I have yet to see Netflix’s new series Bloodline but it certainly has its fair share of fans (Allison put it in the “Damn Fine Television” ranks with her review) so I imagine they will be happy to hear that the show has been renewed for a second season. The drama follows the Rayburns, as the eldest brother and black sheep of the family (Ben Mendelsohn) returns home to expose the family’s emotional demons, threatening to tear them apart.
Having not watched the first wave of episodes I don’t yet know who or who will not be returning for Bloodline Season 2. But the show is scheduled to start shooting agin later this year and will pop up again on Netflix in 2016. Bloodline comes from creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler (known as KZK), and stars Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Sam Shepard and Sissy Spacek.
There’s so much good TV out there these days it’s almost overwhelming to make time to watch all of it, but it looks like this is mandatory on my “to watch” list now. Where would you guys rank this against House of Cards, Mad Men and Breaking Bad? Where should my priorities be?
