‘Blindspot’ is an American crime drama television series that airs on NBC in the US, on CTV in Canada, on Sky Living in the UK, and on Seven Network in Australia. Created by Martin Gero, the show follows the journey of a mysterious tattooed woman with no memory as she works with the FBI to try and uncover her identity.
A pretty old show, Season 1 of ‘Blindspot’ made its way to viewers’ screens on September 21, 2015. It received mixed reviews from television critics but positive feedback from audiences, thus prompting NBC to renew it for a second season. Season 2 subsequently premiered on September 14, 2016, and was followed by the premieres of Season 3 and Season 4 on October 27, 2017 and October 21, 2018 respectively. While fans of the show are eagerly waiting for news on a fifth season now, the prospects of ‘Blindspot’ getting renewed don’t look too good. Here’s everything we know about it.
Blindspot Cast: Who is in it?
‘Blindspot’ is a character-driven crime drama, and consequently, it has a long list of cast members who play important characters in the show.
Jaimie Alexander plays one of the main characters, Remi “Jane Doe” Briggs, who is found unconscious and devoid of her memory in Times Square. Subsequently, the FBI takes her into protective custody and they work with her to understand the coded tattoos on her body and try and uncover her true identity. Although devoid of a conscious memory, Jane has occasional flashbacks into her life, which help in the search for her true identity.

When Jane is discovered unconscious in Times Square, Kurt recognizes her as his missing childhood friend, and helps Jane in her search for her true identity. Later in the show, Kurt and Jane end up marrying.
Rob Brown plays the role of FBI Special Agent Edgar Reade, who is part of Kurt’s team and helps him and Jane get to the bottom of several mysteries surrounding Jane’s coded tattoos. Audrey Esparza plays another member of Kurt’s team, FBI Special Agent Natasha “Tasha” Zapata, who later leaves the FBI to join the CIA. Additionally, the show includes as Ashley Johnson as FBI Forensics Unit head Patterson, Ukweli Roach as FBI psychiatrist Robert Borden, Marianne Jean-Baptiste as the assistant director in charge of FBI’s New York Field Office, Bethany Mayfair, Archie Panjabi as Nas Kamal, the head of the NSA’s secret Zero Division department, Luke Mitchell as Jane’s brother and Sandstorm member Roman Briggs, Michelle Hurd as Jane and Roman’s adoptive mother and leader of the terrorist group Sandstorm, Ellen “Shepherd” Briggs, and Ennis Esmer as a computer programmer-turned-internet crime lord, Rich Dotcom. This wraps up the list of main cast members in the show.
