The Blacklist season 7 has returned to NBC for more drama and intrigue for Raymond Reddington and his FBI collaborators.
NBC renewed The Blacklist for season 7, bringing another run of episodes from its production partner on the series, Sony Pictures TV. The show starring James Spader as the concierge of crime Raymond Reddington and Megan Boone as his sometimes moral, sometimes ne’er do well protege, FBI Agent Elizabeth Keene has been a hit with audiences from the very start, so the renewal announcement was not a huge surprise.
In fact, The Blacklist season 7 was already in the cards since Sony and NBC worked out a two-season deal back in May of 2018, according to THR, but the news of the renewal came just as the ink dried on contracts with Boone and fellow original cast members, Diego Klatenhoff (Ressler) and Harry Lennix (Cooper). Although Spader’s contract expires at the end of the seventh season, this is not a confirmation that the series is ending in 2020.
