Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) will be behind bars in “The Blacklist” Season 6 titled “The Corsican,” which will air on NBC on January 4, 2019. This further complicates his relationship with Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone), who already knows that he is an imposter and that he is not her father.
While Liz and the Task Force race to stop an imminent bombing by a Blacklister in “The Corsican,” a New York Police Department beat cop arrests Red. While still working with Red behind bars, Liz is in a dilemma as she could not deny that she still feels affection for the intelligent rogue who has always tried to protect her.
Boone told Arizona Daily Sun that Liz knows that Red “does a lot of good in the world” and she does not want to “get in the way of that.” At this point, Liz believes that there are times when the morally correct things can be sacrificed for the greater good, the actress said.
Along with Spader and Boone, “The Corsican” will feature Amir Arison as Aram Mojtabai, Fiona Dourif as Lillian Roth/Jennifer Reddington, Diego Klattenhodd as Donald Ressler, Harry Lennix as Harold Cooper, Mozhan Marno as Samar Navabi and Hisham Tawfiq as Dembe Zuma. The episode will mark the debut of Hugh Cha and On Mekahel in “The Blacklist” where they are playing a U.N. guard and a visitor, respectively.
Christopher Lambert will return as Bastien Moreau. The character first appeared in “The Blacklist” Season 6 episode 1 titled “Dr. Hans Koehler,” which aired on NBC on January 3, 2019.
“The Blacklist” was created by Jon Bokenkamp. He executive produces the crime thriller series with Spader, John Davis, John Eisendrath, John Fox and Joe Carnahan,
