While the finer details about Blindspot season 5 are not fully out there at present, there’s at least one welcome tidbit that we’ve got that we can share: A 100th-episode celebration for the NBC series seems very much on the way!
In a new post on Twitter (see below), show executive producer Martin Gero mentions the hashtag #100episodes while discussing the journey of the series, and he also notes that all the way back in 2014 he wrote out a five-season plan for what the show could be. Now, he’s going to have a chance to tell the entirety of that story. Of course, we imagine that there were some changes here and there to the formula over the years (shows often change with time), but it’s pretty incredible that everything gets to come full-circle.
While we still haven’t heard the precise episode count for the final season, signs point to it being shorter than the typical 22. Reports yesterday suggested that it could be 13, and judging from the 100 episodes comment, it is going to be at least 11. That’s how many installments the show needs in order to get to that particular threshold. There is a little bit of poetry that would come from the show ending with its 100th episode, which is something that Gotham actually had a chance to do a little bit earlier this year — yet, we’d be more than fine with getting two extra episodes and ending with 102, if that situation comes up. As a matter of fact, we’re always going to prefer getting to see more episodes than the other way around — how could we not?

More information about Blindspot season 5 and the plans from an NBC standpoint will likely come out at the network’s upfront presentation next week — if not then, a little bit later this summer. As for when the show’s going to return in order to wrap up the remainder of its season, think in terms of Friday, May 24. The fact that the show was moved out of May sweeps and was still renewed in the first place is probably one of the most shocking headlines that we have to report on right now. We’re grateful to NBC for at least giving the story a chance to end on a proper note, and giving Gero and his team all the time necessary to plan it.
