Source : EW. The Blacklist ended its fifth season with a shocking twist, Raymond Reddington we’ve been following for the past five seasons has only been posing as Raymond Reddington. The real one is dead, and has been for years and Liz now knows the truth. If Spader’s not playing Red, who is he portraying? Season 6 Release Date : NBC has revealed its schedule for the 2018-19 TV season, below, and there are some changes in the mix. The biggest move might be holding the sixth season premiere of The Blacklist until next January and pushing the show to Friday nights, where it will be paired with Blindspot. The Show creator Jon Bokenkamp had an interview with entertainment weekly and he gave them the scoop. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Did you know from the beginning that James Spader was not playing Raymond Reddington? JON BOKENKAMP: Yeah, this is something that we’ve talked about from the inception of the show. It is part of the underlying mythology that we’ve slowly been unraveling. I think there are a number of episodes that we can go back and sort of map and chart how we got here. Did Spader know? Did the cast? Yes, James has known and it’s something we’ve talked extensively about. The cast did not know, as far as I know. I’m always the last to know, so I have really no idea who else knew. But the thing I want to point out is that it doesn’t change tuning in to watch Spader be Raymond Reddington. He’s lived as Raymond Reddington long enough to be this person, right? He has told great stories, he has had great experiences, he’s become a world-class criminal and probably become a far more interesting person than the real Raymond Reddington ever dreamed of becoming. If he’s not Red, is there anything you can say as to who he is? Well, I do think that is primarily the reason to come back in season 6, but you can go online and find all kinds of theories, imposter theories of who he is. There are a great number of them, by the way, many of which could make sense. But one of the things I love best about the show is that I can read some of these and I’d be like, “Well, that actually tracks.” What’s going to be the most fun about next season is watching Liz peel back this onion and get to the truth of why this man entered her life five years ago. Liz has vowed to destroy Red. She went pretty dark in this episode. How far will she go? Yeah, well remember that she knows this truth about Reddington, but he does not know that she knows. I think that piece of information is really compelling. Not only has she learned a great deal from this man that she believed was her father, Raymond Reddington, she’s also learned a great deal from her now-deceased husband, who was a spy. So this is not the first-day-on-the-job FBI agent in the pilot who has just had a bombshell dropped in her lap. This is somebody who is struggling with who she is at the very core, and has not only killed people, has stewed people, has lied to people she’s worked with, so the potential darkness and the way in which she may approach handling this bombshell I think has real possibilities.
