The Blacklist will be back!

While I hear The Blacklist star James Spader had renegotiated his deal early on, adding an extra year, the rest of the show's original cast members' contracts were up at the end of the current sixth season. It is now confirmed that The Blacklist will be returning for yet another season!

Although ratings have dipped slightly for The Blacklist in recent years, the series has been a solid performer for NBC since it debuted in 2013.

Thus far this season - its first one airing on Fridays - The Blacklist is averaging a 0.6 demo rating and about 4 million total viewers, besting only Blindspot and the already axed Midnight, Texas among all NBC dramas.


The sixth season of the show now airs on NBC.

In a statement, NBC Entertainment's Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta said, "Congratulations to our unbelievable producers, cast and crew, all of whom continue to work at the top of their game and make The Blacklist one of NBC's signature series".

The Blacklist was created by Jon Bokenkamp, who is an executive producer along with John Davis, John Eisendrath, John Fox, Joe Carnahan and Spader. The show, headlined by James Spader and Megan Boone, follows the story of a wanted man, Raymond "Red" Reddington, who surrenders before the Federal Bureau of Investigation and helps in capturing some of the most notorious criminals.

"The Blacklist" is a production of Davis Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and Universal Television".
