“The stakes got extremely high for the characters with each episode. So we took advantage of having fewer episodes to get to the story faster.”
“Sure, we’re at the point I envisioned. Basically, the plan was always five seasons. At least I knew that, getting here, we’d have these characters run away. This is the final season of the show. Everything is a celebration.”
In Brazil, all seasons of blind spot, are available from Netflix.
