In some exciting news for fans, The Blacklist season 10 marks 10 years of partnership between fans and show.  Sadly, the tenth season also marks the series' end as it has been announced that the last episode in 2023 will be the series finale. 

It was nearly a decade ago when viewers found themselves captivated by the exploits and twisted tales of criminal mastermind Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader). Not only did his work with members of the FBI provide weekly suspense on whether or not they’d catch the villain, but the audience became deeply interested in trying to determine Red’s true motives with being cooperative with the authorities (as he always has an ulterior motive). His complicated family tree and sordid romantic past also never disappoint as a source of intrigue. 

Now as the show heads into its final moments, fans naturally want to know how this antihero's journey all ends. Well, here’s everything we know about The Blacklist season 10.  

The Blacklist season 10 release date

The Blacklist returns for season 10 in the US on Sunday, February 26, 2023, at 10 pm ET/PT on NBC. The premiere episode becomes available to stream the next day over on Peacock

To date, we don’t have information on when season 10 will debut in the UK. However, seasons 1-9 are currently available via Sky TV

The Blacklist season 10 trailer

After ten seasons, it looks like Reddington's last hoorah is going be of epic dramatic proportions. We can't say we expected anything less. Check out the trailer below. 

The Blacklist season 10 cast

The Blacklist continues to be fronted by three-time Emmy winner James Spader. Spader has been a part of some critically-acclaimed shows over the course of his career including Boston Legal, The Practice and The Office. He’s also been spotted in Lincoln and voiced Ultron in the blockbuster hit, Avengers: Age of Ultron

Returning for season 10 alongside Spader are Diego Klattenhoff (Homeland), Hisham Tawfiq (Harlem) and Harry Lennix (Billions). Also, be on the lookout for new cast member Anya Banerjee (Auckward Love) who plays Siya Malik. For those that have been watching the series since season 1, the name Malik should sound familiar. Siya is actually the daughter of assassinated agent Meera Malik (Parminder Nagra).

The Blacklist season 10 plot

We’re still waiting for an official synopsis of the season; however, based on how season 9 ended, there is a lot to look forward to. First and foremost, Number 84 on Red’s list has recently escaped prison and is telling other criminals on the blacklist that Red is an FBI informant. It’s safe to say that the man with a thousand hats is going to go from being the hunter to the hunted. People in his underworld tend not to like a snitch, yet love revenge. 

In some good news for Raymond, he managed to track down Liz’s killer by the end of last season so at least he doesn’t have that lingering over his head.
