    Can’t believe the actress from House of Cards is going to be a series regular on the second season of The Blacklist. So excited when the series returns September 22nd for the first eight episodes on Mondays until November 10th (once State of Affairs takes over the 10 pm. Monday night time slot beginning November 17th).
