The Blacklist Season 8 premiered on NBC a month ago, although this did not affect when it was released on Netflix. Season 9 will be premiered on NBC on 21st October. The series was created by Jon Bokenkamp and is now produced by Davis entertainment.
However, viewers of Netflix in the US will be able to watch season 8 on Netflix from October as well. This will follow releases in other regions.
The Blacklist is filmed in New York, and due to the coronavirus outbreak, the series got delayed from its scheduled time frame.
Usually, every new season of The Blacklist is aired in the month of September or October. However, it was pushed back to the end of the year in November.
Season 8 Release Date on Netflix
When Netflix bought the rights to bring The Blacklist on its platform, it was regarded as one of the biggest deals that were struck.
A whopping $2 million was paid for streaming one episode. However, Netflix US does not stream episodes on a weekly basis. The rights for these are still with NBC and Hulu.
The officials confirmed that the release date for The Blacklist was delayed to later November due to the pandemic.
A recent update confirmed that The Blacklist Season 8 would be released on Netflix US on 6th October 2021.
Season 7 of the series aired on the same day in Canada as in the US. Therefore, it is expected that Canadian viewers would also be able to watch the show on the same day.
Viewer’s expectation of Season 8
In the release’s lineup of Netflix, The Blacklist was nowhere to be found on the September list. This was very disappointing for many viewers.
The Blacklist Season 8 consists of 22 episodes. This crime thriller based on America received many praises. The series provided a high amount of viewership to Netflix and NBC.
Due to the pandemic, the last episode of season 7 was made in animation. However, it was the creativity of the filmmakers to take such bold steps. It left a bittersweet taste on the viewer’s mind.
Since then, the viewers are eagerly waiting to see their favorite characters again on the screen. Many of them demand that the last episode of season 7 be remolded. This is highly unlikely, according to the makers.
