Blindspot Season 2 is about to premiere with huge revelations and some new cast members. The biggest question in its debut season – Jane Doe’s true identity – will be revealed this season.
Creator Martin Gero has assured a very exciting season this year. He teased that Jane’s real name and identity will be revealed by the end of the premiere episode. The lead character is being played by actress Jaimie Alexander. “[It] complicates it more once you find out who she is. It allows us to tee up the theme for the second season, which I don’t want to [talk about] until the first episode’s aired,” Gero said.
Gero also told Entertainment Tonight that Jane and FBI Agent Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) relationship will definitely change in Season 2. The two had their Taylor Shaw fallout in the previous season. However, Gero noted that even though Jane and Weller are angry of each other, the romantic connection and electricity between them is still there. He teased that the two will work beautifully in Blindspot Season 2.

Gero said everyone will start on equal footing in Season 2. The Blindspot second season will pick up three months after Jane was tortured in a CIA black site. Weller and his team have already moved on and are no longer pursuing leads on Jane’s tattoos. When Jane returns, the animosity is still there but they will work with her just the same. As much as the team is furious at her, they know that no one should be tortured.
