“Congratulations to our incredible cast, producers and crew, all of whom continue to reach excellence week in and week out,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue Red and Liz’s story into season eight.”
“The Blacklist continues to tell exciting and imaginative stories,” said Chris Parnell, co-president of Sony Pictures Television. “It’s due to the brilliant cast, crew and our writing staff, led by Jon Bokenkamp and John Eisendrath, who commit to unparalleled creativity. Wait until you see what’s in store for season eight. Thank you to Lisa Katz, Tracey Pakosta, Pearlena Igbokwe and all of our partners at NBC and Universal Television.”
