In Germany, Netflix is allowed to start a new season “The Blacklist’ always release one month after the end of the US broadcast of the complete season. As is well known, the series runs weekly on TV in the USA, and in Germany all episodes are available on Netflix at once. So we could already predict a year ago that the ninth season of “The Blacklist“If US TV ends as scheduled in May 2022, it will then land on Netflix in June 2022 – and that’s exactly how it happened.
Yet for the tenth season of “The Blacklist’ It’s not that easy to predict and we can’t promise you that it will come out on Netflix in June 2023. Because it might take longer.
The reason: US broadcaster NBC announced that “The Blacklist – Season 10” will not start on the regular autumn date at the end of September / beginning of October. The tenth season will not be continued until the so-called mid-season in January 2023. Despite this, the plan is to produce a full season of 22 episodes.
You can’t just say: The season starts a good three months later, so it ends three months later, so the Netflix date is three months later. No, there is even hope that the season will still come to Netflix in June 2023.
Because a fall start is usually associated with a longer break around Christmas and the turn of the year. In addition, there have always been short breaks for events such as live sports broadcasts in the past. If you plan to avoid a single such break, and maybe double-tap episodes every now and then, it’s possible to air a full season from January through May.
In the sixth season of “The Blacklist’ This was exceptionally the case. There wasn’t a single break. In addition, two episodes were shown consecutively on one evening. It is possible that the tenth season will be similar. This is also supported by the fact that the classic US TV networks, which are financed through advertising revenue, normally want to complete their new series seasons by spring, before there is a summer break.
The US broadcaster NBC has not yet made any statements about this. In addition, of course, there remains another uncertainty that each season of “The Blacklist” accompanied. Since this is a series that is only ever produced with a lead-in of a few episodes, there’s always the option to pull the plug midway through and cancel the series for the time being.
Because of all of this, we’re hoping that Season 10 “The Blacklist’ will end up on Netflix in June 2023, despite the later US launch. However, there is a risk that it will be a little later in 2023 and we will have to wait longer.
Meanwhile, it is certain that the tenth season of “The Blacklist’ will begin under completely different circumstances. Because now the Blacklisters set out to hunt down Raymond Reddington (James Spader)…
Warning: SPOILERS for the end of season 9 follow
Toward the end of Season 9, we learn that Marvin Gerard (Fisher Stevens) is the mastermind behind all of Red and the Task Force’s recent troubles. But even after he is exposed, the former lawyer and loyal advisor to Reddington still has an ace up his sleeve:
The Chinese spy Wujing (Chin Han), who was one of the very first blacklisters (in the third episode of the first season) learns from Marvin how he was blown in the first place: Because Raymond Reddington and the FBI were working together. He’s out for revenge – and he’s been given a list for it. On this are numerous other blacklisters, which he will now recruit to hunt down and eliminate Red together.
Wujing could now be a very special adversary for season ten – not only because he knows about Red’s work with the FBI (he’s not the first), but because he has an entire arsenal of blacklisters to back him up. It’s not just Wujing, but an entire alliance that is now specifically hunting Red. And we know that no run-of-the-mill criminals end up on the blacklist. They are all particularly exceptional criminal geniuses in their fields. There should be a reunion with some of them in the tenth season.
