It appears to be the end of the line for Bloodline.
Netflix will end the dark, suspenseful family drama/thriller after its third season, EW has confirmed. The news, which was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, comes just a few months after the series was picked up for a third season this summer, while season 2 was on the air.
Created by Damages team Glenn Kessler, Todd Kessler, and Daniel Zelman, the series stars Kyle Chandler as John Rayburn, the caretaker of the secret-prone Rayburn family in the Florida Keys. The 10-episode, 11-hour third season — which was originally slated for 13 episodes — will debut in 2017.
It is also unknown at this time if Sony Pictures Television, which produces the show, will seek a new home for Bloodline, as the executive producers have previously noted that they envisioned a five-season-plus plan for the series.
UPDATE: Netflix has issued a statement on the conclusion of Bloodline: “Bloodline season three will be the show’s final season,” says Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content. “Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler (KZK) are thoughtful and visionary storytellers, who lead a prestigious cast, that includes Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn, who have both garnered two Emmy nominations for their roles on the series. Together, with our collaborative partners at Sony Pictures Television, they created a seductive show that Netflix viewers worldwide love and continue to discover. We are looking forward to the exciting climax KZK have in store for the series conclusion in May 2017.”
