Chronology
Followed byThe Blacklist: Redemption[b]

The Blacklist is an American crime thriller television series that premiered on NBC on September 23, 2013. The show follows Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader), a former U.S. Navy officer turned high-profile criminal who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades. He tells the FBI that he has a list of the most dangerous criminals in the world which he has compiled over the years, and he is willing to inform on their operations in exchange for immunity from prosecution. Additionally, he insists on working exclusively with rookie FBI criminal profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone).

The series also stars Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Amir Arison, Hisham Tawfiq, and Harry Lennix. The pilot episode was written by Jon Bokenkamp and directed by Joe Carnahan.[1] Executive producers for the series include Bokenkamp (for the first eight seasons), John Eisendrath, and John Davis for Sony Pictures Television, Universal Television, and Davis Entertainment.

Each season has received positive reviews,[2][3] with many critics praising Spader's performance in particular.[4] On January 26, 2021, the series was renewed for a ninth season, which premiered on October 21, 2021.[5][6] On February 22, 2022, the series was renewed for a tenth season.[7]

Premise[edit]

Original storyline (seasons 1–8)[edit]

Raymond "Red" Reddington, an ex-U.S. Naval Intelligence officer who had disappeared twenty years earlier to become one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, surrenders himself to FBI Assistant Director Harold Cooper at the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, D.C. Taken to an FBI "black site," Reddington claims he wishes to help the FBI track down and apprehend the criminals and terrorists he spent the last twenty years associating with: individuals that are so dangerous and devious that the United States government is unaware of their very existence.

He offers Cooper his knowledge and assistance on two conditions: immunity from prosecution, and that he wants to work exclusively with Elizabeth Keen, a rookie profiler newly assigned to Cooper. Keen and Cooper are suspicious of Reddington's interest in her, but he will only say that she is "very special". After Cooper tests Reddington's offer in locating and killing Serbian terrorist Ranko Zamani in the first episode, Reddington reveals that this man was only the first on the "blacklist" of global criminals that he has compiled over his criminal career, and states that he and the FBI have a mutual interest in eliminating them. The mysteries of Reddington's and Liz's lives, and his interest in her, are gradually revealed as the series progresses. With a few exceptions, each episode features one of the global criminals, and Reddington assisting the team tracking and apprehending them. In every such episode, the rank and name or alias of the featured criminal on Red's blacklist is displayed at the close of the opening sequence. However, the more secrets Reddington keeps from Elizabeth, the more people who are close to Liz are killed as the result. With every minute together with Red, Liz becomes more like to him, and, by exposing his secrets, she becomes closer to the showdown with both Reddington and Cooper.

Renewed storyline (season 9 – present)[edit]

When Elizabeth has gone, Cooper's task force broke down and Reddington fled the country. For two years, the deal with Red and the FBI was inactive. However, the world's criminals are still active, evolved in their methods and out for blood. When one of them, American crime lord The Skinner, explodes and nearly kills Dembe Zuma, Red's former associate, who nepotically became an FBI agent, Red is forced to return and help him. At first, Red promises to retire to Cuba once The Skinner is neutralized. However, when Red begins to manage the remains of his empire, he breaks his promise and decides to stay in charge of what he can still control.

Red and Cooper come to an agreement to resume his deal with the FBI and continue giving up global criminals for his "blacklist" in honor of what Elizabeth started. Cooper manages to find the old task force members to create a new division. The secrets Red kept from Liz become irrelevant, and the story now centers on Red, Cooper, and the field agents Liz used to work with. Now, the task force must confront new criminals as well as familiar ones who have returned in order to avenge Red for what he did to them.

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

So, the idea was, 'Well, what would happen if a man like Whitey Bulger turned himself in and said, "I am here. I have some rules that I want you to follow, but if you follow them I will give you the names of people that I have worked with, during the 20 years that I have been a fugitive."'

So, there was a real world influence that affected the shaping of the show that was already being thought about. How can you put someone that you don't trust in the center of a show about trying to find criminals? And here was an example in the real world of just such a person. It was a fortuitous turn of events, where the idea for a show was being considered, and then here comes a real life story that helped give it some shape.

