“This experience, for me, has been a lifetime inside my own life,” Boone wrote alongside a photo of herself as Elizabeth “Liz” Keen and her co-manager, James Spader, as Raymond “Red” Reddington. “Those eight years of playing with Liz Keen helped me define the world and myself better, as she began to do the same. Liz sought incorruptible family ties and collided with powerful forces to reveal the limits where a cruel and indifferent world ended and where it began.
Boone then thanked his cast and crew and the show’s long list of guest stars. “What a list. What a dream. Thank you all, ”she concluded.
The blacklist creator / executive producer Jon Bodenkamp paid tribute to his principal lady. “You have been an incredible collaborator, a tireless partner, and I couldn’t be more proud of what we have built together,” he wrote on Twitter.
The series is slated to return for Season 9 this fall.
Words cannot express my gratitude, Megan. You have been an incredible collaborator, a tireless partner, and I could not be more proud of what we have built together. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this incredible ride. I can’t wait to see what you dream of next. pic.twitter.com/ZuALX1s9M2
