Get ready for Bloodline season 2: The Netflix series returns this May

netflix bloodline season 2 premiere
An end is in sight for Bloodline fans waiting to see what will happen next with the very complicated Rayburn family. Netflix has unveiled the premiere date for Bloodline season 2, and the wait will be over on May 27.

The series will pick up where it left off, following the Rayburns, a prominent family living in the Florida Keys, where they own and operate a hotel. Although they seem like model citizens from the outside, they’ve worked hard to conceal a dark past. And that won’t change moving forward, especially not after the events of season 1, which gave them even more to hide than ever before.

The finale showed yet another person doing another hugely bad thing: (spoiler alert!) John Rayburn (played by Kyle Chandler) drowned his older brother, Danny (Ben Mendelsohn). Presumably, covering up the crime won’t be easy, and John’s going to have to cope with all kinds of fallout from his actions, whether the consequences be emotional, legal, or both. According to Collider, Danny will appear in the series still, so we could see him in flashbacks or as a ghost.

Danny’s murder wasn’t the only curveball in the finale. A boy who claimed to be his son showed up as well, and apparently, he won’t be the only stranger from the late Rayburn’s past that we’ll be seeing in season 2, either. There will be a lot of pressure on the family, and that seems bound to cause some cracks.

The Bloodline Twitter account revealed the premiere date in a post that highlighted that there’s a lot that viewers still don’t know. No surprises there.

In addition to Chandler and Mendelsohn, Bloodline also stars Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Norbert Leo Butz, Jamie McShane, Jacinda Barrett, and Enrique Murciano. The Netflix series comes from KZK Productions and Sony Pictures Television.

Bloodline season 2 hits Netflix on May 27.

Like Netflix’s hit series One Day? Then watch these three great rom-coms shows right now
A man writes down something for a girl in One Day.

There's nothing quite as satisfying as a soapy, melodramatic romantic comedy. The bad ones are often still supremely watchable, and plenty of rom-coms prove to be much better than just plain bad. If you've been watching One Day on Netflix, you should know that it's far from the only series to steal the rom-com formula that works so well at the movies.

We've selected some other great TV rom-coms that prove as good reminders that love is real, and for all of its many difficulties, falling in love with someone can be pretty great. And, because these are TV shows and not movies, many of these rom-coms allow for more than just a single complication to develop between their central characters.

Like Ready Player One on Netflix? Then watch these three great sci-fi movies on Netflix
Tye Sheridan's Wade Watts looks up to Olivia Cooke's Art3mis in Ready Player One.

Although Ready Player One was a modest hit at the box office in 2018, it didn't capture the imagination of the public in the way that director Steven Spielberg's previous films had. Regardless, Spielberg's most recent sci-fi flick is heating up the charts as one of the most popular movies on Netflix. This demonstrates that Netflix subscribers are hungry for more sci-fi content.

The selection of the best sci-fi movies on Netflix is fairly sparse compared to some of its streaming competitors. But there are three great sci-fi movies on Netflix that should appeal to fans who loved Ready Player One. You can find our selections below.

Everything we know about Wednesday season 2
Wednesday Addams with Thing on her shoulder from Wednesday.

It took just over 30 years for The Addams Family to recapture the public's imagination after the 1991 film and its 1993 sequel, Addams Family Values. Wednesday not only reinvigorated Charles Addams' signature creations, but it also became one of Netflix's most popular shows, surpassing even Stranger Things. That's why it was appropriate that The Addams Family's Christina Ricci had a part in Wednesday season 1 that allowed her to pass the torch to the current Wednesday, Jenna Ortega, for her breakout role.

Wednesday season 2 is on the way to Netflix, and we're sharing everything we know about the upcoming season, including when it will return, what to expect, and more.
When will Wednesday season 2 be released?
2025 at the earliest. Netflix has confirmed the nearly three-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, which was pushed back because of the actors and writers strikes of 2023.
