What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, The Blacklist stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Kattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison, Mozhan Marnò, and Hisham Tawfiq. The crime drama centers on one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, Raymond “Red” Reddington (Spader). He offers to help the authorities, if rookie agent Elizabeth Keen (Boone) partners with him. In season five, Red is in the process of rebuilding his criminal empire with her at his side. Although she’s still working for the Feds, Liz finds the idea of indulging her criminal side rather tempting.

Once upon a time, The Blacklist was a breakout drama on the Peacock Network. Since then, the ratings have really dropped, but it was renewed for a fifth installment. Meanwhile, its spin-off, The Blacklist: Redemption was cancelled after just one season. The ratings have remained pretty steady for this show so I believe The Blacklist will be renewed for season six. I’ll keep a hungry eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any cancellation and renewal news, regarding The Blacklist.

What do you think? Do you still enjoy The Blacklist TV series? Should NBC cancel or renew this TV show for season six?
Please renew ! The Blacklist is the main reason I got Netflix, so I could see episodes I missed, which NBC does not have on demand.
Are you serious? I don’t care about the 18-49 demographic. I’m much more interested in programming that is a cut above another torture season of a group of idiots living together in a 24/7 home or any further Survivor episodes. Let’s aim for programming with a bit of an interest for those with a functioning brain cell.
Please renew The Blacklist…best series on tv and the only thing to watch on Friday nite!!
Love Blacklist, please renew
The Black list is by far one of the most interesting shows on television today. It would be a horrible executive decision to cancel. you rely to much on a small amount of information to base your decisions.
The Black List is one of the best shows on TV. Should definitely be renewed. The last season wasn’t as good as the others — maybe they had new writers, but this season so far is very good. Hope it will continue.
The Black list is the ONLY INTELLIGENT SHOW ON TV !!!!! I LOVE IT !. PLEASE RENEW!!
