The Blacklist Season 8 is not coming to Netflix in August 2021

Now that The Blacklist Season 8 has finished airing on NBC, you’ll want to binge-watch the series on Netflix. It’s not arriving next month.

Doing a Netflix binge of The Blacklist has become popular before the new season of the series premieres. That’s not going to be possible just yet. The Blacklist Season 8 isn’t on the list of arrivals on Netflix in August 2021.

This isn’t too surprising. The series has never been added to Netflix in the month of August.

We have an idea of when to expect the eighth season on Netflix, but will it be in time before The Blacklist Season 9 premieres?

The Blacklist Season 8 Netflix release date

Every year, we see new episodes of The Blacklist come to Netflix in September. This is usually toward the start of the month, giving fans the time to catch up on the series before NBC premieres new episodes.

We’re expecting something similar for The Blacklist Season 8. While the show got a later start and finish, The Blacklist Season 9 is still part of the fall schedule. Plus, Sony is the distributor for the series. That’s who the Netflix deal is with, which helps to keep some consistency with Netflix releases regardless of the NBC schedule.

There is a possibility that it will be pushed back to October. This could be something NBC negotiates due to the pandemic delays. However, we’re not expecting it later than that. After all, we already have a premiere date for The Blacklist Season 9.

The eight season is the last with Megan Boone as Liz Keen. It’s also going to be the last with Jon Bokenkamp as showrunner. This could mean that Season 9 is the last, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

The Blacklist Season 8 is expected on Netflix in September 2021.
