Blacklist Season 10- Season 9 of the hit series “The Blacklist” will premiere on October 21, 2021, after being renewed early in 2021 for another season (via Deadline). Fans of the long-running crime thriller can’t wait for the upcoming episodes, which will focus on the central mystery of the enigmatic, captivating main character.
Because of its distinct perspective, “The Blacklist,” which was inspired by the apprehension of Boston mobster Whitey Bulger (via Showbiz Cheat Sheet), has become an uncommon procedural. “One of the tremendously fun things about working on a show like this is trying to picture how a criminal might look at things,” former showrunner John Eisendrath said in an interview with Collider.
With Season 9 debuting this fall, fans may be wondering if there will be a Season 10. What will the show be like after another season of shocking betrayals and surprise narrative twists? Here’s all we know so far about Season 10 of “The Blacklist,” including the release date, actors, and plotlines.
The Blacklist Season 10 Release Date?
NBC hasn’t formally renewed “The Blacklist” for a tenth season of television since Season 9 doesn’t premiere until October.
There are several possible reasons for NBC’s decision not to order a second season. For one thing, it’s a nearly ten-year-old drama, and while it’s had consistent and respectable ratings for years, the network may wait to see how the early unaired Season 9 episodes perform before deciding to make another season. After “Law & Order: For The Defense” was canceled, NBC relocated Season 9 to Thursday nights, presumably to ensure the show’s success in a new time slot (Deadline).
“The Blacklist” is still a popular Netflix streaming option, which is another reason why NBC may decide to renew it for the tenth season. If Season 9 maintains the show’s high ratings, another season of the successful drama is on the way — but don’t anticipate it until 2022, as producing 18-22 episodes of television per year takes a lot of work.
The Blacklist Season 10 Cast
After the stunning conclusion of Season 8, the cast of “The Blacklist” Season 10 will most likely look quite different from prior seasons. For one thing, Megan Boone, who played FBI Handler Elizabeth Keen on the show, announced her departure following the most recent season (via Deadline). As a result, Elizabeth Keen appears to have died at the hands of Townsend and his associates at the end of the Season 8 finale “Konets.”
Several other regulars, on the other hand, are likely to return. James Spader, who plays Raymond “Red” Reddington, will very certainly return for a second season, in part because the show would struggle to convey its stories without him. Diego Klattenhoff as Agent Donald Ressler and Harry Lennix as FBI Counterterrorism Division Assistant Director Harold Cooper are both expected to return.
That said, it’s impossible to predict how the whole ensemble will appear in Season 10 without knowing the plot of Season 9, but we do know that Boone will not be returning, which means future seasons of “The Blacklist” will be without Elizabeth Keen.
The Blacklist Season 10 Plot
The plot revolves around Raymond “Red” Reddington, a fugitive and legendary criminal who has surrendered to the FBI, together with the “blacklist” of the title: a large list of dangerous criminals and terrorists he has known and associated with. Red supported the FBI in apprehending these criminals during the course of the episode, although through his own unique means, while the mystery surrounding his interest in FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen was eventually revealed.
Obviously, most of the storylines in Season 10 will be determined by the current season, but it appears quite probable that the programme will continue to centre on Red and the FBI team he assists, while building on the enormous revelations regarding Red’s past made at the end of Season 8. After all, if the actual Red died a long time ago, who exactly is the man who assumed his identity?
The first seven seasons of “The Blacklist” are presently streaming on Netflix if you want to catch up on the NBC drama’s multiple bombshells and narrative twists.
Blacklist Season 10 Trailer
Where Can I Watch Season 10 of Blacklist?
The Blacklist is available on Peacock. Peacock currently has one season of The Blacklist available for streaming. New movies, hit series, exclusive Originals, live sports, WWE, news, and more are all available to stream.
How Many Episodes Will Be in Season 10 of the Blacklist?
According to Nielsen, the show’s nine episodes have averaged 5.05 million viewers with a week of delayed viewing; NBC claims that streaming and digital platforms boost the audience to more than 9 million each episode, which is three times more than the show’s same-day viewership of 3.14 million.
How Did the Fans Respond to This News?
As is characteristic of today’s television news, the renewal news has prompted conflicting reactions. It’s no secret that The Blacklist on NBC is a fantastic show. As a result, in recent years, the show’s public image has been warped.
Megan Boone’s Elizabeth Keen’s character had been the focus of much fan conjecture for several seasons. Some fans of The Blacklist are pleased that Boone is no longer on the show, while others believe the show’s dynamic has been lost without her.
He is still a superb lead actor, and for many viewers, his performance is what keeps the programme running. Fans, on the other hand, would like to know the answer to the mystery surrounding his character’s identity, even if it meant the show’s cancellation.
“I loved this programme for so long but I had to quit watching this season,” one anonymous Deadline commenter commented. Others voiced dissatisfaction at the show’s cancellation.
Although NBC profits handsomely from it, the show was gone for me the moment Megan Boone stepped out the door. This programme was fantastic when she and James Spader were on it. Then there’s the truth that they’ve murdered many nice people. When it comes to shows like This Is Us, know when to leave.”
