Is Blacklist Season 10 Release Date Status Renewed At NBC?
Season 9 of the popular show “The Blacklist” which was renewed for a ninth season early in 2021, premiered on October 21, 2021 (via Deadline).
The new episodes won’t come fast enough for fans of the long-running crime thriller, who have long been captivated by the fundamental mystery of the enigmatic, mesmerizing main character.
The arrest of Boston criminal Whitey Bulger was the initial inspiration for “The Blacklist” but the show’s distinctive point of view has turned it into something of an anomaly in the world of procedurals. In an interview with Collider, former showrunner John Eisendrath remarked that “One of the incredibly fun things about working on a show like this is that you are trying to imagine how a criminal would look at things.”

With Season 9 which aired back in Oct 2021, it’s easy for viewers to now ponder about a hypothetical Season 10. Who knows what the show’s future holds following yet another round of shocking betrayals and storyline twists?
Here’s everything we presently know about the release date, the anticipated cast, and the plotlines for Season 10 of “The Blacklist.”
Blacklist Season 10 Release Date
NBC has yet to officially renew “The Blacklist” for a tenth season of the television series, even if Season 9 premiered on the network in October.
There are a number of possible causes in why NBC hasn’t ordered another season. The show is nearly a decade old, and while its ratings have remained fairly steady and consistent during that time period, the network may decide to hold off on producing a new season until it sees how well the early episodes of Season 9 perform.
NBC also relocated Season 9 to Thursday nights after “Law & Order: For The Defense” went through, so they likely want to be sure the show will continue successfully in another time slot.
If NBC decides to keep “The Blacklist” around for the tenth season, Netflix could be a major factor in that decision. Anticipate a new season of the popular drama if Season 9 maintains its strong popularity. However, don’t expect it before the fall of 2022, as it takes a lot of time and effort to produce 18-22 episodes of television per year.
Blacklist Season 10 Cast
The cast of “The Blacklist” Season 10 will certainly appear considerably different compared to prior seasons after the devastating conclusion of Season 8. For one, Megan Boone, who played FBI Handler Elizabeth Keen, stated that she was departing the show after the most recent season (via Deadline).
Accordingly Elizabeth Keen seemingly perished at the end of the Season 8 episode “Konets” at the hands of Townsend and his associates.

Several other regulars, on the other hand, are almost certain to return. Lead actor James Spader will definitely come back for another season, in part because the show would have a hard time delivering its stories without his character, Raymond “Red” Reddington.
Agent Donald Ressler, played by Diego Klattenhoff, and Assistant Director Harold Cooper, played by Harry Lennix, are both expected to return.
“The Blacklist” will have to make future seasons without the presence of Elizabeth Keen, therefore it’s impossible to predict what the whole cast will look like in Season 10 of the show.
“The Blacklist” is centered around Raymond “Red” Reddington, a notorious criminal and fugitive, who has handed himself up to the FBI, along with the “blacklist” of the title: a long list of dangerous criminals and terrorists he has known and associated with.

Over the course of the show, Red supported the FBI in apprehending these criminals, albeit using his own unique techniques, while the mystery of his attraction to FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen was eventually revealed.
Obviously, the future season will dictate most of the storylines in Season 10, but it seems very probable that the show will continue to center on Red and the FBI team he assists while building on the enormous disclosures made about Red’s past at the end of Season 8. One issue remains, after all: If the actual Red died long ago, then who exactly is the man who took his identity?
The first seven seasons of “The Blacklist” are currently available to stream on Netflix so you can get up to speed on all of the latest developments and surprises in the NBC thriller.
