Netflix ‘Bloodline’ Renewed for Season 3, But Is Florida an Option?
The second season of Netflix’s Bloodline came and went about as quietly as the first, though Netflix isn’t generally the type to cancel series outright. The Rayburn family drama will indeed return for Season 3 in 2017, though Florida tax credit changes place a questionable future on the horizon.
Netflix confirmed an official 10-episode order for Season 3 of Bloodline, down from the 13 episodes of Season 1, but consistent with Season 2. Lest anyone wonder, Ben Mendelsohn will again reprise his role as Danny Rayburn, despite his more … let’s say “limited” presence in Season 2.
Perhaps more curious of an adjustment on the line, The Hollywood Reporter notes that Florida’s tax incentives program expired this year, creating headaches for both Bloodlines and HBO’s Ballers. For the moment at least, it’s unclear if Bloodline Season 3 will move production, setting, or remain in Florida without the tax credits.
The second season of Bloodline arrived on May 27, for which the official synopsis read:
Season 2 begins with the Rayburn family struggling to conceal their unthinkable crime. Mysterious strangers from Danny’s past arrive with a dangerous agenda. Law enforcement is closing in on the truth behind Danny’s murder. And the tight-knit family’s once harmonious relationship is poisoned by paranoia and mistrust as it slowly begins to unravel. Lies mount. Alliances are betrayed. Relationship are destroyed. With their backs against the wall, good people may have to do some very bad things…
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, Jamie McShane, Enrique Murciano, Sissy Spacek, and Sam Shepard.
