‘The Blacklist’ Ending With Final Season 10, Cancelled at NBC

The Blacklist will cross out its very last name in 2023.

NBC’s long-running crime drama — recently noted by TVLine as one of 13 series airing with a very uncertain future — will wrap up its upcoming 10th season, the channel announced Wednesday.

“After 10 years, hundreds of Blacklist cases and over 200 episodes produced, we are honored to come to our conclusion,” said showrunner and EP John Eisendrath. “It’s been incredibly fun creating the weird, devious, delicious Blacklisters to challenge Raymond Reddington and our FBI task force every week. We want to thank everyone at NBC and Sony, our amazing team who achieve the impossible every day, our endlessly inventive writers and producers, and our remarkable cast who brought these characters to life.We appreciate our dedicated fans who came out for this wonderful ride and we are thrilled to share this final season with them.

Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, added, “It’s not often that a series resonates so deeply with an audience that it’s aired for 10 seasons, but The Blacklist has proved to be a perfect combination of highly talented producers, stellar writing, a cast that never failed to deliver, and a crew that always rose to the occasion. Many thanks to our partners at Sony, to everyone over the past decade who has made this show such an integral part of NBC history and, of course, a special nod to James Spader, whose performance remains nothing short of spectacular.

The Blacklist first bowed in 2013 and focused on Spader’s Raymond Reddington, a wanted criminal who turns himself in to the FBI but insists on only speaking to profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). Towards the end of its run, the series went through some major changes, including the exits of Boone and series creator Jon Bokenkamp at the end of Season 8.

More recently, series regulars Amir Arison (who played Agent Aram Mojtabai) and Laura Sohn (Agent Alina Park) departed in the Season 9 finale; their void will be at least partially filled by the addition of newcomer Anya Banerjee, who will appear in Season 10 as Siya Malik, the daughter of Season 1 character Meera Malik.

The 10th and now final season of The Blacklist premieres Sunday, February 26 at 10/9c. Watch a promo for the latest episodes above, then drop a comment with your thoughts on the news.
