While the spinoff, Blacklist: Redemption didn’t make it, the original show will be back. The Blacklist Season 5 will definitely happen on NBC in the Fall. The only catch? It’s coming to a new night.
The Blacklist has always aired on Thursday nights at 10, but things will be a little different next time around. The Blacklist Season 5 will move to Wednesdays at 9 pm when it returns in the Fall. And yes, James Spader will be back as Red Reddington. Of course he is, right? He is this show!
We also know (via TV Line) that even though the spinoff didn’t work out, Ryan Eggold will be back in the core cast for the new season.
The Blacklist Season 5 Release Date
22 brand new episodes of The Blacklist Season 5 will begin airing in Fall 2017 on Wednesday, October 4 at 8 PM.
