Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) and Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) storylines will continue on “Blindspot” Season 3 which premieres Oct. 27. NBC

“Blindspot” Season 3 will premiere on NBC on Friday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. EST, according to Deadline.

This is the first time in three years that “Blindspot” will air on a Friday. In Season 1, the Jaimie Alexander-starrer premiered on Monday, Sept. 21 at 10 p.m. EST. On its second season, “Blindspot” aired on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST starting Sept. 14. The changes in the time slot may not be a good sign for the once-hit NBC series. In fact, there were speculations that “Blindspot” would no longer be picked up for a third season due to its low ratings.

However, things changed for “Blindspot,” and executive producer Martin Gero had all the reasons to rejoice about the renewal. After all, Gero said that he already has an idea for Season 3 even before it was announced that “Blindspot” would return for another run.

While speaking with Collider, Gero said that for Season 3, he plans to come up with more standalone episodes. This way, viewers can have more fun watching the series instead of feeling stressed over the storylines. “We would like to see a better balance and tone with the show in Season 3. There’s so much going on in the world to stress about. We want ‘Blindspot’ to be the escapist television it’s supposed to be, and not just have it stress you out even more, with the various ways the world could blow up. Although, that will still be a part of it,” he said.

Gero also said that they will return to the roots of “Blindspot,” focusing mostly on Jane Doe’s tattoos. In some ways, Season 3 will be like a reboot for the show. Coming into the third season, there will also be a two-year time jump that will open new angles for the characters.

“What this two-year time jump allows us to do is to refill our secret tank with all of these characters, as well as slightly shift the characters, in a way that I think will be really satisfying. It will be the same old characters, but in a new dynamic that I think will be really satisfying for our fans, so the show doesn’t start to feel stale,” he explained.
