Here’s some good news for fans of the NBC drama ‘The Blacklist.’ The series starring legend James Spader will return for a second season!
‘The Blacklist’ revolves around Spader’s criminal mastermind Raymond “Red” Reddington, Megan Boone’s FBI Agent Elizabeth “Lizzie” Keen, Diego Klattenhoff’s rough and tough Donald Ressler, and many, many other talents.
Since Episode 1, the series has been doing wonders for the network, especially in ratings, so it’s no surprise ‘The Blacklist’ will come back for a second run with 22 episodes. The series even earned an early full-season order in October (after just two episodes!). Who doesn’t love watching Spader portray Red every week?
“The success of ‘The Blacklist’ demonstrates that inspired storytelling is alive and well in broadcast television, and I’m impressed on a daily basis by this creative team’s imagination and the extent to which they will go to capture this grand vision on film,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt said. “With gratitude to both our partners at Sony Pictures Television and our NBC development executives who took a great script and shepherded it into a great series, I hope that Red Reddington never runs out of names to bring down on his list!”
Last night, ‘The Blacklist’s fall finale aired, but no worries because the series will return in January with three new episodes beginning Jan. 13.
