Word is out that NBC has picked up The Blacklist for a tenth season. The good news was announced by star James Spader Tuesday night during an appearance on The Tonight Show.

Led by Spader, the series premiered in 2013 as one of the top new shows of the year. While its best days are behind it, the show still draws a respectable audience in its Friday night time slot. It is currently the network's third longest-running scripted series.

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 the FBI, which leads to a twisting series of events that slowly reveal his true motives.

Look for Season 10 of The Blacklist to premiere this fall as part of the 2022-2023 season.
