The crime drama will conclude its story this year.
February 1, 2023
NBC announced today that The Blacklist is coming to an end after its upcoming 10th season. The news comes weeks ahead of the crime drama's now-final run, which is scheduled to premiere later this month.
"After 10 years, hundreds of Blacklist cases and more than 200 episodes produced, we're honored to reach our conclusion," said showrunner John Eisendrath. "It's been incredibly fun to create the strange, devious and delightful Blacklisters to challenge Raymond Reddington and our FBI Task Force each week. We would like to thank everyone at NBC and Sony, our extraordinary crew who make the impossible happen every day, our endlessly inventive writers and producers, and our remarkable cast who brought life to these characters. We appreciate our dedicated fanbase who came along for this wonderful ride and are excited to share this final season with them."
Led by James Spader, the series premiered in 2013 as one of the top new shows of the year. While its best days are well behind it, the show still garnered a respectable audience in its most-recent Friday night time slot. The upcoming final season will see yet another new time slot for the show, with the network slotting it in on Sunday nights for the time being.
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.
The 10th and final season of The Blacklist premieres on Sunday, February 26 at 10:00pm.

Should be fun to watch
I think they had to end it because they were running out of numbers under 200 for the titles.
A long while ago I read something in the lines of her getting the role because a rich family member pulled some strings.
I am glad though, that it is ending. I still enjoy watching it, although it is past its prime, and I am glad we will get an official ending rather than an abrupt cancellation. James Spader made his old age comfortable now that this show will go into syndication forever, given its passed the 200 episode mark, which means he will get paid for this forever.
Hope the current fans enjoy the ending
