While we prepare for The Blacklist season 10 to arrive on NBC in the new year, why not celebrate some news now?
This week, the James Spader drama found itself the recipient of a pair of Saturn Awards nominations, which tend to recognize the best in many TV and film genres. The series scored a nod for Action / Thriller Series: Network / Cable, whereas Fisher Stevens (Marvin Gerard) received one for Guest-Starring Performance: Network / Cable Series. (You can see all nominees over here.)

Of course, we would’ve loved to see more nominations for Spader and some other cast members, but it’s still great to see the show recognized. It is important to remember how difficult it can be to get this sort of awards-show love nearly a decade into a series’ run, especially when you think about some of the hurdles that The Blacklist consistently has to overcome. Not only is this a network show in an era where such programs are frowned upon, but it also doesn’t receive a ton of promotion from NBC. Most of it comes either from its studio Sony or the dedicated audience.
Now, let’s just hope for more leading into season 10! We do think the ninth season is going to be looked at upon reflection as really underrated. While it took some time to get going, it told a narrative that made a great deal of sense, especially when it came to understanding why Marvin would betray Reddington and how desperate he was to cover his tracks after the fact. Also, the cliffhanger set in motion an interesting story moving into the new season.
What are you the most excited to see entering The Blacklist season 10?