John Eisendrath on conception of The Blacklist, 2013[20]

The first mention of The Blacklist appeared on August 13, 2012, when Jon Bokenkamp came up with the idea of an international crime series with a character based on Keyser Söze,[21] originally introduced to him by his fellow producer, Davis Entertainmant’s John Fox.[22] The same day, it was revealed that NBC had bought rights for the series from Sony.[21] John Eisendrath from Universal Television, John Davis and Fox have already signed a contract as executive producers.[21] NBC ordered a pilot for the series on January 22, 2013, along with three other dramas.[23] It was written by Bokenkamp and directed by Joe Carnahan, as was disclosed on March 13, 2013.[24] On May 10, the series was picked up by NBC for the 2013-14 television season.[25] During an NBC upfront presentation in May 2013, it was announced that The Blacklist was NBC's highest-testing drama in 10 years.[26] The official trailer for the series was released on May 12, 2013.[27] Originally, a 13-episode first season was planned, but, after the premiere grossed 12.3 million viewers,[28] NBC decided to bring episode count to 22, ordering nine additional episodes on October 4, 2013.[29]

Since then, every season of The Blacklist ordered had 22 episodes. On December 3, 2013, NBC renewed the series for a second season.[30][31] On February 5, 2015 the series was renewed for a third season, along with four other dramas.[32] On December 5, 2015, the series was renewed for a fourth season.[33][34] On May 11, 2017, the series was renewed for a fifth season,[35] premiering a week earlier than planned.[36] The sixth season renewal was announced on May 12, 2018,[37] and premiered with a double episode on January 3, 2019,[38] which was the first time for the series to be held for midseason.

The series was renewed for a seventh season on March 11, 2019,[39] and then received a renewal for an eighth season on February 2, 2020.[40] However, the production suffered from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic while filming the final episodes; in March 2020, the production for the show was shut down,[41] with 3.5 episodes left unproduced.[42] Then, it was announced that, instead of ending the season with the last live-action episode produced, a nineteenth half-animated episode would be made using the filmed live-action material and an animation squad of Proof visual effects company.[43] It aired on May 15, 2020.

Filming for the eighth season resumed in live-action with taking extra Covid-19 precautions.[44] The eighth season premiered November 13, 2020. On January 26, 2021, the series was renewed for a ninth season.[5] The series was renewed for a tenth season on February 22, 2022, which, unlike the previous renewals, was first announced by James Spader during his appearance on The Tonight Show, not by a press release.[44]

The Blacklist received a panel twice on San Diego Comic-Con. The panel first appeared before the show's debut, on July 18, 2013, and during remote special convention on July 23, 2020.[45][46] On May 11, 2014, NBC applied the series for a 2015 post–Super Bowl timeslot.[47]

All four showrunners have signed a deal with Sony before the premiere; first, John Eisendrath on June 7, 2013,[48] then, Jon Bokenkamp on July 16,[49] and both John Davis and John Fox on July 29.[50] On June 24, 2021, a day after the finale of season 8 was aired, Jon Bokenkamp revealed that he will not return for future seasons. That way, John Eisendrath took over the lead.[51] On March 14, 2022, Eisendrath prolonged his deal with Universal Television for three additional years.[52]

Michael Watkins, who served as co-executive producer of the series from season 1, was fired in February 2018 over alleged harassment involving a camera assistant. He claimed that there was no reason for firing him and blamed his colleague, Laura A. Benson, for using him as a way to rise in her career. He than sued Sony, Laura Benson and another his colleague, Bill Roe, a year later.[53]

Casting[edit]

Eisendrath said that the casting process was difficult.[20] In February 2013, NBC offered Kiefer Sutherland the lead role of Raymond Reddington.[54] He and Bokenkamp called James Spader to see if he would be interested in the role of Reddington;[20] they felt confident in his understanding of the character and cast him three days before filming began.[20]

Megan Boone took a week to prepare for her audition as FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen,[55] and she was called back for multiple auditions.[55] In March 2013, Deadline Hollywood reported that she accepted the role as the female lead in the series.[56] In June 2021, it was revealed that Megan Boone would not be returning for the ninth season of the series. [57]

