Sixth Season Yessss!!!
Well, it looks like the mystery will keep unfolding for the bag of bones at NBC as it has renewed The Blacklist for a six season of 22 episodes.
The Blacklist this season is averaging a 0.9 demo with a 5.7 million weekly total viewers, just off half a tenth in the demo versus last season while up eight percent in audience. Among all the NBC dramas, the series ranks seventh in the demo just behind This is Us and all the Dick Wolf shows and Good Girls.
The show's current fifth season has been an eventful one for the FBI team. After losing her husband in a deadly shootout, Liz has spent the much of the second half of the season on the hunt for his murderer, Ian Garvey, who she successfully tracked down and killed in the April 25 episode.
Meanwhile, Red is in the pursuit of a duffel bag that contains unidentified human remains. According to the series creator Jon Bokenkamp, "we are going to find out the truth that is in this duffel bag and the identity of these bones: in the May 16th season ender.
With the news of The Blacklist getting renewed, there's still no word about Timeless (as the same company produces both shows). Timeless serves up a wonderfully crazy finale on Sunday night, and it's NBC's last remaining "bubble" drama that will either get picked up or dumped.
