The Blacklist renewed for season 10 at NBC

The Blacklist, renewed, season 10, NBC, James Spader

NBC has handed out an early season 10 renewal to The Blacklist. The news comes while Season 9 is still on the air.

Star and executive producer James Spader will be returning to headline the series for its tenth season and it will be the second following the departure of both its female lead Megan Boone, who exited at the end of Season 8, and its creator Jon Bokenkamp, per The Hollywood Reporter. John Eisendrath, who has been on the series from the start, co-showrunning with Bokenkamp for the first eight seasons and serving as sole showrunner since the start of Season 9, will also be returning.

The news of the renewal came courtesy of James Spader during a visit to The Tonight Show to promote The Blacklist‘s return to its more regular Friday night slot. The first nine episodes of this season aired on Thursday nights as a result of the Law & Order spinoff Law & Order: For the Defense not moving forward at the network.

This season, The Blacklist jumped ahead in time two years with Red’s (Spader) whereabouts unknown and the members of the FBI task force having gone their separate ways. They reunite, however, behind the common goal of taking down the remaining names on the Blacklist. The series also stars Diego Klattenhoff, Amir Arison, Hisham Tawfiq, Laura Sohn, and Harry Lennix.

Given its constant timeslot changes, The Blacklist has been a solid performer for the network, which said that it had reached 22 million viewers across linear and digital platforms this season.
