Bloodline‘s cancellation has resulted in the family drama cramming storylines from Seasons 4, 5 and 6 into the final third season, but could the series have been un-cancelled?
“Netflix has been a great place to work and to do the series, and they’re the buyer. So we had initially planned for there to be more seasons, just in terms of storytelling, and when they called and said they’d like us to wrap it up at the end of the third season, they had their reasons, which they didn’t share, but the feeling was it’s a great opportunity to tell 10 more episodes of a story that we love and care deeply about and actually be able to provide an ending for the series.
Despite some fist-shaking, Kessler prefers to look on the bright side:
It’s always met with a little bit of, ‘Wait a second, we thought this might be going longer and have more real estate in terms of storytelling time.’ But we feel very excited about this season and how the whole series comes to a conclusion.”
The 10-episode third and final season of Bloodline releases Friday, May 26, 2017 on Netflix.
