The Blacklist premieres in exactly a month, and it's about time. At Wikia, we love ourselves some paranormal crime and we're always on the lookout for new television that center on it.
If you're not already familiar, here's The Blacklist's premise: For decades, ex-government agent Raymond Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as "The Concierge of Crime." Now, he's mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth Keen, an FBI proﬁler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it's going to be one hell of a ﬁrst day on the job.
