When the Blacklist came in 2013, it opened up to an audience of 13 million U.S. viewers and more worldwide; something not seen in these times filled up to the brim with TV series and movies. Boston Legal star James Spader had proved long ago that he is an exquisite TV actor, with a certain knack for sarcasm and dark comedy. With the Blacklist he slid comfortably into the crime and thriller genre; this time donning the role of an international criminal Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington. With suspense and twists at every turn, the Blacklist is a perfect series if you want a break from the age-old police procedural dramas. Here is the list of TV shows similar to The Blacklist. You can watch some of these shows like The Blacklist on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
12. The Blacklist: Redemption (2017)
A spinoff of the Blacklist, this one reprises some characters from the original series. Tom Keen, the master-assassin husband of Elizabeth Keen, has found his long-estranged mother, Susan Hargrave (Famke Janssen). To find out more about his mysterious past, he joins her organisation Halcyon. Working as her most trusted man, Tom completes dangerous missions for her mother all the time trying to find out the truth about his father’s death. Not as entertaining and suspenseful as Blacklist, but is worth a watch.
