Blindspot Season 5 is one of the most awaited shows of NBC. The network officially renewed the show for Season 5 back in May, few weeks before the fourth season concluded. Unfortunately, they also revealed that the fifth season would serve as the final run of the series. And since then, the network succeeded in keeping the entire details of Blindspot Season 5 inside the closet. However, it revealed that the final run of Blindspot would have 13 episodes queue.
Blindspot focuses on a woman, Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander), who found herself waking up naked in the middle of New York Times Square, covered with tattoos. Later, the FBI discovered that the tattoos on her body were connected to one of the cases they have been working on. However, as the series continues, it linked to other conspiracies too.
The show debuted in September 2015, followed by other three seasons in next three years. The show has been received quite well by the audience and the critics as well. However, the reviews and viewership decreased with every passing installment.