On March 11, 2013, Ryan Eggold accepted the role of Tom Keen, an enigmatic husband of Elizabeth, previously working for Reddington as a spy.[24] In the middle of season 4, Eggold left the series to star in The Blacklist: Redemption, a new spin-off centered on his character, but returned later this season following the cancellation of Redemption.[58] He ultimately gave up his role the next season.[59] In a 2021 interview, he spoke about an option to return to the series, perhaps as a guest star, and assumed it being not totally out of the realm of possibility.[60]

On March 13, 2013, Diego Klattenhoff joined the series as Donald Ressler, a law-abiding field agent working with Cooper’s task force.[61]

The next day, on March 14 2013, Harry Lennix was cast as Harold Cooper, the leader of a newly formed task force, which cooperates with Reddington. Lennix has been starring in each season of the series, and he is willing to continue; in an interview with Collider, he told that he may go on until a suggested 20th season, like his most favourite TV show, Gunsmoke.[62]

On July 25, 2013, Parminder Nagra joined the cast as Meera Malik, a professional field agent, who decides to help Elizabeth to settle into her new job.[63] However, she was written out of the series after the first season.[64]

On October 8, 2014, Amir Arison was promoted to a recurring role as Aram Mojtabai, a quirky technician and a professional computer master[65] after he showed some extraordinary on-the-move, improvised skills in his debut episode.[66] He was promoted to series regular on May 20, 2014.[67] After the finale of season 9, Arison departed the series, but return appearances were left possible. [68]

Hisham Tawfiq’s appearance as Dembe Zuma was also presumed as a one-shot deal,[69] but he managed to prolong his contract first as recurring for the first two seasons, and, on March 31, 2015, earned a place in the main cast.[70] He has never left then, appearing in every single episode.

Mozhan Marnò joined the cast on July 29, 2014, as Samar Navabi, a field professional agent recruited by the task force Director, originally working for Mossad, who develops relationships with Aram.[71] She officially confirmed her departure on March 29, 2019, in the middle of the sixth season.[72] She returned once, in 2022’s ninth season.[73]

On May 7, 2020, Laura Sohn was promoted to series regular as Alina Park, another new field agent taken into the Cooper’s task force, also previously recurring in seventh season.[74] She departed after the series' ninth season.[68]

Filming locations and technique[edit]

Despite being set in Washington, D.C., the series is mainly filmed in Montreal, Quebec and surrounding suburbs, and the same Manhattan studio where Law & Order was filmed for 20 years.[75] Producer Richard Heus said they chose to film specific Washington, D.C., locations for the series, including the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the National Mall, because they were "iconic American locations."[76]

The series is filmed in 4K using Sony PMW-F55 cameras that are adapted to use Panavision lenses.[77] It is edited using Avid Media Composer, and editor Christopher Brookshire says the show has "a very distinctive look and pace."[78] An average of three cameras are used at one time, but as many as six cameras are sometimes recording.[79]

Notable guest appearances[edit]

The show boasts a host of notable actors in key guest appearances, including among others Isabella Rossellini, Justin Kirk, Robert Sean Leonard, Ron Perlman, Dianne Wiest, Nathan Lane, Al Roker, Jennifer Ehle, Joely Richardson, Linus Roache, Leslie Jones, Mark Ivanir, John Waters, John Glover, Brent Spiner, Huey Lewis and Campbell Scott, as well as others in recurring roles, including Brian Dennehy, Alan Alda, Mary-Louise Parker, Famke Janssen, David Strathairn, Paul Reubens, Rachel Brosnahan, Christine Lahti, Christopher Lambert and Diany Rodriguez.[80][81][82][83][84][85][86][87]

Netflix deal[edit]

In the United States and Canada, the eighth and latest season debuted on October 6, 2021, prior to the premiere of season 9.[89] In DACH countries and Luxembourg, the ninth season was released on June 26, 2022.[90] In the Netherlands, the eighth season was released on March 13, 2022.[91] In Scandinavian countries, the eighth season was released on November 14, 2021,[92] along with Spain.[93] In Latin America, the premiere date of season 8 was scheduled on July 18, 2021, but was initially changed to June 1, 2022.[94] In France and the majority of French-speaking countries in Africa, the latest season premiered is season 7, which arrived at Netflix on October 4, 2021.[95]

