The new crime drama starring James Spader has performed strong on ratings since its debut, and will now air its first season with a total of 22-episodes.
“The many layers of Red Reddington and his mysterious reasons for getting into bed with the FBI seem to be fascinating to fans of this show,” NBC Entertainment president Salke said in a statement. “With great talent like James Spader and Megan Boone on board, as well our stellar executive producers and the whole cast and crew, we believe this outstanding series will continue to make NBC a big destination on Monday nights.”
The show which goes head-to-head with CBS’ Hostages on Monday nights was previously ordered with only 13-episodes.
