For decades, ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as "The Concierge of Crime."
Last season, he mysteriously surrendered to the FBI... but now the FBI works for him as he identifies a "blacklist" of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all - with the caveat that Elizabeth "Liz" Keen (Megan Boone) continues to work as his partner.
Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal and see the bigger picture... whether she wants to or not.
As Season 2 opens, Red continues to battle Berlin (guest star Peter Stormare) and faces a new threat from a man named Lord Baltimore. An important person comes back from the past into Red's world.
Meanwhile, Liz tries to move forward with her life after her showdown with Tom (Ryan Eggold). Also starring in Season 2 are Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison and Mozhan Marnò.
Jon Bokenkamp (The Call, Taking Lives), John Eisendrath (Alias), John Davis (Predator, I, Robot, Chronicle), John Fox and Michael Watkins (The X-Files) serve as executive producers. The Blacklist is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
Season 2 premiered on NBC on Monday 22 September, 2014. When it returned in 2015 it was in a new timeslot of Thursdays at 21h00, from 5 February.
