The Blacklist stars James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, one of the FBI’s most wanted who agrees to help the authorities if he works with agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison, Mozhan Marno and Hisham Tawfiq also star. Last week, we reported NBC has ordered a spin-off series, The Blacklist: Redemption.
Discussing season four, Bokenkamp said fans can expect Red to be at the top of his game:
Look, that’s what’s so exciting to me about this next season. I feel like — at the end of season three — we landed on a really great engine driving us forward, and I think we have a similar engine here. The entire team is splintered, not just physically, but emotionally. The one person that Red cares about in this world is now missing and in the hands of his enemy. It’s gonna be really exciting to spin those in the room this year. As for Red, rest assured, he will be on fire.”
He also said next season will be a “roller coaster”:
I think the decision Liz made to fake her death will have significant impacts, not only with Red, but with the entire team! How much of a betrayal was this? How understanding will the others be? I think there is a lot of fertile material there, story wise, and that’s going to be a big part of Season 4. You think this was a roller coaster ride? Just wait.”
