As expected, NBC has given the heave-ho to “The Blacklist: Redemption” after a single season. The cancellation comes a day after parent show “The Blacklist” was renewed for 2017-18.

“The Blacklist: Redemption” centered on several criminals from the original series as they became “an elite mercenary team” acting on the right side of the law for a change. Ryan Eggold, Famke Janssen and Edi Gathegi led the cast.

The show averaged slightly under a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 and a little over 4 million viewers for its initial airing this season. It was a modest DVR performer, growing to 1.2 and 6.23 million viewers after a week of delayed viewing.

“Redemption” joins “Powerless,” “Timeless” and “Emerald City” on NBC’s list of cancellations this season. “Grimm” also ended its run after six years. The network has yet to announce a decision on “Law & Order: SVU,” “Trial & Error” and “Chicago Justice,” but all of its other scripted series will be back in 2017-18.
