Sure, we’re still months away from The Blacklist season 9 premiering — but why not go ahead and start conversations on season 10? We know that the studio over at Sony could be invested in the show going for a little while longer.
As for whether or not that happens, that’s an entirely different story.

If you were to ask us after the immensely polarizing season 8 finale, we would have said with some certainty that The Blacklist season 9 would be the final season. The ratings are down year to year, and there is a feeling among many fans that the show is running out of steam.
Is that really going to be the case moving forward, though? There are a couple of things to watch.
1. The show’s move to Thursdays – Even if it may not be permanent, at the same time there’s a chance that the series may generate better numbers there. If it does, couldn’t that give the show a new lease on life? If the cast and crew want to continue, we really can’t rule something like that out.
2. Story potential – While it may feel like Liz’s death is the beginning of the end for this show, what if the writers discover something interesting this go-around? Maybe there’s a reset here that sets the stage for some other exciting stuff — the episodes without Megan Boone in them in season 8 had some great moments, even if it was strange seeing Liz talked about without her being visibly there. The rhythm and format for season 9 will almost certainly be different.
For now, we’re taking a wait and see approach regarding a season 10 — have no expectations and then be surprised if something happens.
Do you think there’s any chance of The Blacklist season 10 happening?
