The Blacklist will resolve a big mystery well in advance of its anticipated fifth season, per EW:
Anything you can tease about the [midseason] cliffhanger that you’re going to leave audiences on?
BOKENKAMP: It’s different. It’s less of a cliffhanger. We’re going to get more answers in this coming episode. It’s less about a big “Who shot JR?” moment that leaves everybody with a big question and more about resolving it and pushing us forward in a new direction when we come back in January.
EISENDRATH: I think that Liz finally gets answers to the questions she’s been asking since the beginning of the show. That, to me, is what we are aiming for.
NBC has yet to officially confirm The Blacklist Season 5, but the crime/mystery drama is expected to continue its story into the 2017-18 season, barring a disaster.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of The Blacklist Season 5 and the upcoming spinoff, Redemption…
