If you like The Blacklist, there is good news. It was renewed for a seventh season, which will premiere on October 4, 2019, on NBC. For those who do not know, The Blacklist is about Raymond “Red” Reddington, who is played by James Spader. Red is a former U.S. Navy officer who became a high-profile criminal.

Apparently, he had compiled a list of them over the years. His other condition was to work exclusively with Elizabeth Keen, who is a rookie police profiler. Elizabeth Keen is played by Megan Boone.