Some countries with domestic language voiceover do not violate any broadcaster rights and therefore are allowed to release new episodes simultaneously with NBC. For season 9, this countries included India, Israel, South Korea, Hungary, Poland, Russia[c], Portugal, Slovakia and Romania.[89] Netflix also has streaming rights for all 9 seasons in Greece[96] and Australia.[97]

The series performs well at Netflix. In almost every country new seasons score a place in the local Top 10 and usually remain there for more than a week. The eighth and ninth seasons have most notable performance in Romania, Greece and DACH countries.[98]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

The first season of The Blacklist received strong reviews from television critics. On Metacritic, the first season has a score of 74 out of 100, based on 31 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews."[120] The consensus reads, "James Spader is riveting as a criminal-turned-informant, and his presence goes a long way toward making this twisty but occasionally implausible crime procedural compelling."[121] The second season received a rating of 80%, based on 15 reviews, with an average score of 7.77/10. The consensus reads, "Though The Blacklist flirts with narrative overload, it's held together by James Spader's scenery-eating performance and wildly entertaining action."[122] The third season received a rating of 93%, based on 14 reviews, with an average score of 7.41/10. The consensus reads, "The Blacklist is back in top form with fresh dangers that put Red on the ropes while giving James Spader room to shine."[123] The fourth season received a rating of 88%, based on eight reviews, with an average score of 7/10. The consensus is "Propelled by the sheer force of James Spader's performance (and a pretty killer soundtrack), The Blacklist's fourth season ups the ante and then some."[124] The fifth season received a rating of 100%, based on five reviews, with an average score of 8.5/10.[125] The sixth season also received a rating of 100%, based on five reviews, but with an average score of 9.3/10.[126] The seventh season has not received enough ratings to calculate a score,[127] as well as the eighth season.[128]

David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle said about the pilot, "You think you know this situation and how it will turn out, but there are surprising, yet entirely credible, twists throughout Monday's episode."[2] Robert Bianco of USA Today said, "The Blacklist is a solid weekly crime show built around a genuine TV star. That's the kind of series the networks have to be able to pull off to survive. And with Spader in command, odds are NBC will."[129] Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter praised both Spader's performance and the procedural elements of the show, writing "there's an overarching element to the premise as well that makes it intriguing without making it overly complicated."[130]

Other media[edit]

Comics[edit]

Titan Books released an official comic book series based on the series, written by Nicole Phillips and drawn by Beni Lobel. The series' crew is working in the project as well.

Editor David Leach told The Hollywood Reporter that the comic is "a true extension of the television series" giving "new dimensions of the characters that have captured the audiences worldwide". The series will open with a six-issue story arc, which will be "a journey deep into the dark world of international espionage, conspiracies and intrigue on a global scale".

Issue #1 was launched July 22, 2015, in both comic book and digital stores.[154]

Games[edit]

The mobile game The Blacklist: Conspiracy was released on June 23, 2016, by Gameloft for Android, iOS, and Windows devices.[155] As a member of the task force, the player can interact with Reddington, Cooper and other members, and interrogate potential suspects and witnesses. The game mainly consists of searching for missing items in different environments, as well as mini games to further the investigations. Players can also make decisions that alter the route of the story.[156]

Spin-off[edit]

In March 2016, NBC began developing a spin-off series created by Bokenkamp and Eisendrath, who would also serve as executive producers with Davis and Fox. The project was set to star Famke Janssen as Susan "Scottie" Hargrave (formerly Halsted) and Eggold, in his role as Tom Keen, as well as Edi Gathegi reprising his role as Matias Solomon. Tawny Cypress was cast as Nez Rowan, a character already recurring during the third season.[157] Hargrave first appeared on The Blacklist episode "Susan Hargrave", with "Alexander Kirk" serving as a backdoor pilot for the potential series. That episode was written by Bokenkamp and Eisendrath and directed by Michael Dinner.[158] On May 14, 2016, a pilot for the series, The Blacklist: Redemption, was ordered.[159] The series was canceled after one season.[160] Eggold continued his role on the fifth season of The Blacklist, but left after ten episodes.[58]
