What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, The Blacklist stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Amir Arison, Hisham Tawfiq and Harry Lennix. The crime drama centers on one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, Raymond “Red” Reddington (Spader), who offers to help the authorities if a specific rookie agent, Elizabeth Keen (Boone), partners with him. In season seven, Red finds himself alone in hostile territory, surrounded by old enemies and possibly new allies. He must stay one step ahead of the Blacklist’s most dangerous criminal, who will stop at nothing to unearth the very truth Red wants no one to know about. To find it, Katarina will insinuate herself into Liz’s life, who has finally reunited with her daughter Agnes. Katarina’s presence will bring danger to Liz’s doorstep and forever alter her relationship with Red.
Season Seven Ratings
The seventh season of The Blacklist averaged a 0.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.26 million viewers. Compared to season six, that’s down by 3% in the demo and up by 7% in viewership. Find out how The Blacklist stacks up against other NBC TV shows.
Will NBC cancel or renew The Blacklist for season eight? The ratings continue to sink but I suspect it will still be renewed — as long as Spader wants to continue. When it’s time to end the show, I think NBC will renew the series and announce it as a final season. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments.
