NBC has renewed “The Blacklist” for Season 4, Variety has confirmed.
Creator Jon Bokenkamp spilled the news on a podcast for the series called “The Blacklist: Exposed.”
“We knew about that a while ago, it’s one of those things that’s hard to keep quiet. But yes, we’re renewed through the fourth season,” Bokenkamp revealed during the interview.
The hit NBC series stars James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, previously one of the FBI’s most wanted criminals, who now helps the Bureau investigate other threats — from mobsters to arms dealers to terrorists — along with partner Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone).
NBC has already renewed “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” for Season 5 and Season 4, respectively, along with freshman hit “Blindspot,” which was the first new show of the year to earn a second season renewal.
“The Blacklist” also stars Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff and Ryan Eggold. Executive producers are Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox and Michael Watkins. “The Blacklist” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
