CBS has greenlit recent drama entry “Blood & Treasure” for a second season, which concludes its inaugural season on July 16. The number of new episodes ordered has not been confirmed.
The series stars Matt Barr (“Sleepy Hollow”) as a brilliant antiquities expert who teams with a cunning art thief (Sofia Pernas, “The Brave”) to take down a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. As they crisscross the world hunting their target, they find themselves at the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.
The series stars Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas in the lead roles, along with Michael James Shaw, Katia Winter, James Callis, Oded Fehr, Alicia Coppola, and Mark Gagliardi.
“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,” said Amy Reisenbach, Executive Vice President of Current Programs at CBS Entertainment. “We’ve heard the story pitch for season two and look forward to seeing all-new exploits from Russia to Southeast Asia next year.”
