The plot of Bloodline
The Rayburns seem like an absolutely ordinary family. They run a successful little hotel in Florida Keys and live a normal life. Until one day, their “black sheep” oldest sibling Danny comes back home reminding of the old wounds and unpleasant secrets. His criminal past threatens the good name of the entire family. The intensity of the drama is quite predictable, but Bloodline is also made in a really professional way, which makes it compelling and sophisticated.
Reception and renewal
It was received positively by both the critics and general audience. For instance, its Metacritic score was 75 of 100, and it was compared to another highly acclaimed series, Breaking Bad. All this led to the renewal of Bloodline for the second season in an official announcement this March. The show will be out on Netflix in late winter or early spring 2016.
