Blood and Treasure is the action-adventure drama series on CBS starring Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas. The first series is currently still airing with episode nine airing on Tuesday, July 9. There are 11 episodes in the series altogether, so fans are curious to know whether the show will be back for a second series.
Will there be another series of Blood and Treasure?
Yes, there is good news for Blood and Treasure fans, season two is happening.
CBS confirmed the news at the end of June 2019 that Blood and Treasure would be returning.
The second series has been given the green light before the first season has even come to an end.
Amy Reisenbach, Executive Vice President, Current Programs, CBS Entertainment said: “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.”

She added: “We’ve heard the story pitch for season two and look forward to seeing all-new exploits from Russia to Southeast Asia next year.”
The second season of Blood and Treasure comes as no surprise, as the show has become the number one new scripted series at CBS.
Blood and Treasure has had 5.71 million viewers so far, a 17 percent increase compared to the same time slot of summer 2018.
The first season of Blood and Treasure premiered on May 21, 2019, and will conclude on July 23.
As Blood and Treasure is part of CBS’s summer schedule, the new series is likely to follow the same release pattern as season one and will premiere in May 2020.
What will happen in Blood and Treasure season 2?
Blood and Treasure tells the story of Danny McNamara (played by Matt Barr) an antique expert and Former FBI agent and Lexi Vaziri (Sofia Pernas) an art thief.
The pair team up and try to track down criminals and terrorists using stolen artefacts, treasure and art to fund their criminal activities.
Danny and Levi travelled the world to stop crime but found themselves at the centre of a 2,000-year-old fight to save civilisation.
The new series will take place in Russia and Southeast Asia, CBS has revealed.
As the first series is still airing on CBS, it is hard to predict what will happen in the new season.
The final episode, titled Return of the Queen, will air on Tuesday, July, 23.
An official announcement on the cast for the new season has also not been made but the entire main cast is likely to return.
This means Matt Barr will reprise his role as Danny McNamara and Sofia Pernas as Lexi Vaziri.
Oded Fehr should be back as Karim Farouk and Michael James Shaw as Aiden Shaw.
Other cast members hopefully returning are Katia Winter as Gwen Karlsson, James Callis as Simon Hardwick, Alicia Coppola as Anna Castillo, and Mark Gagliardi as Father Chuck.
