The Blacklist is an American crime thriller television series that premiered on NBC on September 23, 2013. The show follows Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), a former U.S. Navy officer turned high-profile criminal, who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades.
THE BLACKLIST SEASON 8
The Blacklist was renewed for Season 8 back in February before the coronavirus pandemic shut physical production on Season 7 down early.
The people who make The Blacklist scrambled to put together a half-animated finale, which looked crazy but ended the season in a place that set up Season 8.
It’s impossible to say when the show will return, but here’s what we do know about The Blacklist Season 8 so far.
THE BLACKLIST 8: CAST
The regular cast will return, plus one. James Spader, Megan Boone, and the rest of the regular cast are slated to return, along with a new series frequent.
Laura Sohn, who recurred as new Task Force member Agent Alina Park in Season 7, has been promoted to the main cast for Season 8, according to TV Line. Park replaces Samar Navabi (Mozhan Marno), who left in Season 6.
THE BLACKLIST SEASON 8: PLOT
Based on the song that closes out The Blacklist season 7, “Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones, life will seemingly become even more difficult for Red in The Blacklist season 8.
Due to his declining health, Red will have to re-think his legacy plan and reassess his underworld empire. As of now, the future depends on Liz and what she decides to do with her power in The Blacklist season 8.
HOW MANY EPISODES ARE GOING TO BE THERE IN BLACKLIST SEASON 8?
It is not confirming now how many episodes are going to be there in season 8. It is likely to run on a 19 episode show like the previous season.
THE BLACKLIST: IMDb
The Blacklist has been rated 8 out of 10 on IMDb. About 182.3k votes provide this rating.
THE BLACKLIST SEASON 8: IS IT GOING TO BE THE LAST?
For now, it would not be right to make any comment regarding this question. We don’t know how the story will proceed and conclude in the 8th season. So, let’s wait for the 8th season premiere before making any assumptions.
WHEN WILL SEASON 9 ARRIVE?
The answer to this question depends entirely on the above one. We don’t know how season 8 will conclude. If makers find the story in the 8th season, there might be no season 9. But if they wish to continue the series, we might have the next seasons as well.
