NBC series returns for a second season in September

“The Blacklist” just earned a lot of green.

The NBC series, which stars James Spader, has been acquired by Netflix for the hefty sum of $2 million per episode, an individual with knowledge of the deal told TheWrap on Thursday.

The series, which premiered last September, was a breakout hit for NBC. Benefiting from a strong lead-in in the form of “The Voice,” the series scored a solid 3.8 rating/10 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic with its premiere episode. The debut also pulled in an impressive 12.6 million total viewers.

Episodes of “The Blacklist” will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 7.

The second season of the series, which will bring aboard “Weeds” star Mary-Louise Parker and “Breaking Bad” alum Krysten Ritter, premieres Sept. 22.

Deadline first reported the news of the “Blacklist” acquisition.
