The audience erupted in applause when he made his statement. It’s easy to see why the news was met with such enthusiasm.
During the show’s ninth season, it attracted a total of 22 million viewers across all platforms, conventional and digital (9th overall). Live and same-day average viewership has increased by 200 percent. Also, it’s one of the most popular television shows in the country.

Blacklist Season 10: Release Date
Dramatic crime thrillers as of now, there is a ninth season of the television show. Continuing the gripping and baffling TV series. The detective’s psychological thriller with the criminal underworld is going to go on for a long time.
A release date for the 10th season has not yet been declared by the network or production team, however, it is expected to be released on July 15, 2022.
Our only concern is that it will be released soon, regardless of when Season 9 ends or how long it takes. We’re crossing our fingers that the wait will be worthwhile!
How Did the Fans Respond to This News?
The renewal news has elicited a mixed response, as is typical of today’s television news. It’s no secret that NBC’s The Blacklist has been a top-notch show. As a result, the show’s public image has been skewed in recent years.
Elizabeth Keen’s character, Megan Boone’s Elizabeth Keen, had been the subject of much fan speculation for several seasons. Some fans of The Blacklist are relieved that Boone has departed the show, while others feel that the program’s chemistry is missing without her.
He remains an excellent lead actor, and his performance is what keeps the show going for many of its viewers. Fans, on the other hand, would desire certain answers to the mystery surrounding his character’s identity, even if it means the end of the show.
An anonymous Deadline commenter wrote, “Loved this show for so long but I had to quit watching this season.” Others expressed disappointment that the show would not be renewed.
NBC earns a lot of money off of it, but the show was over for me the moment Megan Boone walked out the door. When she and James Spader were together, this show was truly fantastic. Then there is the fact that they have killed off a lot of good people. Know when to leave a party like This Is Us.”
