The journey for Blood & Treasure has come to a conclusion. According to TVLine, Blood & Treasure, which had relocated to Paramount+ after airing its first season on CBS, has been canceled after two seasons with no plans for a third.
It initially debuted on CBS in 2019, where it had initially renewed for a second season until it was subsequently announced that it would switch to the streaming service. Season 2 of Paramount+ debuted last summer, and the finale will air in October 2022. The show’s future remained uncertain after that.
Stephen Scaia and Matthew Federman wrote Blood & Treasure. It depicts the tale of an antique expert and an art thief who work together to track down a terrorist whose activities are funded by looted goods. In addition to James Callis, Katia Winter, Michael James Shaw, Oded Fehr, Alicia Coppoila, Mark Gagliardi, and Michelle Lee, Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas also star in the film.
Along with Mark Vlasic, Marc Webb, Howard T. Owens, Ben Silverman, Taylor Elmore, Irene Litinsky, and Joel Rice, Federman, and Scaia executive produced the film.
Getting Season 2 Made in Itself Was a Big Win
The production of Season 2 encountered difficulties since, like many others, it had been affected by the pandemic. Given how difficult it was to film a series of that scope during the events of the time, Scaia considered the completion of the second season to be a “miracle.” The fact that the programme won’t be getting a third season may be frustrating in some ways, but there may be some solace in the knowledge that it could have just gotten one season.
Before the show was officially cancelled, Scaia told TVLine, “the miracle for me was being able to finish that second season during a pandemic, travelling the world, shooting on three different continents over however many months” — including one government-mandated break — “and everyone made it through healthy.”
Without regard to where the plot develops further, “We went through so much to get it on screen for everyone, and I believe that’s a win in and of itself.” Federman is also quoted by the outlet as saying, in a similar manner, how proud he was of the cast and crew for finishing season 2 and letting the audience see it, finding some pleasure in that but realising that the future was unknown.

I’m not sure what the future holds, but I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish with this show, shooting our brief action/adventure on four continents while dealing with a pandemic, he said. “We are grateful for our CBS partners who believed in us to pull it off and for our incredible writers, cast, crew, and staff.
It truly was the experience of a lifetime. I also want to thank everyone who watched and shared the video. This show is only the most recent in a long line of cancellations that have recently occurred on all of the streaming providers combined.
The news that Disney+ has cancelled Big Shot and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, both of which had two seasons, coincides with the cancellation of Blood & Treasure. Don’t anticipate a third season of Blood & Treasure, which you can watch on Paramount+.
“Blood & Treasure” won’t be coming back for a third season on CBS or Paramount+. Variety, a US-based media house, has confirmed the news.
