‘Blindspot’ season 2: Show creator hints at lighter tone with new timeslot

Blindspot -There are going to be several changes coming up on the second season of “Blindspot,” and there is a major motivating factor behind it: The show not airing on Monday nights at 10:00 p.m. Eastern anymore. The series will be shifting over to a new spot in Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m., which is something that is considered for the most part to be a “family hour” where younger viewers are watching.

As a result of this change, you can prepare yourself for an upcoming batch of episodes that plays a little more for laughs, and will be a mixture of procedural elements and a larger, serialized story. However, this doesn’t mean that the show is changing entirely. Creator Martin Gero really stated it best per Deadline:

“We’re not shoot anyone in the head anymore … Obviously, we are toning back some of the violence on the show but not to a point where people won’t recognize it.”

Maybe some out there would be bummed about a slightly different tone for the show, but really we’re not that interesting in something that gritty and hyper-violent on a major network since there’s only so far they can go with it. We think putting limitations on that could lead to some creativity elsewhere, and that could be a good thing. Plus, we tend to love shows that tend to bridge the gap between comedy and drama, especially in the hour-long format. This is why a show like “NCIS” has become so commercially-pleasing to such a large audience.
