Blacklist was in the middle of filming its 19th episode for the seventh season when the coronavirus pandemic broke out and shut down NYC. Therefore, they never got to complete what is now the final episode of the episode.

What are they going to do? Are they hold the episode for next season or come up with a creative way to finish it? They did the latter.

NBC revealed today that they will be adding graphic novel animation to the live-action scenes to flesh out the episode. All of the actors recorded their audio from their homes, and their voices will be added to the animation.

The season finale will air on May 15th, a week after the series’ 150th episode.

The Blacklist is not the first show to change up things due to the stay-at-home orders. All Rise aired an enjoyable all Zoom episode yesterday. It is not the only show to have done this. Saturday Night Live, American Idol, and The Voice have all done episodes like that too and this Saturday, Danger Force will do the same on Nickelodeon. While they are all live-action, Pop TV’s One Day At a Time will be doing an animated episode later this year.
