“Blood & Treasure” Renewed For Season 2

CBS has renewed Blood & Treasure for a second season. 

The action drama follows a former FBI agent specializing in stolen antiquities who reluctantly teams with an art thief to catch a terrorist who funds his activities via stolen treasure. 

Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas star as the series’ leads. Michael James Shaw, Katia Winter, James Callis, Oded Fehr, Alicia Coppola, and Mark Gagliardi round out the cast. 

Blood & Treasure is a fun, escapist adventure with comedic elements filmed in multiple locales around the world that has been a great performer and a wonderful addition to our summer schedule,” Amy Reisenbach, CBS executive vp current programs, said Wednesday in a statement. “We’ve heard the story pitch for season two and look forward to seeing all-new exploits from Russia to Southeast Asia next year.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, which hails from Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, has pulled in steady yet unspectacular ratings.
