This is a package for NBC’s “The Blacklist” after its upcoming 10th season
“The Blacklist” is coming to an end.
While it’s good news that the long-running crime series is returning to viewers’ screens after a hiatus of several months, the bad news is that the upcoming tenth season will be its last. The season will debut on NBC on February 26 in the 2023 schedule of television premieres.
In its final lap around the block, “The Blacklist” got a new time slot, moving to Sundays after alternating between Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in other seasons.
Fans are ready to say goodbye to the “blacklist” after the next season
Launched in September 2013, “The Blacklist” won the hearts of many with its story following wanted fugitive Raymond “Red” Reddington, who mysteriously surrendered to the FBI and offered to help capture dangerous criminals.
His only condition to work only with the new profiler, Elizabeth Keen, is fulfilled, Red gets to work. Unfortunately, after a decade of entertaining fans around the world, series executive producer John Eisendrath released a statement confirming the show’s end. In the words of Eisendrath:
“After 10 years, hundreds of blacklist cases and more than 200 episodes, we are honored to have come to a conclusion. It’s been incredibly fun creating the weird, devious and delightful Blacklisters who challenge Raymond Reddington and our FBI task force each week.”
The showrunner praised “everyone at NBC and Sony” and the “extraordinary crew who make the impossible happen every day, our endlessly inventive writers and producers, and the remarkable cast who bring these characters to life.”
He thanked the “dedicated fan base” for making it an “amazing journey” and is excited to share this final season with them. Sony Pictures Television Studios co-president Jason Clodfelter said:
“Thank you to our wonderful partners at NBC for a remarkable 10 seasons of ‘The Blacklist,’ the series that introduced the world to Raymond Reddington, brilliantly played by James Spader.”
A judge at the “Don Thompson LGBT Film Festival” praised Spader for “leading a diverse and diverse cast that included legendary guest stars and hundreds of blacklisted characters who made us all root for this anti-hero.”
He concluded by asking readers to tip their “Redington hats” to the “dedicated production staff, hardworking crew and talented writers.” NBC also topped the the final season of “The Blacklist”, which promised Red a “last ride”.
Megan Boone had a memorable first day on the set of “The Blacklist.”
After becoming a recurring star on the police procedural series “Law & Order: LA,” Boone was cast as FBI agent Elizabeth Keen — the aforementioned profiler on “The Blacklist.”
Although she only played the role for eight years, she left her mark on viewers and hurt them with the news that she was retiring from the show. The explosion reported that the “Blue Bloods” alum reportedly had quite an interesting first few days on the show.
For example, on his first day, Boone had an unforgettable interaction with Spader where he literally stabbed him in the neck. The 39-year-old recounted the scene during an interview in 2021:
“That was the first scene I shot with James, and that’s when I first realized what an incredible collaborator and collaborator he was going to be.”
“That scene in the plot where I stabbed Reddington in the neck was a really incredible day. We were on the 29th floor of the Waldorf Astoria, which was kind of larger than life, you know, it was like being in another paradigm or something,” he continued.
When the interviewer asked him to elaborate on his feelings and how the scene unfolded, Boone admitted that he wasn’t sure of himself. The ‘Bloody Valentine 3D’ actress also claimed that she felt nervous and tried to keep to herself while working hard.
He went on to elaborate that Spader constantly checks in on him and expresses his support, which has helped him become more free and cooperative with the team. Boone even referred to that incident as the moment the special bond he shares with the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” actor began to form.
Since leaving the show, the actress has shared that her decision to quit was to expand her portfolio and work on other television projects.
