The Blacklist Season 6 or cancelled with Season 5?
The future of The Blacklist is uncertain with NBC yet to renew the drama for a sixth season. However, with a big finale cliffhanger planned, EP Jon Bokenkamp doesn’t envisage Season 5 as the end, per EW:
“We have a great cliffhanger, and a big ending for the season in mind that I think is going to be really compelling. It’s not what we imagine the end of the series to be.”
On writing the final episodes of Season 5 with cancellation still a possibility, Bokenkamp affirms his belief in a sixth season:
“It’s interesting to not know, and how you write toward that. We’ve decided that we love the characters enough that if, for whatever reason, we didn’t have an opportunity to come back, we just have to find another way to do it, but we’re not going to rush to some ending out of fear that we’re not coming back. We have a story that we’re telling that we really like, and it’s going to take the time it takes to tell it.”
What do you think? Should The Blacklist be cancelled on a cliffhanger or is there enough life for a sixth season?
Stay tuned as the cancel/renew picture becomes ever clearer for The Blacklist Season 6…
