There’s nothing worse than a series that ends up getting popular and inevitably runs itself into the ground trying to find more material to create new seasons with.
So that’s why we’re pretty happy to hear that Netflix original ‘Bloodline’ will only run three seasons, with the upcoming third season being its last, as reported by THR. The first two seasons are both incredible, and we certainly can’t wait foe third season, but let’s be honest, a series like this needs to have a conclusion written in advance. Networks, take note, Netflix and the ‘Bloodline’ writers here are doing the right thing, even if it’s a tough pill to swallow cancelling a show at the height of its success.
Television networks are under incredible pressure to pick winning shows, and its getting more and more competitive, so when you land a winner, it’s nearly impossible to bring it to a conclusion. Ask NBC just how difficult it was in the early 00s after ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Friends’ both drew to a close.
For those who haven’t given ‘Bloodline’ a shot yet, we highly recommend giving it a shot. The first season is slow, but the character development and performances from the cast are absolutely superb. Family black sheep Danny quickly becomes a classic drama villain, while at the same time being able to draw in sympathy from both some members of his family as well as the audience.
We’ll certainly be sad to see the Rayburn family drama come to a close next year, but we also respect the decision by Netflix and co. to bring the series to a close on a high note.
