Shortly after the debut of the second season of BLOODLINE, Netflix announced that the twisted family drama will be set for a third. But despite a plan for a five or six season run from series creators and executive producers Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, it was recently announced that this will be the show’s last run on the streaming giant.
The Sony Pictures Television-produced series, which stars Kyle Chandler, was originally set for 13-episode order for the third season. Since then, Netflix has cut the order to 10 episodes and slashed licensing fees on the show. There is no news on whether or not Sony is looking to shop future seasons to other streaming platforms or networks.
Netflix hasn’t canceled any of their original series since Lilyhammer and Hemlock Grove. It’s a rare move for the streaming platform which has a massive library of original programming that includes 30 shows.
Bloodline made its debut on Netflix to mixed reviews in 2015, but continues to maintain a loyal audience. The final season is slated to premiere in 2017.
