One of the famous crime series that generated rave reviews from viewers and critics alike, is Bad Blood. With 2 successful seasons completed, it’s true that the viewers are craving for more.
We take you through a synopsis of the famous Bad Blood series. Read through to find out if the much-awaited Season 3 is in the making or not.
A Peek Into The Storyline
This thrilling TV series of crime and revenge is based on the book Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto’s Last War. The storyline depicts the life of a highly infamous, Montreal-based crime family named the Rizzuto family.
Season 1 is the true depiction of their real life. Season 2 is completely fictional. The storyline is primarily set in Montreal in the early 2000s. The protagonist, Vito Rizzuto is at the zenith of his power and position, controlling the major Montreal gangs and maintaining peace within them.
Things go haywire when he is implicated in an old killing of three men in the year 1981. The series continues with many flashbacks, navigating into the lives of Vito and Declan, Vito’s right-hand man, and their rise and dominance in the world of crime.
The second season is fictional. The storyline is around Declan and his nephew Reggie, and their confrontation with the other cartels. What follows is a story of deceit, greed, revenge, and loss.
This Canadian crime drama is produced by Simon Barry. Just like the gripping storyline, the cast of the series is also notable. Vito Rizzuto is played by the award-winning Australian actor Antony LaPaglia.
Vito’s right-hand man Declan Gardiner is played by Kim Coates, who is a Canadian-American actor. The family patriarch, Nicolo Rizutto is played by the very versatile Paul Sorvino.
La Paglia was blown away by the script. All the hesitation of Paul Sorvino to play the mafia vanished when he read the script and listened to the evidence for the voice of the patriarch.
When can we expect the release?
The decision is highly dependent on the audience data and response for the second season. As per reports from the creators, 8 new episodes have already been developed for the third season of Bad Blood. However, there has been no official announcement from Simon Barry or CityTV on the third season. The arrival on Netflix can be taken as a positive sign.
Not all crime dramas can deliver an edge-of-the-seat performance. Moreover, the depiction of a real-life crime family, with their experience of sorrow and revenge needs to be justified with an exceptional cast and serious acting skills. The demand for a third season by the viewers is evident. We can definitely expect it soon.
