NBC loves spin-offs. Currently, the American station broadcasts two spin-offs of the series “Chicago Fire” – “Chicago PD” and “Chicago Med.”. No wonder that the heads of NBC plan to make the next installment of the well-known and popular series. This time it fell on the “Black List”.
Famke Janssen (“Taken”, “X-Men”, “A Way to Murder”) will play the main role in the “Black List” spin-off. She will play the role of Susan “Scottie” Halsted. Ryan Eggold, or Tom from the original series, will also be involved in the project. In the new production, Tom and Susan’s relationship is to resemble that between Liz (Megan Boone) and Red (James Spader).
For the first time, viewers will see Janssen in the final scene in the episode, which airs on May 5. A week later, NBC will show an episode that will serve as a pilot for the new series.
So far, the station has not ordered the full season of the series. The decision on a possible first one will most likely be made at the end of May.
