The NBC drama was picked up for another season.
The freshman drama received the season pick up after NBC ended the drama’s fall finale. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bob Greenblatt, the NBC chairman said that, “The success of The Blacklist demonstrates that inspired storytelling is alive and well in broadcast television, and I’m impressed on a daily basis by this creative team’s imagination and the extent to which they will go to capture this grand vision on film.”
The Blacklist has been a success for the network and it is a top TV drama and third-best-performer after The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family.
Jennifer Salke, the NBC president added that, “We are very proud of the creative achievements of The Blacklist, starting with creator Jon Bokenkamp and his incredible producing partners John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox and Michael Watkins. Our hats are off to them and to everyone in our dream cast — starting with the incomparable James Spader and Megan Boone — and our maverick pilot director, Joe Carnahan, and all of the gifted writers, producers, and directors who bring this cinematic show to life each week.”
The Blacklist is the first NBC fall series to get a second season order and the finale averaged 3.5 adults rating. The show will continue in January and it will air three weeks before the Olympics.
