“The Blacklist” is getting a Season 2.
NBC announced on Tuesday that the drama, starring James Spader, will be back for a full, 22-episode season next year.
“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,” Robert Greenblatt Chairman, NBC Entertainment said in a statement. “With gratitude to both our partners at Sony Pictures Television and our NBC development executives who took a great script and shepherded it into a great series, I hope that Red Reddington never runs out of names to bring down on his list!”
In the series, James stars as Red, a master criminal who is working with the FBI, and in particular, a young profiler named Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), to take down the criminals the government doesn’t know about.
