There’s no longer any question as to whether Bloodline will get a third season — Netflix announced today that the Rayburn family drama has been renewed. Moving forward, fans can instead wonder: The Keys or not the Keys?
The Rayburns’ dark secrets have been the subject of the Netflix original series for two seasons so far, and what they’ve been hiding has been far from small. The dark series deals with drugs, trafficking, and homicide, including the season 1 murder of — spoiler alert — Danny Rayburn (played by Ben Mendelsohn) at the hands of his brother John (Kyle Chandler). The guilty brother spent season 2 coping with his actions and trying to hide the truth, but as things spiraled out of control at the end of the season, he took off.
The official Bloodline Twitter account shared an image that hinted at changes ahead. As in the finale, John is shown driving his truck toward a sign that says, “Now leaving the Keys.”

Bloodline season 3 will consist of 10 more episodes, reports Variety. The show’s creators-slash-executive producers, Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler, will again serve as directors.
“Todd, Daniel, and Glenn have created a riveting family saga featuring one of the most talented ensembles in the history of television. We can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for the all-too-human Rayburns,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content, according to Variety.
The skilled actors who play the Rayburns, living and dead, will be back as well, including Chandler, Mendelsohn, Sissy Spacek, Linda Cardellini, and Norbert Leo Butz. No release date has been revealed yet, but Netflix plans to premiere season 3 in 2017.
