When the Fall season rolls back around, that’s when we know all of our favorite shows are returning to television once again. NBC’s The Blacklist is back again on Friday nights as the crime-drama returns for its seventh season on the network. For Netflix subscribers, the most important question is “when will The Blacklist season 7 be coming to Netflix?” Let’s find out.
Since 2013, The Blacklist has been wildly entertaining audiences around the world. Thanks to the brilliant mind of Jon Bokenkamp, and the talent of James Spader’s spectacular performances as Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington the series has become one of the most popular titles NBC has broadcast in recent years. Not to mention with over 130 episodes to its name, The Blacklist makes a perfect binge.
When will season 7 of The Blacklist be on Netflix?
If you’ve been following The Blacklist on Netflix you’ll know how the Netflix release schedule works. NBC will air all episodes of the seventh season but it will not be available on Netflix immediately after the finale.
The latest season of The Blacklist will arrive in September. Assuming that The Blacklist is renewed for an eighth season, season seven will arrive a week or two before the premiere of season eight.
Potential Release Date: September 2020
What to expect from the seventh season of The Blacklist?
Red is usually one step ahead of all those he encounters but after meeting with Katarina on a dark Paris street, he let his guard down, resulting in his capture. His former lover is looking to extract information from Red that is likely to endanger the lives of many civilians.
Since Katarina’s disappearance, Liz has yet to be reunited with her long lost mother, but after discovering who the culprit of Red’s kidnapper is, we expect they’ll be meeting real soon.
Jon Bokenkamp the creator of The Blacklist and the current showrunner of the series John Eisendrath discussed more with Variety on what to expect from the seventh season of The Blacklist:
“He’s (Red) not dead… He’s alive, but despite that, the end opens up an incredible number of possibilities,” said Eisendrath. “What is going through Katarina’s mind? How was Red so easily deceived? What did he think was going to happen when he showed up unguarded and met this woman on a dark street in Paris? How does a man who does nothing without taking incredible precautions leave himself open and vulnerable to being captured or attacked by a woman who he allegedly has known his own life was her lover, had a child?”
When will The Blacklist be coming to Netflix in other regions?
There are many regions outside of the US streaming The Blacklist.
Australian subscribers receive episodes of The Blacklist on a weekly basis. There is a delay in between the US broadcast and Australian broadcast.
Netflix Canada currently has five seasons of The Blacklist in its library. The sixth season will arrive eventually but this means an even longer wait for season seven.
The following regions also receive the latest seasons of The Blacklist:
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- South Korea
In the UK, The Blacklist isn’t available to stream on Netflix. You can stream episodes on Now TV or if you are a customer of Sky, you can catch up on episodes through Sky Go.
Is The Blacklist leaving Netflix?
The Blacklist won’t be leaving Netflix for quite some time. Since 2014, Netflix has been paying a lot of money, $2 Mill per episode, for The Blacklist.
While NBC is releasing its own streaming service, Peacock, this is unlikely to interfere with the current contract Netflix has. This is because Netflix’s contract for The Blacklist is with Sony Television and not NBC.
For NBC to pry The Blacklist away from Netflix, they would have to pay a higher fee, and while NBC has proven it is happy to spend money to bolster their library, it’s an expensive commitment to make.
Is season 7 the last season of The Blacklist?
There’s no confirmation that season seven is the last we’ll see of The Blacklist.
While viewing figures have fallen season by season, they still command a healthy and respectable number. Not to mention many fans that Netflix subscribers may just wait for the latest season to come so they can binge instead.
We’re fully expecting The Blacklist to receive a renewal for season 8, but as to when the series will come to an end perhaps we’ll know more soon.
