Blood & Treasure is an American action–adventure drama television series that premiered on CBS on May 21, 2019. It was developed by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia. The show was engaging, and viewers eagerly anticipated Season 2’s renewal. Blood & Treasure follows a bright antiquities specialist and a crafty art robber as they work together to catch a brutal terrorist who finances his attacks by stealing valuables. Danny McNamara is a former FBI agent who specialized in antiques and stolen art.
Lexi Vaziri is a cunning art thief who is troubled by her father’s death, which she accuses on Danny. When terrorist Karim Farouk escapes with a rare artifact and Danny’s mentor, Dr. Anna Castillo, is kidnapped, Danny enlists Lexi’s help in apprehending Farouk and rescuing Anna.
Danny and Lexi find themselves in the middle of a 2,000-year-old fight over the cradle of civilization as they tour the globe in search of their victims. There is only one season of the show available currently, with a total of 12 episodes.
Blood And Treasure Season 2 Renewal Updates
CBS renewed the show for a second season in June 2019. So it’s brilliant that we’ll get to see another fantastic season of this show. Season 2 was postponed due to the pandemic, which affected a number of shows. So far, there hasn’t been any official announcement on when Season 2 will be released. However, we anticipate seeing it in late 2021 or early 2022.

Executive producer Matthew Federman answered to a supporter on Twitter who questioned about the show’s status by posting on May 18, 2020. “We’ll get back to shooting and finish the season when it’s deemed safe. No air date yet.” Filming for season two began in October 2019.
But, this tweet confirmed that the show wasn’t done filming at that time, but it’s been almost a year since that tweet was made, and no further details have been provided. Well, it’s possible that the show is in production and will take some time to complete, so we’ve provided an estimated release date above. We’ll post any official announcements about the release date here as soon as it’s revealed.

What Happened At The End Of Season 1?
Everyone is curious about Season 2’s plot, but there has been no official release. However, the upcoming plot can be predicted from Season 1’s finale. As a result of Alina and a squad of Brotherhood members being killed by hidden explosives while attempting to destroy the bio-weapon, Reece determines not to call off the reveal. Gwen examines Ghazal’s papers and discovers that Reece not only assisted Farouk in eluding Danny in the past, but also assassinated Reza when he uncovered his secret.
When Gwen informs that the bio-weapon hasn’t been eliminated, Danny puts the pieces together: Simon is the genuine Farouk, Reece’s biological son, who has taken control of the terrorists in order to avenge his father. Roarke kidnaps Danny, Lexi, and Chuck, but Shaw saves them. In a battle, Lexi subdues Roarke, while Danny and the cops take out Taj and his guys.
Danny considers letting Reece die from the toxin, but Lexi administers the antidote so that he can stand trial for his crimes. Danny, donning an Interpol badge, leads a task force to apprehend Simon a few weeks later, promising Danny and Lexi that they will see each other again. We anticipate that they will meet again in the upcoming season.
