Ready for some more high-stakes FBI profiling action? Good, 'cause NBC's The Blacklist is coming back in 2019 for its sixth season with a two-part premiere that's sure to start the year out on an exciting note.
Fans of the show will remember that in the Season 5 finale, that mysterious bag of bones turned out to contain the remains of the real Raymond "Red" Reddington, while the man who's been claiming that title is still alive and mostly well. As for James Spader's character's true identity? Well, that's the challenge Liz (Megan Boone) will be facing as she grapples with the meaning of NotRed's meticulous misdirection, not to mention the fact that he really did mean it when he said he wasn't her father all those seasons ago, and her real dad is now dead and gone.
Showrunner Jon Bokenkamp told TV Guide that Liz will now be getting into the double agent mode by not revealing what she knows about the real Red, which means the tables are turning when it comes to all this subterfuge in Season 6.
There are several options for how to watch the two-part premiere: You can watch the inaugural episode of the new season during its initial airtime on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 10/9c on NBC and catch the second hour during its debut on Friday, Jan. 4 at 9/8c. Or you can watch both episodes back-to-back starting Friday, Jan. 4 at 8/7c. From episode 3 on out, though, things will be back to normal with The Blacklist airing on Fridays at 9/8c.
