The Blacklist Season 8 – The Blacklist is all set to return with season eight. The Blacklist is packed with mysteries, thriller, crime, fast-paced direction, and excellent casting. It focuses on the shady mastermind Raymond ‘Red’ Teddington and Elizabeth Keen catching criminals.
Jon Bokenkamp’s crime-drama web television series premiered on NBC on 23 September 2013. Good news for Blacklist’s fans is that NBC renewed Season 8 in February 2020. It will be hitting the screens any time soon.
Here’s everything you need to know about it.
When is The Blacklist Season 8 coming?
There has been no announcement regarding the release date of season eight. Considering the previous season’s release pattern, we can expect the new season to appear by the end of 2020.
But the release date can be shifted due to the ongoing global pandemic. Chances are very less that creators will start production work on the next season. Its release is entirely dependent on whenever it is safe for the team to start the filming again.
Who will be starring in The Blacklist Season 8?
We may expect the return of James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen, Diego Klattenhoff as Donald Ressler, Harry Lennix as Harold Cooper, Hishaam Tawifq as Dembe Zuma, and Megan Boone as Liz Keen.
It is unclear whether the character of Dom is going to appear in the eighth season after the sad demise of Brian Dennehy.
What will happen in The Blacklist Season 8?
Covid-19 hit this series badly. Brian Dennehy, who was playing the role of Dom passed away after he was diagnosed with Covid-19. In the last season, Dom was seen regaining his consciousness but it seems like we are not going to see Dom in the new season.
Season 8 will pick up from a big twist with Liz switching her allegiances from Red to Katarina Rostova.
