‘The Blacklist’ To Conclude with Upcoming Season 10 on NBC

The Blacklist is coming to an end! The long-running NBC crime drama will conclude with its upcoming 10th season, which debuts later this month. The network made the announcement on Wednesday.

The series, which stars James Spader, has consistently garnered good ratings for the network. With its upcoming season, the show will achieve another major feat of airing its 200th episode. Read on to know more about the series’ conclusion.

The Blacklist to End After Season 10

Announcing the move, showrunner and executive producer John Eisendrath said, “After 10 years, hundreds of Blacklist cases and more than 200 episodes produced, we’re honored to reach our conclusion. It’s been incredibly fun to create the strange, devious and delightful Blacklisters to challenge Raymond Reddington and our FBI Task Force each week.”

“We would like to thank everyone at NBC and Sony, our extraordinary crew who make the impossible happen every day, our endlessly inventive writers and producers, and our remarkable cast who brought life to these characters. We appreciate our dedicated fanbase who came along for this wonderful ride,” he added.

Lisa Katz, president of scripted content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, also released a statement: “It isn’t often that a series resonates so deeply with an audience that it airs for 10 seasons, but The Blacklist proved to be a perfect combination of talented producers, stellar writing, a cast that never failed to deliver and a crew that always rose to the occasion.”

“A huge thank you to our partners at Sony, everyone from the past decade who made this show an integral part of NBC’s storied history and, of course, a special nod to James Spader, whose performance remains nothing short of spectacular,” she continued.

The Blacklist is One of the Highest Watched Shows on NBC

Debuting in 2013, The Blacklist became one of the most watched and profit-generating ventures for NBC. The previous season reached 29.1 million viewers and was widely popular among the 18-49 demographic. The network also signed a lucrative deal with Netflix and gets a revenue from its streaming.

The series is produced by Universal Television and Sony Pictures Television Studios. Talking about the show’s conclusion, Jason Clodfelter, Co-President of Sony Pictures Television Studios, said, “James has led a multi-talented and diverse cast that also featured legendary guest stars and hundreds of Blacklisters who made us all root for this anti-hero.”

He further added, “We tip our Reddington hat to the dedicated production staff, hard-working crew and talented writers. The unpredictable plot twists have produced a legacy TV show that served to entertain a worldwide audience and as we enter the final season, we can’t wait for audiences to see how Raymond Reddington takes a final bow.”

The Final Season will Premiere this Month

The tenth season of the show is all set to premiere on NBC on February 26 at 10/9c. In the final instalment, Raymond Reddington will face unprecedented danger as former Blacklisters unite to seek revenge against him. 

Apart from Spader, the show also starred Diego Klattenhoff, Anya Banerjee, Hisham Tawfiq, and Harry Lennix. John Eisendrath, Bokenkamp, John Davis, John Fox, Lukas Reiter, Sean Hennen, Laura A. Benson, Allison Glock-Cooper, Daniel Cerone, and T Cooper serve as executive producers.
