Announced today, NBC has officially renewed the James Spader-led series for a seventh season.

Season 6 is airing now on Fridays.

The Blacklist started out as a huge hit in 2013 when it aired after The Voice, but aside from a one-night pop after the Super Bowl in Season 2, the show never retained its audience when it moved to Thursdays. This season, the show was bumped to Fridays at 9 p.m.

The Blacklist remains a strong performer for the network, with an average of 7.3 million overall viewers per week, including live and delayed-viewing audiences. That is a 119 percent jump in the demographic.
