Are you having fun watching Blacklist season 8? Well, we have watched four launched episodes of the American drama and they provided us a heavy dose of entertainment. If I’m not wrong then the same must have happened to you. In fact, not only us but also people around the world are loving the series.
You will be amazed after hearing that the series has become the longest-running show on Netflix. Also, it comes at 3rd position when we talk about all NBC’s shows. Only two shows including Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Fire are ahead of this drama.
After almost 8 consecutive successful seasons now fans are questioning whether there can be a ninth season or not? If yes, then what will be The Blacklist Season 9 release date. Not the release date but makers have revealed very big news about the forthcoming season. So, take a look at what they have disclosed –
Has NBC Announced The Blacklist Season 9 Release Date?
On 13th November NBC launched the first episode of the eighth season. But unfortunately, the beginning episode witnessed a massive drop in its ratings in comparison to the last season. But the ratings again lifted when the second episode aired on the 20th of November. But just after that, the creators put a stoppage on the forthcoming episodes for two months.
Fans didn’t welcome this news and they were annoyed by the showrunners for not releasing the remaining episodes. But now they are happy as NBC has again started streaming further episodes of the series. Four episodes have been released so far and many are yet to come. We all know that how popular the show is on Netflix.
The reports of Hollywood reporters suggest that The Blacklist has remained the 9th most viewed series on the platform. Till now its episodes have been viewed more than 14.5 billion times. It has received fabulous 8/10 stars on the IMDb while an 85% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Definitely, these numbers are fantastic and enough for the renewal of any show.
That’s why without hurting the feelings of fans showrunners announced the renewal of the series for one more season. So, the arrival of The Blacklist Season 9 episodes is confirmed. However, showrunners haven’t revealed when the ninth season will release on NBC and Netflix. Also, it would be too early to expect season 9 now as not all the episodes of season 8 episodes have aired yet.
