While the first season of “Bloodline” premiered on Netflix on March 20, 2015, the sophomore edition didn’t drop until May 27, 2016. That latter date was only four days before the deadline for Emmy consideration. With lead Kyle Chandler reaping an Emmy bid and supporting player Ben Mendolsohn winning last year, the streaming service decided to go late again this awards season. The third and final season of 10 episodes will drop on May 26 and the final trailer has just been released (watch above).
“Bloodline” is created and written by Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman, the same team behind the Emmy-winning “Damages.” In addition to Emmy-champs Chandler and Mendelsohn who play brothers John and Danny, the cast features Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek as their mother Sally as well as two-time Tony-winner Norbert Leo Butz and Emmy-nominee Linda Cardellini as their brother Kevin and sister Meg respectively.
The third season picks up immediately after the end of the second with John on the run as the police close in on the truth that he had killed Danny while Kevin is in shock that his attack on Meg’s one-time boyfriend has left him dead.
