The Blacklist Renewed for Eighth Season
“Congratulations to our incredible cast, producers and crew, all of whom continue to reach excellence week in and week out,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue Red and Liz’s story into season eight.”
The Blacklist has been a NBC staple over the years and of course we love it because of the great fan community we all partake in each and every week. It is because you all keep coming back season after season, story after story, Liz loyalty change after Liz loyalty change that we are getting another season of our beloved show (The lucrative Netflix deal for Sony doesn’t hurt either). Currently working on their 150th episode of the season, the cast and crew gathered to celebrate the achievement on the set in New York where the powers that be at NBC broke the news we all love to hear, The Blacklist Renewed.
