According to Deadline, NBC has reportedly negotiated a license fee reduction, which means the drama is profitable for the network. With an established fanbase and consistent viewings, NBC can lock in a strong international sales and a Netflix SVOD deal.
4) The Bigger Puzzle!
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, creator Martin Gero teased Jane’s tattoos are par a larger puzzle, “Yes, she has enough tattoos for nine or 10 years. … Her legs are just for the spinoff.”

1) The Season 3 Finale!
According to Entertainment Weekly, Gero reveals South Africa will play a huge role in the finale, “South Africa has always been such an incredibly important part of the Blindspot mythology.
