The Blacklist has wrapped up its sixth season and with season 7 due out in fall 2019, we thought we’d revisit our article on taking a look at when we can expect season 6 of The Blacklist to be on Netflix.
As you may remember, Netflix famously picked up The Blacklist for a record amount of money. It’s on what’s called a “legacy contract” whereby so long as NBC keeps producing new seasons, they’ll keep coming to Netflix. Some have feared the remainder of NBC’s library will leave Netflix which is what is happening to The Office, for example. We’ll take a look at whether or not that’ll happen at the bottom of this article.
What to expect from season 6 of The Blacklist?
At the end of season 5, we only needed one storyline to be wrapped up. Who is the imposter? All should be revealed in season 6. Red has been a man of mystery since the very beginning but last season took the biscuit.

As per previous seasons, there were 22 episodes that made up season 6 of The Blacklist. Episodes began slightly later than usual in January 2019 with them wrapping up in May 2019.
When will season 6 of The Blacklist be on Netflix?
If you’re not watching the show live on NBC or using its applications to catch up weekly, you’ll need Netflix to binge-watch the show.
NBC renews its content on an annual basis on Netflix. For the past several years, new seasons have always arrived on Netflix in September. We’re once again expecting the same this year meaning that season 6 will be on Netflix by September 2019. We don’t think that its delay on NBC will affect its Netflix release.
Will The Blacklist leave Netflix?
It’s unlikely. You may recall Netflix paid a lot of money for The Blacklist to stream on Netflix and that includes ongoing rights to the show. That means it’s likely going to continue to come to Netflix so long as they keep making new seasons.
There you have it, that’s when you’ll be streaming season 6 of The Blacklist on Netflix. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be watching live or through Netflix. Also looking ahead, season 7 of The Blacklist is going ahead so we’ll be back once season 6 hits Netflix to give you a guide on when season 7 will head to Netflix too.
