'Blacklist' producers: Tom will be part of original, sequel

Tom Keen will remain part of "The Blacklist" as he steps into "The Blacklist: Redemption," the spinoff's producers said.

"He's always going to be part of 'The Blacklist' family," producer John Eisendrath said of the character played by Ryan Eggold in both NBC dramas.

The spinoff, which debuts Feb. 23 with eight episodes, stars Eggold and Famke Janssen as mercenaries who have joined with others trying to make amends for the havoc they've caused. Janssen plays Susan "Scottie" Hargrave, the group's leader and Tom's mother. He knows their relationship but she's in the dark, believing her son is long dead.
