  1. I so love Netflix, every month they have excellent new shows and movies and amazing documentaries. I do hope season 2 of Gotham is not too far away 🙂

  2. Can’t wait for Luke Cage & season 2 of Narcos. Although I’m probably most excited about season 5 of Longmire, fantastic show.

  3. YAY, I see season 3 of The Blacklist is now on Netflix, I’m still watching season 2 🙂

  4. Hi Philip. The Blacklist Season 4 release date in the US is 22nd September. Do you know when the new series will appear on TV3?

  5. Hi Mark. No, I don’t but chances are it could be 9.30 Sunday. The Blacklist’s ratings have slumped too low for it justify an 8.30 return but with the fourth season reportedly meant to be darker than its predecessors, TV3 might see an opportunity to relaunch it here behind Grand Designs NZ, season two of which is scheduled to premiere September 25, three days after The Blacklist’s season premiere in the US.

  6. Thanks Philip. Fingers crossed that it does appear in the not too distant future.

  7. It now looks as if The Blacklist might be consigned to late-night. TV3’s advance schedule has it pencilled in for post-Newshub Late on Mondays from November. But this schedule is preliminary only and subject to frequent change.
