The Blacklist Season 8 Netflix Release In The United States.
Starting with the Netflix United States, you may remember the time when the streaming giant picked up the license to the series. It was at that time, one of the biggest deals struck. Also, we would like to inform you that Netflix reportedly paid a hefty amount to stream each of the episodes of the series in the regions of $2 million per episode. Nevertheless, the streaming giant in the United States does not get weekly episodes. Those are available via catch-up via Hulu or NBC. However, it is unclear whether that will move to the Peacock in the near future.
Every season of the series has arrived like clockwork each September, and that is what we are expecting for the year 2021 too. However, if the delay of the series to air on NBC has any material effect, it may simply be pushed back a month or two months. Still, for the moment, we are expecting season eight to arrive on the online streaming service providing platform, Netflix, in the month of September of the year 2021.
