The Blacklist season 5 episode 9 return date for James Spader, cast

The Blacklist logo any seasonInterested in learning The Blacklist season 5 episode 9 return date before tonight’s fall finale airs? We’re happy to help!

Recently, NBC confirmed their winter premiere dates for many of their various shows, and when it comes to the James Spader – Megan Boone drama they made it clear that you won’t be waiting all that long into the new year. The Blacklist season 5 episode 9 return date is, (as of this writing) Wednesday, January 3 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Note that programming can change, but signs point to this date sticking for many reasons.

This season (perhaps more so than any other) NBC is locked in to some of their programming for their various shows. They have the Winter Olympics coming up in February, and that means that all of their shows are going to be going on a hiatus for a little while. When The Blacklist comes back on the air you’re going to have a run of new episodes for around five weeks, and then the show will go off the air again until after the Olympics are over.

While this may be somewhat frustrating for some people out there to have these sort of long breaks, it is probably rather beneficial for some of the showrunners for a few different reasons. For example, it offers them a chance to tell a little more of a serialized story with one episode bleeding directly into the next. This is something that is a little harder if you’re getting more of an off-and-on schedule with random breaks in the middle of the story.

Hopefully, everyone out there who loves the show continues to watch it live! As of right now we feel reasonably confident that there will be a sixth season for The Blacklist, but nothing is going to be assured until NBC confirms a renewal. If the numbers dip for whatever reason in the new year anything could happen.
