The crime drama will continue in 2020.
March 11, 2019
NBC announced today that The Blacklist has been picked up for a seventh season. Word is that Season 7 was already secured last May when the crime drama was renewed for Season 6, though nothing was said at the time. Currently sitting at an impressive 121 total episodes, the show could surpass the 150 mark if next season follows suit with another full 22 episodes.
Led by James Spader, the series premiered in 2013 as one of the top new shows of that year. While its best days have long-since passed, the show still draws a decent audience in its new Friday night time slot. This season marks its first as a mid-season player, with a January premiere rather than its typical fall start. The network will likely keep it in the mid-season for 2019-2020.
The Blacklist stars Spader as an ex-government agent-turned-FBI's most wanted fugitive, who mysteriously surrenders himself to the agency with an offer to help them bring down some of the country's top criminals. The only condition is that he gets to work alongside an FBI profiler named Elizabeth Keen, which leads to a twisting series of events that slowly reveal his true motives.

What a fantastic show. The story lines are extremely intriguing, and while the Liz story line did get a little old, Spader's acting, and the stories are always full of action, intrigue, twists, and surprises. It's definitely one of the best shows on television today. I'm looking forward to Season # 7 and hope it can go on further. I will be very disappointed when it finally ends.

I have come to detest tv shows, but the exception is Blacklist ~ it is so well done! Spader is a terrific actor, and the script is terrific. I think it is the best show on television.

James Spader, liked the guy in Boston Legal, but the Blacklist in my humble estimation is the very best in plot(s), writing in general, creativity, story line, characters etc., but to say the very least the acting/interaction with Spader at the helm. One of my all-time favorite actors. So cool, suave and erudite among others with his character and believable. James Spader is a great technician within his craft. Definitely two thumbs and ten toes upward!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Blacklist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I love the show The Blacklist! James Spader is hilarious and has captured our total interest. He is incredible and the best! However we watch the show for the story line, the dynamics of the whole team (we love them all), the twists and turns.
Congratulations to James Spader!
Please keep the Blacklist going. We are waiting anxiously for series # 7 and then hope that it will keep going after that.

I must agree that the show has deviated from the original plot in the first series and episodes. The master criminal and guardian that Red (James Spader) is entertaining to watch. However, I agree with the comment "Ever since they made Liz and her drama front and center, both Red and even the Black List serve as props for Liz and her drama! It has become tedious to watch and has spoiled what was once great!" I am hoping that now that the Liz drama has played it scenes we can now get back to the FBI/Super Crime fighting that made it great at the beginning. The FBI should not be portrayed as part of Red's criminal organization but should be using him to uphold law and order, by returning to the original story line.

I agree with Steve. The show has seen better days for sure. Season 7 should be the last.

I love the black list. Always love the twists and turns. Loved this season when they all got together to save Red. I hope they all come back, plus mr. Kaplan. Please don’t lose anyone or kill somebody off. Let us have some happiness. James Spader is the best actor ever. Love to hear his stories!

I hated the contrived season 5 ending and have been struggling to find a reason why I should watch S6, which I have saved on my DVR. I soooo want to delete it all and call it a wrap. Sigh.
