NBC is bringing back The Blacklist for a seventh season after the entire cast agreed to return. The Universal owned channel first debuted the thriller/drama in 2013, and it immediately became a big hit for them. With James Spader leading the way and a prime Monday night slot, The Blacklist was a ratings giant and very well received by audiences and critics alike. The popularity gave NBC confidence to move the series to a new time slot, where it’s remained a consistent performer despite a drastic fall off from season one.
Now in its sixth season, the series continues to follow Spader as ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington and Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen. The show is currently in the middle of a storyline dedicated to Red being imprisoned and forced to plead guilty in an effort to devise an escape. While he’s been busy with life in prison, Keen and the task force have continued to hunt down people on the blacklist. With still half of the season to go though, The Blacklist‘s fate has already been revealed.
