Netflix is canceling 'Bloodline' after 3 seasons in a surprise move
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix informed "Bloodline's" producers, Sony Pictures Television, that the third season will be its last. Additionally, the streaming company cut the season's episodes from 13 to 10.Season three is set to premiere in 2017.
THR reports that the decision could be the result of rising production costs on the show after Florida decided to end its tax incentives for entertainment projects shooting in the state. "Bloodline" was shot out of Islamorada, part of the Florida Keys islands.The reported cancellation is also surprising since Netflix doesn't have a long record of ending its original series. To date, it has only canceled horror drama "Hemlock Grove" and "Lilyhammer," a Norwegian-American drama.
"Bloodline" actor Kyle Chandler has earned two Emmy nominations for playing a man who, along with his siblings, is forced to hide family secrets dredged up by the return of their troubled brother.Netflix and Sony TV representatives didn't immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
