The Blacklist season 6, Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved until midseason

The Blacklist logo any seasonWhile we’d love to see both The Blacklist season 6 and Brooklyn Nine-Nine sooner rather than later, unfortunately, you’re going to be forced to wait a while on both of them.

This morning, it was announced that both the James Spader series and also the newly-acquired Andy Samberg series are going to be each on hold until at least January, if not later. For The Blacklist in particular, it is going to be airing on Friday nights at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. That’s not exactly a timeslot that enthuses us, largely because of the fact that NBC hasn’t had a hit here ever since Grimm came to a close. This past season Taken aired during this timeslot before it was eventually pulled from the show and canceled.

If there is a larger question at the moment, it’s this: Whether or not this move could lead to The Blacklist announcing a final season. Given that it’s not premiering until midseason, we’d prefer some sort of news there sooner rather than later. It’s going to be a long time until the show premieres after Wednesday night’s finale and with that in mind, the show isn’t going to be able to plan for the end based on whatever the ratings are.

As for Brooklyn Nine-Nine…

It’s later premiere date isn’t anywhere near as much of a surprise for many different reasons, including that NBC probably didn’t even know they were picking this show up until a matter of days ago. Waiting until midseason gives them a chance to see what the ratings are for a number of their different shows and with that in mind, allows this show a better chance to succeed. After all, we don’t want to see Brooklyn Nine-Nine around for just one season on the network!
