The Blacklist Season 10 July 13, 2023 Episodes 21 & 22 Are The Finale. Season 11 Not Happening
Hey, “The Blacklist” fans. We totally hope you guys enjoyed watching the back-to-back episodes 21 and 22 of The Blacklist tonight, especially since those will indeed be the last episodes of The Blacklist that you’ll ever see forever.
Yes, guys. Unfortunately, tonight’s episodes 21 and 22 not only wrapped up the current season 10 of The Blacklist, but it also wrapped up the entire series. So, it’s done for good. There will never be a new season 11.
The folks over at NBC.com confirmed this news in one of their latest articles. They also revealed some reasons why the show ended with this current season 10. So, we’re going to get into all of that in this goodbye article.
NBC talked with Raymond Reddington aka Red star James Spader about why he thinks The Blacklist ended with its 10th season. Apparently, he thought the show would just become unrecognizable if it went beyond season 10 stating, “I think if the show went beyond this year, it would turn into a very different show. I think that the thing that has been nice about this show was that we’ve never really had a really clear paradigm for the show.
Tonally, the show shifts a lot from episode to episode, and I think that even the show has taken strange turns, and I suspect that the show, if it went much further, would just become something that would be less recognizable to me.”
During the Blacklist ending announcement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming’s president of scripted Lisa Katz had some wonderful things to say about The Blacklist show and its staff stating, “It isn’t often that a series resonates so deeply with an audience that it airs for 10 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 huge thank you to our partners at Sony, everyone from the past decade who made this show an integral part of NBC’s storied history and, of course, a special nod to James Spader, whose performance remains nothing short of spectacular.”
The showrunner and executive producer for The Blacklist John Eisendrath also chimed in with some nice words about the show and how it’s been great to work with NBC and Sony. He stated, “After 10 years, hundreds of Blacklist cases, and more than 200 episodes produced, we’re honored to reach our conclusion.
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.”
