NBC's Blindspot is getting its full freshman order.

The freshman series from Greg Berlanti and Martin Gero has earned an order for nine additional episodes, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The news comes after NBC previously ordered the back-nine scripts for the drama starring Jaimie Alexander.

Airing Mondays at 10 p.m., Blindspot ranks as the season's No. 1-rated new series in adults 18-49. Through three weeks, Blindspot has averaged a 2.7 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.6 million viewers overall in live-plus-same-day results.

The first two episodes have grown by 4.6 million viewers when factoring in three days of DVR — the biggest increases for those weeks among all broadcast and cable programs. From Warner Bros. Television, the drama co-starring Sullivan Stapleton, is Monday's most-watched drama and top new series after three days of delayed viewing.

Blindspot is the first fall freshman series to earn a full-season order. Fox's midseason comedy Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life earned a seven-episode pickup to keep the series in production. 

Blindspot is one of six shows produced by Greg Berlanti Productions and his production company topper Sarah Schechter.
