ACTRESS Megan Boone starred as FBI agent Elizabeth Keen on NBC's The Blacklist.
But Boone made her final appearance as a regular cast member in the season eight finale on June 23, 2021.
Why did Megan Boone leave The Blacklist?
The Blacklist featured James Spader as Raymond (Red) Reddington, a criminal mastermind who suddenly starts cooperating with authorities, and Boone as an FBI agent.
According to the show's description, Boone's character "must decide how far she is willing to go to find out why Reddington has entered her life and what his endgame really is."
"The fallout between Reddington and Keen will have devastating consequences for all that lie in their wake, including the Task Force they helped to create."
Both Spader and Boone are original cast members of The Blacklist, which launched in 2013, but Boone did not return for season nine.
Her departure from the show was a mutual decision, according to Deadline.
"Season 8 has completed Liz’s transformation from a wide-eyed rookie FBI agent to a criminal on the run who has embraced her dark side," Deadline's Nellie Andreeva writes.
In the season finale Red asks Liz to kill him, but she is reluctant.
Instead, Liz gets shot in the back by a gunman, who is then killed by Red.
Boone has also starred in several independent films, including Stephen Elliott's About Cherry.
