The direction, cinematography, and cast have done a tremendous job in keeping the audience hooked even now after so many years.
It is very evident that people love this show even now as much as they did when it was originally launched. Well the huge question is will this show return for a season 8? Well if you love this show you are going to hear the just best news and the news is, this show has been renewed for another segment in the series.
I know we all are excited to hear this news we have a lot of questions and we want to know who will be back on the show? and what will be the plot? Well let’s get into all the details and find out. (check: ‘Star Wars’ The Mandalorian Season 2.)
The Blacklist Season 8 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Unlike web series, television series tend to come back after a few months. The part 2 of the seventh season aired in April 2020. But, it premiered in October 2019. Except for the sixth installment which premiered in January, The Blacklist has always returned in either September (four times) or October (twice) in the USA.
So we guess we might be able to watch season 8 in the beginning of October 2020 or late September 2020. However, since by now, we all know productions are at halt due to major lockdowns we might see a delay in the release date of The Blacklist season 8. (check: How to change name on Instagram more than twice?.)
The lockdown also affected the ending of the seventh installment as they had to make some changes so that they could air the final episode. Looking at this we can already predict that the 8th installment will definitely be delayed. We will have to wait for an announcement for season 8’s release date.
Who is in the season 8 cast of The Blacklist?
Well we are expecting the heartthrob James Spader to come back as ‘Red’ Reddington. Along with him, we might see Megan Boone as Liz Keen, Diego Klattenhoff and Harry Lennix as Donald Ressler and Harold Cooper. We don’t know if Katarina Rostova will come back in season 8 as she was the villain in the last installment. Will Laila Robins in the upcoming series of the Blacklist? We will have to wait to see what’s next for us.
What is the plot of The Blacklist season 8?
At this point in time, a plot for the next season has not been revealed. We can always guess what the plot will be like in the next installment based on the previous installment. We know that season 7 episode 19 was not supposed to be the season’s finale but somehow the creators made it work and gave a proper ending.
They added animated elements to bring a perfect ending without any further delay. Despite all this and the changes they made in the end they gave us a good cliffhanger which now has us wanting more and more. They do know how to keep us hooked and manage to not disappoint us even now.
(WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD)
We saw that Dom started gaining consciousness again, Brian Dennehy who played Dom’s character passed away last month. We think we will be seeing a more animated version of Dom maybe. Only time will tell. (check: HBO’s Watchmen season 2.)
Liz and Red ended on a complicated term. Even when Red had done so much for Liz only to see that she turns him down again. She also told Dom she is on her mother’s side now. We know Katarina was the one who almost killed Dom. This could mean more complications and maybe some new twists along the way.
Whatever they do we cannot wait to see them back on screen again. They gave us the ultimate cliffhanger making us wanting more and more. Also, kudos to the creators for making an animated element and also not letting us get disappointed despite of that.
When and Where to watch The Blacklist season 8 trailer?
The last season’s trailer was dropped just one month before the actual release of the installment. So, we will have to wait for a long time to catch the promo. Since the seventh installment just ended and the shooting for The Blacklist season 8 has not begun so the trailer for it is not out as of now. We might see some sneak peeks soon when the shooting begins or maybe they will release an animated trailer. We don’t know they for sure know how to keep us hooked.
