'The Blacklist' Season 9 trailer
The network recently dropped a trailer for the upcoming season of The Blacklist. The clip does not reveal much, however, it gives viewers the idea that the FBI task force will be back seeking vengeance.
The trailer begins with a flashback from Season 8 where Raymond Reddington, aka Red (James Spader), is seen holding Elizabeth Keen’s (Megan Boone) body while his voiceover plays in the background:
“After Elizabeth’s death, there is nothing.”
As Red is giving up on the task force, the other members want to keep Elizabeth aka Liz alive by bringing their squad together and going after the blacklisters.
What to expect from the new season
The new season of The Blacklist jumped forward two years after Liz’s death. FBI task force members have scattered with Red's whereabouts unknown. In the premiere episode titled The Skinner, the squad will be drawn back together after one of their own is injured in the line of duty.
The official synopsis of The Blacklist Season 1 reads:
“Finding themselves each at a crossroads, a common purpose compels them to renew their original mission: to take down dangerous, vicious and eccentric Blacklisters. In the process, they begin to uncover lethal adversaries, unimaginable conspiracies and surprising betrayals that will threaten alliances and spur vengeance for the past, led by the most devious criminal of them all: Raymond Reddington.”
A lot of action, drama and reunion tears are expected from the upcoming episodes. Speaking about the characters and what to expect from the new season, executive producer John Eisendrath said:
“Even as they've scattered to the four winds, the criminal world has just kept ticking along, which at a certain point becomes impossible for our heroes to ignore. Red and the task force might find themselves in new surroundings, but rest assured: The Blacklisters are just as nasty as ever.”
In addition to Spader (who plays Red), The Blacklist Season 9 will also star Diego Klattenhoff (Donald Ressler), Laura Sohn (Alina Park), Amir Arison (Aram Mojtabai), Hisham Tawfiq (Dembe Zuma) and Harry Lennix (Harold Cooper).
The critically-acclaimed show is produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and Universal Television.
