Blood & Treasure has reached the end of the road. TVLine says that the show has been canceled after two seasons and that there are no plans for a third season at Paramount+, where Blood & Treasure moved after its first season on CBS. It first came out in 2019 on CBS, where it was renewed for a second season. Later, it was announced that it would move to a streaming service. Season 2 started last summer on Paramount+, and the last episode will come out in October 2022. Since then, nobody knew what would happen to the show.
Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia came up with the idea for Blood & Treasure. It’s about an antiques expert and an art thief who work together to find a terrorist who uses stolen treasure to fund his operations. Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas lead the cast, which also includes James Callis, Katia Winter, Michael James Shaw, Oded Fehr, Alicia Coppoila, Mark Gagliardi, and Michelle Lee.
Federman, Scaia, Mark Vlasic, Marc Webb, Howard T. Owens, Ben Silverman, Taylor Elmore, Irene Litinsky, and Joel Rice were the executive producers, along with Mark Vlasic and Marc Webb.
Getting Season 2 Made in Itself Was a Big Win
The production of Season 2 was hard because, like many other things, it had been messed up by the pandemic. Scaia thought it was a “miracle” that the second season was even finished, given how hard it was to film a show of that size and scope when so much was going on in the world. It may be disappointing in some ways that the show won’t be given a third season, but there may be some comfort to be had from knowing that it could have been limited to season 1.
“The miracle for me was being able to finish that second season during a pandemic while traveling the world and shooting on three different continents over however many months,” Scaia told TVLine before the show was officially canceled. “Everyone made it through healthy,” he said. “We went through so much to get it on screen for everyone, and I think that in and of itself is a victory, no matter what happens next in the story.”
Federman was also quoted as saying that he was proud of the cast and crew for finishing season 2 and letting fans see it. He took some joy in that, but he also said that the future was uncertain.
“I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m very proud of what we were able to do with this show, shooting our little action/adventure on four continents and through a pandemic,” he said. “Thanks to our partners at CBS, who trusted us to do it, and to our amazing writers, cast, crew, and staff. It was by far the most exciting thing I’ve ever done. And thanks to everyone who watched and helped get the word out.”
This is just the latest show to be taken off of streaming services. The cancellation of Blood & Treasure comes at the same time as the news that both Big Shot and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, which each had two seasons, have been canceled by Disney+. Blood & Treasure is available on Paramount+, but there won’t be a third season.
