The Blacklist is uncertain of a sixth season, but the NBC drama will break 100 episodes.
Speaking to Variety, series star Megan Boone teased what to expect in the landmark 100th installment of The Blacklist:
We were really fortunate to get Nathan Lane as our guest star and his role was tailored for him; he played it so well. It was nice for me personally because he was the first actor I ever saw in a play. When I was young my grandparents took me to see “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” and he made me fall in love with theater. So this was serendipitous for me personally. But as far as the audience goes they probably want to know he plays Abraham Stern, who is this cunning manipulator who has devoted his life to recovering this fortune that he feels is his birthright. Meanwhile, Liz is still on this quest to find Tom’s killers, so she’s being led down this really dark path and studying the methods of one of the Blacklist’s most dangerous blacklisters. In the way Liz decides to take care of her business there’s an homage to one of the more popular blacklisters, as we’re sort of reprising those methods. I think fans will like it.
The Blacklist bosses have confirmed they are going all out for Season 6, even if it means the show gets cancelled on a major cliffhanger.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of The Blacklist…
