The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the Kyle Chandler-Ben Mendelsohn-Sissy Spacek-Linda Cardellini drama will end after Season 3, despite an initial plan from creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler to tell the Rayburn family saga for five or six seasons. A final ten episodes will stream in 2017, but the article expresses uncertainty Sony will attempt to shop additional orders anywhere else.
Apart from lukewarm reception, Bloodline suffered a notable setback in preparing a third season, as a cut Florida entertainment tax incentive made production significantly more expensive.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Bloodline followed the exploits of the Rayburn family after the eldest brother and black sheep (Mendelsohn) returns home, exposing the emotional demons at the family’s core. Created by the team behind Damages, the series also stars Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, John Leguizamo, Jamie McShane, Enrique Murciano, Sissy Spacek, and Sam Shepard.
