The Blacklist premiered season 8 last November 2020 through NBC, after several months on hiatus that kept fans in a state of stress and anxiety.
After airing 2 episodes after the premiere, The Blacklist went on hiatus up until last week when it returned with episode 3 of the eighth installation.
Now, the broadcast network NBC revealed Tuesday that it made the decision to renew its hit crime drama for a ninth season.
Remember that for months, the report that The Blacklist would pertain to an end with season 8 echoed among fans who stayed concerned.
And there are enough reasons for NBC to decide to renew the crime drama of Raymond “Red” Reddington (Jame Spader) and Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone) for a ninth installation.
As fans understand, The Blacklist is one of the most successful police procedural today that has gotten a large fan base around the world. The series is relayed by its initial house NBC, and is readily available on the Netflix streaming platform.
It is important to note that with the broadcast of the first episode of season 8 on November 13, The Blacklist reached 7.5 million audiences in the overall audience measurement.
Likewise, throughout the broadcast of season 7 in between 2019-2020, The Blacklist reached nearly 39 million audiences in total on linear and digital platforms.
NBC notes that The Blacklist series draws a first-class audience, ranking as the No. 2 television drama during the 2019-20 season. These being the primary reasons that inspired NBC to restore the series for a ninth installation.
