EXCLUSIVE: Bloodline is back for a second season on May 27 and today Netflix dropped a sneak peek at the upcoming 10 episodes of the Emmy-nominated series at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys event in Hollywood. Introduced by star Linda Cardellini just now, the trailer reveals that for the Rayburn family, in the words of Ben Mendelsohn’s seemingly dead Danny, “You’re damned if you do, you’re damned if you don’t” – literally, after the events of last season.
With Cardellini, Mendelsohn, Kyle Chandler and Norbert Leo Butz as the Rayburn siblings and Sissy Spacek as the matriarch of the Florida Keys hotel-owning family, the series created by Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman debuted all of its 13-episode first season on March 20 last year.
This upcoming season sees consequences come to haunt the Rayburns and especially the Chandler-portrayed John, a local lawman who has committed a terrible crime. Add to that more revelations and surprises from black sheep Danny’s past like his supposed son Nolan, played by Owen Teague. John Leguizamo and Andrea Riseborough have also joined the series as parts of Danny’s past that have some very real moves to make.
Season 1 of Bloodline saw Chandler and Mendelsohn nominated for Primetime Emmys as Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, respectively.
