The title compound, [Cd(NCS)2(C6H5N5)2]n, is a coordination polymer with the CdII centre located on a twofold rotation axis. The CdII centre assumes a distorted octahedral geometry. The thiocyanate anions function as bridging ligands between the CdII centres, leading to a chain-like arrangement expanding along .
