Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the crime drama opens with Agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) on the run with criminal mastermind Raymond Reddington (James Spader), after she was accused of murdering a U.S. Senator. Assistant Director Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix) is under investigation and Agent Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) is tasked with leading the manhunt. As Liz and Red try to stay ahead of their pursuers and find a way to clear her name, she also finds herself so immersed into the criminal underworld that the Blacklisters might be her only chance of survival.

Critic Reviews for The Blacklist: Season 3

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

I'm not saying the newly invigorated Blacklist has become "Viewers Most Wanted", but so far I like.

Season Three of The Blacklist upped the show's game with slightly more adventurous writing that made the show a more consistent bet from week to week.

August 2, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Last season, there were many indications that The Blacklist was running on fumes. The Troll Farmer offers hope that the tank is finally refilled.

Hopefully with the Fulcrum out of the bag and Liz's past more filled in than ever, the show won't spend quite as much time this year with vague hints of reveals to come and concern itself more with what Red's up to right now.

October 4, 2015 | Rating: 7.3/10 | Full Review…

I'm really quite surprised at how conceptual this season 3 premiere turned out to be.
