The Blacklist Season 8: Release Date
Like the rest of the filming industry, The Blacklist was also affected by the coronavirus crisis. The shooting location being New York did not help either, as it is one of the most affected areas. However, the fans could take a chill pill as their favorite show is now set to premiere its eighth season this year on 13 November 2020. For more such articles and further updates, stay tuned!
The Blacklist is no exception in terms of disrupted production due to COVID-19, just like the rest of the industry. The fact that the shooting location of the series is New York, which is one of the worst affected states, did not help either. According to some reports, the filming of season 8 began in mid-September and is listed to start rolling out the new episodes somewhere in the mid-fall season. The Blacklist season 8 does have a tentative return date that is November 13, 2020. You must know that this tentative date is for the premiere on NBC.
Talking about when season 8 of The Blacklist will drop on Netflix, it is still guesswork, as the streamer has not announced an official date so far. By studying the pattern of how every season of The Blacklist has arrived like clockwork each September on Netflix, we should expect season 8 to arrive on Netflix in September 2021.
The Blacklist Season 8: Characters and Cast
This television series includes an amazing and worldly known cast, who are all known for their extraordinary performances in their previous works. This explains the huge worldwide fan following of the series.
The cast members in the lead roles include James Spader as Raymond Reddington, Ryan Eggold as Tom Keen, Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen, Parminder Nagra as Meera Malik, and Diego Klattenhoff as Donald Ressler.
The cast members in the other supporting roles include Harry Lennix as Harold Cooper, Hisham Tawfiq as Dembe Zuma, Mozhan Marnò as Samar Navabi, and Laura Sohn as Alina Park. The whole cast has performed remarkably well in their roles in the previous seven seasons, and we are expecting the same in the eighth season.
Possible Plot of Season 8
The story for the next season is very tricky to guess as to the plot of the season as the series is full of twists. We might also get more of Red’s history and his motive for coming into Kiz’s life. The mystery might expand due to the return of a key character Dembe, Red’s close friend. But the logic of the plot is going to be the same and the plot is going to be as thrilling as ever.
While chatting about Red and Liz’s relationship in an interview, the creator, Bokenkamp said: “Sometimes Red and Liz are close, the other times they are emotionally far apart, but for the time being, Liz is a step ahead of Red and trying to take things slowly. She doesn’t want to confront him because she knows how Red is, and she is not going to get any answers.” This statement directs towards the fact that season 8 could be a little more about Red and Liz and how they keep up with their relationship.
We are expecting the story of season 8 to be full of twists and turns, but one thing is for sure that the series’ inner logic will remain the same for the viewers.
