This article might bring sad news for all Reddington and the Taskforce’s fans. Alas, it’s time to say goodbye to the series.
That’s a decade for this criminal drama series that has captivated audiences all around the world. As a result, a lot of viewers were still wondering if the program would be continued or canceled for more seasons in the future. We’re sorry to crush your heart, but all of the reports are accurate! The series will officially finish with The Blacklist Season 11 because, if you’ve been following along, you’ll know that the program’s creators have stated that the show was always designed to conclude sooner than everyone imagined! Without a doubt, many passionate supporters have devoted their own time to viewing the programs throughout the years.
In a statement, Lisa Katz, president of scripted content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said, “It’s not often that a series resonates so deeply with an audience that it airs for ten seasons, but The Blacklist 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.” A special thanks to our Sony partners, everyone over the last decade who helped make this program a part of NBC’s illustrious history, and, of course, a particular mention to James Spader, whose performance remains nothing short of magnificent.”
Why is Blacklist season 11 not happening?
As of this writing, we can officially affirm to fans that there will be no 11th season of The Blacklist because the whole narrative of the program has been finished during the past ten seasons, which has earned generally favorable reviews from reviewers and faithful viewers worldwide.
Furthermore, we can confirm to readers that the tenth and final season of the program will now end on Thursday, July 13, 2023, in the same time slot of 8/7c on NBC and will afterward stream on Peacock. This indicates that the series has decided to end for a legitimate cause, as the show’s makers have always wanted to wrap up the tale elegantly.
Spader explained why he thought the show had to stop with Season 10 in a conversation with NBC. “I think if the show went on beyond this year, it would turn into a very different show,” Spader added.
“And I think one of the nice things about this show has been that we’ve never really had a really clear paradigm for the show,” Spader remarked. “Tonally, the show shifts a lot from episode to episode, and I think even the show has taken strange turns, and I suspect that the show, if it went much further, would just become something less recognizable to me.”
Since the first season of The Blacklist, Spader (who also serves as an executive producer) has captivated audiences as the intriguing fugitive Reddington, who discreetly assists the FBI Task Force in capturing dozens of the world’s most accomplished and elusive criminals, dubbed “Blacklisters.”
Throughout the action-packed final season, viewers watched the Task Force celebrate 200 Blacklisters imprisoned, welcome new Task Force members, and see Red finally confront many of the ghosts plaguing his past as angry Blacklisters returned in the hopes of settling the score.
We are aware that fans would really miss this series as it received generally favorable reviews from audiences and critics all around the world. The series has been praised for breaking viewing records, and each season has gotten favorable reviews, with many reviewers complimenting Spader’s acting in particular.
It was a fantastic program with unexpected turns, drama, and emotional moments that fans have adored for the past 10 years! If you miss these characters, we recommend binge-viewing the complete franchise on NBC and Peacock to remember the narratives and personality arcs that make this program worth watching!
