‘The Blacklist Season 9’ Update: This important character is set to return

November 25, 2021

The Blacklist Season 9 is still in full swing and there is still a lot of revelation to come. In addition to a backstory that tells the changing relationship between Red (James Spader) and Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq), an important character will also return.

The Blacklist Season 9 is a big leap two years after the death of Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). This is a major change as Red is taking a different path.

It can be assumed that other people in his syndicate have moved forward with his move. But what about Chuck (Jonathan Holtzman)?

Chuck is an important part of Red’s security team, according to Cartermatt. After being gone for a while, he will finally return in the new season.

Holtzman himself confirms his arrival for The Blacklist Season 9 on his Instagram Stories, but only for one episode. Fans last saw Chuck last season and it has been confirmed that he is still in contact with Red.

Does the return of Chuck mean that Morgan (Genson Blimline) will make a comeback too? Well, it looks like fans will have to wait and see if that happens.

In the meantime, with the task force involved in Red being disbanded, the new season will explore how the lives of all characters changed after Keen’s death. Dembe is now an FBI agent threatening Red’s operation, which leads to a series of fights between the two, Screenrant said.

TVLine has hinted that there will be a flashback that will reveal why Dembe is no longer with Red. Executive producer John Eisendrath said they wanted to research what happened to Dembe over the past two years.

That particular storyline would explain what happened to Dembe’s relationship with Red and how he became part of the FBI. Eisendrath said there will be an episode that looks back on Dembe’s journey between the end of season 8 and the start of season 9.

So far, the current season has skipped five episodes since it started on October 21. However, from a weekly episode, there will be a two-week break between episode 5 and episode 6.

Gizmo Story stated that the series’ creators put a hiatus between the first five episodes and the rest. There are theories that the break is related to Thanksgiving, and the release of subsequent episodes will come shortly. The Blacklist Season 9 Episode 6 will be released on Thursday December 9th.
