Deadline reported that Netflix plans on releasing the show sometime in 2016, as production is set to start later this year.
As it stands now this is the fastest a Netflix original has been renewed for a second season following its initial release. Netflix is usually pretty hush hush about the success of individual shows, but this is a pretty clear indication that Bloodline is a smash hit. As someone who is just wrapping up the first season, I can say with full confidence that Bloodline is certainly worth a watch, as it is almost impossible to stop after the first few episodes.
Taking some cues from shows like Lost and True Detective, Bloodline meshes beautiful storytelling, flashbacks and flash forwards alongside a beautiful beach paradise to create a mysterious yet appealing setting. The family dynamics among the Rayburn clan is complicated yet understood.
Without spoiling too much, in some senses, I do kind of wish Bloodline was left alone as a one season show, if only selfishly not to run the risk of destroying a phenomenal story. It’s possible that the second season could be just as strong, but it is going to be tough to beat the first.
