The only thing which could assist us is the numbers that as a rule never lie. Let's get started with a bad news. Blood & Treasure have received poor or even negative ratings from critics. At the same time, it's worth noting that the viewers have appreciated the show in general.
On Rotten Tomatoes, Blood & Treasure Season 1 holds a score of 4.5/10 and a 38% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the debut season of the action-adventure series at 3.9/5 and have given a 75% rating. On Metacritic, the show has received mixed reviews, with an overall score of 52/100. Also worth noting that the reviews were very controversial. On IMDb, the show Blood & Treasure holds a score of 5.8/10 based on 433 votes (to date), the figure which characterizes Blood & Treasure as a mediocre television series.
As you can see, the picture doesn't seem to be in favor of renewal. Yet if we take a look at the television ratings, the picture becomes much more clear. The pilot episode of the series has drawn 5.62 million viewers with a 0.6/3 key demo rating/share among adults (P18-49). Not so bad, isn't it, especially given that a sophomore episode has garnered the same amount of viewers. The viewing figures are comparable with those of American Housewife, for instance, which has attracted 5.66 million viewers during its second season premiere, and, by the way still remains in the ABC lineup. As a result, everything looks not so bad for the debut season of Blood & Treasure.
Summing up, in spite of the ambivalent response from critics and viewers, CBS's freshman Blood & Treasure has gained enough viewing audience, the factor, which as a rule plays a key role in the decision on renewal. Therefore, we tend to believe that Blood & Treasure Season 2 is due to happen on CBS. All we need is just keep waiting until the network announces its decision.
Blood & Treasure Season 2 Release Date
Blood & Treasure Season 2 is yet to be announced, as mentioned above. In spite of this, we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, and, on the contrary, we tend to believe that CBS should make a decision in favor of renewal. In such a case, the next season will likely start broadcasting next spring, in May 2020. Though, we don't rule out the fall premiere, which could take place already in 2019.
We thereby are tracking down the official sources to inform you about any reliable data on the subject. As soon as CBS publishes any additional data on the subject of renewal, as well as reveals a specific release date for Blood & Treasure Season 2, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
