Raymond Reddington is on the move.
Hit NBC drama The Blacklist is relocating from its current UK home on Sky Living to the satcaster’s flagship channel Sky1 when it returns from its mid-season break next month.
The news was first revealed by the continuity announcer during the closing moments of the mid-season finale (Dr Adrian Shaw: Conclusion), which first aired on Sky Living last week.
The Blacklist has been a fixture on Sky Living since 2013 and has consistently been a strong ratings player for the channel. Given the high-octane nature of the show and its decided male-skew, the series is perhaps a more natural fit for Sky1’s audience; joining other such U.S. imports as NCIS: Los Angeles and Hawaii Five-0, both of which recently returned to channel for their new seasons.
Created by Jon Bokenkamp, The Blacklist tells the story of the world’s most wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with. His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent with whom he seemingly has no connection. The drama is produced Sony Pictures Television and stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix and Hisham Tawfiq.
