‘The Blacklist’ Season 9 was the first without Liz Keen
The Blacklist killed off Megan Boone’s character Liz Keen in the season 8 finale. One of Neville Townsend’s henchmen shot her in front of Raymond Reddington. Meanwhile, Boone announced her departure from the show to work on other projects in June of 2021.
Season 9 of The Blacklist focused on Red’s quest to avenge Liz’s death. It was also the first season of James Spader without Megan Boone. Though the premise was a little different this time around, some fans found the change of pace enjoyable. Season 9 introduced several intriguing new characters, as well as a mystery surrounding Liz’s death.
‘The Blacklist’ Season 9 is coming to Netflix in October 2022
The Blacklist Season 9 premiered almost exactly a year ago, on October 21, 2021. The season featured 22 episodes in total, with several breaks in between, and the finale finally dropped on May 27, 2022. However, since The Blacklist is a network series, some fans may not have watched it yet.

What do fans think of season 9?
Though season 9 received some mixed reactions from fans, many find it worth watching. “I enjoyed the show more now that Liz is gone. Never liked her, really, her character was too naive for me to really relate to or enjoy. Even tho season 9 is about finding her killer, I found it more enjoyable, at least for me,” one Reddit user wrote. “I found it more consistent in quality than S7-S8 and more enjoyable for it. There was also a new set of mysteries given. I liked that,” another fan added.
