Blacklist Season 10: Release Date | Confirmation on Renewal or Cancellation!

The hit series “The Blacklist” Season 9 will premiere on October 21, 2021, after being renewed early in 2021 for another season (via Deadline). Fans of the long-running crime drama, who have long been hooked on the central mystery of the enigmatic, entrancing main character, can’t wait for the new episodes.

“The Blacklist,” which was inspired by the capture of Boston mobster Whitey Bulger (via Showbiz Cheat Sheet), has become an unusual procedural due to its unique perspective.

Former showrunner John Eisendrath told Collider that “one of the incredibly fun things about working on a show like this is trying to imagine how a criminal would look at things.”

With Season 9 premiering this fall, viewers may be wondering about a possible Season 10. What will the show look like after another season of shocking betrayals and unexpected plot twists? Here’s what we currently know about the Season 10 premiere date, cast, and plotlines for “The Blacklist.”

What Is the Plot of Season 10 of The Blacklist?

“The Blacklist” revolves around Raymond “Red” Reddington, a notorious criminal and fugitive who has surrendered to the FBI, along with the title’s “blacklist”: a long list of dangerous criminals and terrorists he has known and associated with.


Throughout the series, Red assisted the FBI in apprehending these individuals, albeit through his unconventional methods, while the mystery of his interest in FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen was gradually revealed.

Obviously, the upcoming season will determine the majority of the Season 10 storylines, but it appears very likely that the show will continue to focus on Red and the FBI team he assists while building on the huge revelations about Red’s past made at the end of Season 8.

After all, if the real Red died a long time ago, who exactly is the man who stole his identity? If you want to catch up on the NBC drama’s various bombshells and plot twists, the first seven seasons are currently available on Netflix.

Who Is the Season 10 Cast of The Blacklist?

After the shocking conclusion of Season 8, the cast of “The Blacklist” Season 10 will most likely look very different from previous seasons. For example, Megan Boone, who played FBI handler Elizabeth Keen on the show, announced her departure after the most recent season (via Deadline).

As a result, Elizabeth Keen appears to have died at the end of Season 8’s finale “Konets” at the hands of Townsend and his associates. Several other regulars, however, are expected to return.

The show’s lead actor, James Spader, will almost certainly return for another season, in part because the show would struggle to tell its stories without his character, Raymond “Red” Reddington.

Diego Klattenhoff as Agent Donald Ressler is also expected to return, as is Harry Lennix as FBI Counterterrorism Division Assistant Director Harold Cooper.

That being said, it is difficult to predict the full cast for Season 10 without knowing the plot of Season 9, but we do know that Boone will not be returning, which means “The Blacklist” will have to make future seasons without Elizabeth Keen.

When Will the Blacklist Season 10 Be Released?

With Season 9 not set to premiere on NBC until October, the network has yet to officially renew “The Blacklist” for a tenth season. There are several possible reasons why NBC has not ordered another season.

For one thing, it’s a nearly ten-year-old drama, and while it’s had consistent and decent-sized ratings for years, the company may wait to see how the ratings for the early unaired Season 9 episodes are before making another season.

NBC also moved Season 9 to Thursday nights after “Law & Order: For The Defense” fell through, so they’re probably hoping the show will still be strong in a different time slot.

The Blacklist has yet to be officially renewed for season 10 by NBC. There is no set release date for the new season as of May 2022. This does not imply that the show has been cancelled.

The show may be on hiatus, and the next season has yet to be announced or scheduled. More information will be added to this post as it becomes available. If you’d like to be notified when Season 10 premieres, sign up for updates below and join the discussion in our forums.

The Blacklist Season 9 Ending Explained

At the end of “Boukman Baptiste,” Red reads a story to Liz’s daughter Agnes. Dembe does the same for his granddaughter Elle at Isabella’s house. Many fans believe that The Blacklist writer, Katarina, has already confirmed that Red is Liz’s mother.

If that’s the case, this scene, which flashes between two men reading a story to their granddaughters, could be another clue to Red’s identity. The books chosen are also intriguing. Red is reading Agnes Pippi Longstocking, a story about a nine-year-old girl who lives with her horse and monkey as pets.

Pippi is vivacious and loves to tell stories about her wild adventures. Her mother, like Agnes, died when she was young. Pippi explains to Red in the section of the story that her mother is watching over her. Pippi’s father was also lost at sea, effectively leaving her an orphan like Agnes.

Dembe, for his part, reads to Elle from L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Dembe quotes an excerpt from the end of the story when the Lion asks Oz for courage. Oz tells the Lion that true bravery comes from facing danger while terrified.

The Age Rating on the Blacklist
