It's only been on the air for four weeks and NBC has already approved the back nine episodes of Blindspot.

This takes the show's episode count to 22 for it's first season and also makes it the first show of the 2015/16 season to score itself a full season order.

For it's first episode, Blindspot raked in 10.6 million total viewers, which is the best rating in this time slot on NBC since the season two premiere of The Blacklist. The show is also the season’s top-rated new series for adults 18-49, Monday's most watched drama and the top new series.

So with stats like that, the news of a full season shouldn't come as a surprise.

Created by Martin Gero, the show revolves around Jane Doe ( Jaimie Alexander), who is found in Times Square with no memory and mysterious tattoos on her body that, with the help of the FBI, help track down dangerous criminals.

Blindspot stars Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back), Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Without A Trace), Rob Brown (Treme), Audrey Esparza (Power), Ukweli Roach (The Royals) and Ashley Johnson (The Killing).

Blindspot airs Mondays on NBC.

I couldn't be happier about this news! Blindspot is the best new show of the 2015/16 season, straight from the first episode. My only hope is that it can remain entertaining enough for a full 22 episode season.

My only hope is that if they are going to get the two leads to enter into a romance, they will wait until Season Two or later, much like Bones and Castle.
