The show had been delayed due to the pandemic but is expected to arrive next year
Blood & Treasure is an American action-adventure drama series that premiered on CBS. The series was inspired by popular movies of the treasure hunting genre such as Indiana Jones and National Treasure, and hence contains numerous exhilarating action-packed moments, as well as bits of drama and humour. It was created by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia.
The lead characters are two contrasting personalities – one being an expert on antiquities as well as a former FBI agent and the other being a cunning art burglar. The two form an unlikely alliance to catch a terrorist named Karim Farouk who steals priceless art to fund his terrorist activities. To catch this person, they have to travel across multiple countries, without knowing that they are setting off a two thousand-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.
The show was all set to arrive in May 2020 but due to the pandemic it got heavily delayed. Since it’s now the final month of 2020, it’s safe to assume that season two will come in early or mid 2021. A trailer for the second season hasn’t been released yet either.
The leads are Sofia Pernas who plays Lexi Vaziri, the art thief and Matt Barr who plays Danny McNamara, the art expert and former agent. Other prominent cast members include Katia Winter as Gwen Karlsson, Michael James Shaw as Aiden Shaw, Oded Fehr as Karim Farouk, and James Callis as Simon Hardwick.
The primary cast members will be returning for the second season as well. The first part chose locations as Rome, Turin, Venice, and Marrakesh among others, and season two will have Russia and Southeast Asia as their primary locations.
