Back in May, the American crime thriller, The Blacklist, was renewed for a sixth season. The show has done exceptionally well so far and has delivered consistency in each of its five seasons so far. We’re now heading towards the sixth season, and from what we’ve heard, it is going to have a total of 22 episodes, which means we have a lot to look forward to.
In this post, I’ll be talking about everything that we know about The Blacklist Season 6 so far. Make sure that you’re caught up to the series before we begin this post because I will be spoiling you. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started.
The fifth season of the series ended on a high, with a cliffhanger that has left the fans wondering what’s going to happen next. The creator of the series recently talked about it in a post, and he said:
“What this reveal does and what’s exciting about season six is it snaps into focus so many of the tools that Elizabeth Keen has been acquiring over the past five years. Not only from Reddington, who she certainly has been influenced by and learned from but also from Tom Keen, her husband who was also not only an impostor but a spy.”
“What she’s learned from both of these men in her life will influence how she handles this truth and what she does to move forward. I wouldn’t expect it to be super squeaky clean. She has some skills that are a little bit on the dark side. That excites me. That’s a very interesting character to explore and to follow into the next season.”
The Blacklist Season 6 Cast And Release Date
We’re already excited for the sixth season of The Blacklist. As far as the cast for the show goes, we don’t have much information, but here’s a list of the characters who expect to be there when the show returns:
James Spader as Raymond Reddington
Megan Boone as Liz Keen
Diego Klattenhoff as Donald Ressler
Amir Arison as Aram Mojtabai
Harry Lenix as Harrold Cooper
Furthermore, a release date for the show hasn’t been confirmed by NBC yet. It usually comes out in September, but that’s not going to be the cast this year. The show was just confirmed for a sixth season a few months ago. The closest that we think a sixth season of the show will air will be in 2019, preferably towards the fall of the year. If you were expecting the show to be out sooner than that, then you’ll be disappointed with for sure. However, we are confident that the wait will definitely be worth it.
