Release Date

With season 7, which was initially planned to have 22 episodes, having only 19 – the last of which ended up being animated, because of a halt in production due to the COVID-19 situation, it is hard to know if season 8 will ever end up getting released, or even if it does, when it will get released. Will it also be animated like that crazy last episode? Although an official statement confirming season 8 has been released, will the cast and crew be able to pull it off in such perilous times? Honestly, we don’t know. Furthermore, it is anyone’s guess as to whether or not season 8 will be the final season or not.

What It’s About

The show, based in Washington, D.C. and filmed in Manhattan is a thriller starring James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington as the show’s protagonist. Red, a former U.S Navy officer turned high profile criminal, agrees to turn himself in to the FBI in return for immunity from prosecution, but insists on working exclusively with FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen (played by Megan Boone), who is fresh out of Quantico.

Watch the duo as they track down and catch an array of criminals on whom Red has gathered information during his years spent as a goon.


A bunch of familiar faces will most likely make a return to the show, namely James Spader as Raymond, Megan Boone as Elizabeth, Deigo Klattenhoff as Donald Ressler, Harry Lenix as Harold Cooper, Mozhan Marno as Samer Navabi, etc…


No official trailer for the 8th season has been released so far, trailers for the rest of the seasons are available to watch on YouTube.
