So, What Information Is Available Regarding “The Blacklist Season 8”:
Many critics have given positive reviews to each season of the show. The show makers are ready for the next season which is most probably coming out on November 13th, 2020. This is great news for fans who have been waiting for the next season to make its debut. But, now many people say that due to the COVID-19 situation, the show will be delayed. For this reason, our expectation is that if the show is delayed, the show will come out sometime in the year 2021. This is bad news for the fans as there is no confirmation that the show is coming out this year.
If we look at the cast of The Blacklist Season 8, nothing is specified. But, we can expect most of the members of the cast return. This includes :
- James Spader who plays Raymond “Red” Reddington, a criminal mastermind who is now an informant for the FBI.
- Megan Boone who plays Elizabeth “Liz” Keen, a special agent and also, a profiler at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
- Diego Klattenhoff who plays Donald Ressler
- Ryan Eggold who plays Tom Keen. He was removed from the series later in The Blacklist Season 5.
Many other versatile actors feature in the show. Some will return while others won’t in The Blacklist Season 8. The show comes under the direction of Jon Bokenkamp who also worked the spin-off for the series, “Blacklist: Redemption”. John Eisendrath says :
“This year we have all the big stuff that we were unable to finish at the end of the last season that is going to start this season. so, the next season 8 stats in a much more heightened and dramatic place than normal seasons do because we are gonna tell the story that we were unable to tell at the end of the last season”.
