Abstract: The present status of the blazar spectral sequence is discussed, includingnew findings about blazars selected with different criteria than the originalcomplete radio-samples. Despite extensive searches of blazars -breaking- thesequence, the original idea proposed 10 years ago, still seems to hold. On theother hand the forthcoming launch of the GLAST satellite will provide a newselection band for blazars and blazar related populations as well as fantasticprogress on the spectra and variability behaviour of presently known blazars.The order of magnitude increase in sensitivity of GLAST will allow to detectgamma-rays from jets with lower power and-or lower beaming factor, thussampling a much wider population.
