief of Grey Matters, a covert mercenary organization that solves problems governments don’t dare touch.” Following the unexpected death of his wife Liz this past season, Tom teams up with Scottie to hunt for her attacker, and they “employ their unique skills and resources in a dangerous world of deadly criminals.” Tom also begins his own “covert mission to find out more about his shadowy past,” and ends up discovering that Scottie is actually his biological mother. Awkward! Edi Gathegi and Tawny Cypress round out the cast.
