How will the first half of the season set up Blacklist: Redemption?
JON BOKENKAMP: Redemption, we don’t know exactly when it will air, but we know it won’t be until midseason. We also know that we have a lot of story to tell with Tom and Liz and how they’re going to handle the situation with Kirk. We’re going to feel our way through that. It’s something that we have some really good, fun, big ideas planned for where that show goes, but we’re going to have to organically get there. All I can really say about it is we have a lot of story to tell and story to unpack with our existing show before we can look ahead to that. Yes, Scottie is going to come back, and there’s a possibility that any of those characters [will, too]. What’s fun about it is, because the spin-off is not a blue print of The Blacklist — it’s not Blacklist: Chicago — we may coexist. They share DNA, and they share characters, and there is a possibility for characters to weave back and forth between those two worlds. We’ll see how that develops.
