The Blacklist is readying to return! Megan Boone and more stars took to social media to celebrate the beginning of filming on Season 8. Boone is back at work alongside her co-stars. According to what the actress has previously stated, they will be back in live-action form instead of animated. The Blacklist’s return to production marks the first time filming has commenced on a post-COVID season.

Earlier this year, The Blacklist was forced to come to an early end, due to the escalating threat of our current health crisis, with an impromptu finale. The ingenious minds behind the crime drama rallied to wrap the season on a complete note by undertaking animated means to do so. Cut to October, and filming on Season 8 has begun, with Megan Boone posting this:

This is a much different look than the cast of When Calls the Heart rocked, but I like it all the same. As long as the cast and crew are safe and healthy! In another post on Instagram, Megan Boone assured fans that they will “love” Season 8. If that is not enough for you to get excited about it, something else might. Here is what fan-favorite Amir Arison posted:

Aram, Agent Park, and Cooper in a single picture! How lucky are fans right now? Amir Arison enjoyed last season immensely, and it looks like he is having a blast getting to work on The Blacklist. Everyone is sporting their semi-masquerade-style face shield with a grin, including Harry Lennix and Laura Sohn. Season 8 is going to be Sohn’s first as a series regular, so stay tuned for that. In another behind-the-scenes glimpse, Arison posted this:

I do not think that Amir Arison could have a better attitude getting back to work. It has been more than a while since fans got to see The Blacklist, and Arison, Megan Boone, and the rest of the ensemble seem excited to get back to it. Speaking of which, Hisham Tawfiq shared a selfie that was not from the set, but Season 8 related, nevertheless. Check it out:

Dembe will not be rocking a beard in Season 8. He will be back, though, and that is the most important thing. It will be interesting to see if Dembe uncovers Liz’s latest betrayal. When The Blacklist left off, Liz sided with her mother in the ever-brewing war between Katarina and Red. Will Dembe realize this and have to out Liz? The Blacklist will be back soon to reveal the answer.

Check out Megan Boone, Amir Arison, and Hisham Tawfiq when Liz, Aram, and Dembe return for Season 8. The Blacklist will return next month as one of this fall’s premieres on Friday, November 13, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Until they come back, you can check out all seven seasons of the crime drama via Netflix.
