Bittersweet News for The Blacklist
Yeah, It’s time to share this bittersweet news: the upcoming milestone 10th season for NBC’s signature drama The Blacklist, which debuts Sunday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, will serve as the show’s final season. The series’ 200th episode will air Sunday, March 19.
In its landmark 10th season, The Blacklist returns as Raymond Reddington (James Spader) confronts unparalleled danger. With Reddington’s covert role as an FBI informant facing exposure, former Blacklisters will unite against him in their lethal desire for revenge – testing Red and the FBI Task Force as never before, which promises even more action, tension, and drama than what the show has us used to.
The Blacklist ended news finds us with mixed feelings. On the one hand, it’s always sad when a show that was part of your life for so many years says goodbye but, on the other hand, we think that it was time for the series to take the step of doing so.
The best thing about this is that the show will say goodbye to the audience with a proper ending. However, we still have a little time to say goodbye to our favorite series, so seeing the trailer for the tenth and final season makes us emotional.

The trailer left us with feelings on the surface. It was a tour of the past with a look toward the future. With The Blacklist we always felt that the story didn’t hold a happy ending for Raymond…but this trailer makes us feel that a happy ending is possible, even if it costs blood, sweat, and tears.
And the first look gives us even more hope…
