Netflix has cancelled Bloodline, with the upcoming third season to be the last.
Despite creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler having a six season game plan for the series, the streaming company has slashed the third season from 13 to 10 episodes and decided not to continue the serialized thriller into Season 4 and beyond, THR reveals:
In an in-depth story on the inner workings of the streaming giant, THR exclusively revealed that Netflix had notified Sony that the upcoming season, set for 2017, would be the show’s final outing on the platform. The streamer also cut the episode order from 13 episodes to 10, and slashed licensing fees on the show. Still, the two companies deny there are tensions between them.
The announcement comes just two months after the show was renewed for Season 3 and represents a major coup for the cancellation reaper.
It’s currently unclear whether Sony will try and shop Bloodline Season 4 elsewhere.
Before departing to the cancellation graveyard, the third and final season of Bloodline drops summer 2017 on Netflix, with hopefully enough time to provide a ‘satisfying’ (if hastened) conclusion.
