NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told TVLine on Sunday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour that even if State of Affairs — NBC’s new Katherine Heigl-fronted drama — fails to perform well in the Mondays-at-10 time slot starting in mid-November, “The Blacklist isn’t going to go back in there.”
Rather, The Blacklist is set to launch Season 2 on Monday, Sept. 22, make way for State of Affairs starting Nov. 17, and then return from its 10-week hiatus in early February — first with an aprés-Super Bowl showcase, then with a second new episode just days later, christening its new Thursdays-at-9 home.

Greenblatt explained that The Blacklist would only have delivered eight or nine new episodes this fall regardless, due to the show’s “enormous” production demands. By moving last season’s No. 1 new series to a new night, Greenblatt hopes to “change the game” for NBC on Thursdays.
For good measure, The Blacklist‘s pre-hiatus finale will deliver a “big hook” to pique and hold viewers’ interest over the break, before the drama returns with a “big two-parter” during Super Bowl week.

“The Blacklist” returns for its second season Sept. 22 (10-11 p.m.) following “The Voice.” “The Blacklist,” which stars Emmy winner James Spader as “Red” Reddington, was the top new series last season and helped propel NBC to No. 1 in the 18-49 demo for the first time in 10 years.
