The Blacklist Season 10 Plot
With 22 million viewers across linear and digital platforms this season, The Blacklist has been a strong performer for the network. As highlighted by Deadline, In the two years following the death of Boone’s Elizabeth Keen, Spader’s Raymond Reddington and the members of the FBI Task Force have disbanded – their lives now changed in unexpected ways and with Reddington’s whereabouts unknown. Finding themselves each at a crossroads, a common purpose compels them to renew their original mission: to take down dangerous, vicious, and eccentric Blacklisters. In the process, they begin to uncover lethal adversaries, unimaginable conspiracies, and surprising betrayals that will threaten alliances and spur vengeance for the past, led by the most devious criminal of them all: Raymond Reddington.
According to NBC Insider, the finale of Season 9 of The Blacklist gives many hints to what the 10th season might entail, and it’s shaking out to be a thrilling one. After eliminating Liz Keen’s murderer, Red finally satiated his need for revenge. Unfortunately for Red, No. 84 on the blacklist escapes from prison and informs many of the other blacklist criminals that Red is an FBI informant. Revenge may have been accomplished by Red, but the same can’t be said for the individuals he has put behind bars, and his safety is now compromised. Check out James Spader’s interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” in which he talks and confirms that The Blacklist has been renewed for a tenth season.
The Blacklist Season 10 Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series who will reprise their roles are as follows James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, Diego Klattenhoff as Donald Ressler, Anya Banerjee as Siya Malik, Hisham Tawfiq as Dembe Zuma, and Harry Lennix as Harold Cooper. The recurring cast members of the series who will reprise their roles are as follows Chin Han as Wujing, Teddy Coluca as Teddy Brimley, and Jonathan Holtzman as Chuck. It will be the first season of the series not to star both Amir Arison and Laura Sohn; it will also be the second season without Megan Boone. Deirdre Lovejoy, who portrays United States Senator Cynthia Panabaker, was present at the October 6 celebration, possibly indicating her involvement in the series.
On November 23, Chris McKenna wrote that he would also be joining the series in an undisclosed role. Siya Malik (Anya Banerjee), a brand-new member of the cast, will also appear. Moreover, Siya will serve as a bit of a flashback for viewers who started watching The Blacklist with Season 1, as she is the daughter of the tragically assassinated Meera Malik (Parminder Nagra). The Blacklist is produced by Davis Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television Studios and Universal Television. Eisendrath, Bokenkamp, John Davis, and John Fox of Davis Entertainment, Spader, Lukas Reiter, Laura A. Benson, Daniel Cerone, Sean Hennen, Allison Glock-Cooper, and T Cooper are executive producers.
The Blacklist Season 10 Episodes and Streaming Options
While announcing the renewal of the series in February, Spader noted that a 22-episode season is expected to be produced, which was later confirmed by TVLine on November 18, 2022. The network has not revealed the exact titles or synopses for the majority of the episodes as of January 2, 2022, which will be revealed as the premiere date approaches. We would like to highlight that the plot of these episodes may vary depending on the theme that the show wishes to convey to the audience for the upcoming season. On the other hand, IMDb did reveal the title of the second episode, simply titled “The Waler,” which does not give much insight into the episode.
So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued in the coming weeks. On the other hand, Season 10 will be available to stream on various digital streaming platforms, like the previous seasons. Right now, you can also watch The Blacklist on Netflix, which is ideal for many international viewers. Additionally, you can also stream the series by renting or purchasing it on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu. Moreover, the series is also available to watch exclusively on the NBC official website for free, where the episodes are published after they air on the channel, based on the user’s location.
The Blacklist Season 10: Is there any new teaser or trailer?
No, the network has not released any trailer for The Blacklist Season 10, and we don’t anticipate seeing one for a while. In the meantime, check out the ninth season to recall all the crucial plotlines which will transpire in the new season. As, the show follows the life of Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), a former U.S. Naval Intelligence officer who disappears off the grid and becomes one of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives. After escaping the clutches of the FBI for numerous years, Red surrenders himself with a list of the most dangerous and vile criminals he has brushed paths with throughout his years of criminal activity. In exchange for his safety, Red offers his “blacklist” of criminals in the interest of eliminating these corrupt individuals.
