Netflix has renewed Bloodline for a second season.
The announcement, made via the show’s official Twitter account, marks another re-commissioned project for the streaming service, which has seen more than one season ordered for each of its original drama projects. Because of the nature of VOD, Netflix doesn’t have to wait for viewing figures to be reported back throughout a season to determine it a success. Indeed, the company has become increasingly confident in its commissions: Orange Is the New Black received a third season before its second season had even premiered, while Bloodline’s Season 2 order comes just a few weeks after the show initially premiered.
The family drama, from the creators of Damages – Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman – follows the gradual unravelling of the Rayburns, whose annual celebrations in Florida see the return of the family’s black sheep and eldest son.
13 episode second season, set to air in 2016.
The show’s ensemble cast includes Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn, Sissy Spacek, Sam Shepard, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett and Jamie McShane.
The programme, which was released all-at-once in all of Netflix’s territories is expected to return for another run of 13 episodes in 2016.
