While Blindspot was the first series to swing a back nine order, Minority Report is the first series to have its order cut in lieu of a cancellation. Fox has trimmed the order for the feature film sequel by some three episodes, cutting the size of the first season (and likely series as a whole) to some 10 episodes.
