What will happen in The Blacklist season 6?

The Blacklist follows Red, a former US Navy officer turned criminal who surrendered to the FBI in season one. In a deal with the FBI to avoid prosecution, he becomes an informer.

Each episode has seen Red and his steam capturing dangerous criminals.

The end of season five ended on a huge cliffhanger.

A bag of human remains belonged to the real Raymond Reddington suggesting the Raymond Red Reddington viewers know is actually an imposter.

After the finale of season five, fans online were calling Red, “Fake Red”. Does this mean the human remains belong to Liz’s real father?

Showrunner on Bokenkamp told Digital Spy: “This is something that we’ve talked about from the inception of the show. It is part of the underlying mythology that we’ve slowly been unravelling.

“This blows up everything… Very rarely does anyone know something that Reddington doesn’t know, right? He’s always ahead of the curve. He’s a very cunning and smart, brilliant mastermind criminal, and yet he didn’t see this one coming.

“So I think that is a real power shift and something that we haven’t explored in past seasons.”

NBC’s official synopsis for season six reads: “Following the startling revelation that Raymond “Red” Reddington isn’t who he says he is, Elizabeth Keen is torn between the relationship she’s developed with the man assumed to be her father and her desire to get to the bottom of years of secrets and lies.

“Meanwhile, Red leads Liz and the FBI to some of the most strange and dangerous criminals yet, growing his empire and eliminating rivals in the process. All throughout, Liz and Red engage in an uneasy cat-and-mouse game in which lines will be crossed and the truth will be revealed.”
