Netflix announced today that Bloodline is coming to an end after its upcoming third season in 2017. The critically-acclaimed drama was renewed for Season 3 back in July, though no mention was made at the time regarding its future - or lack thereof.

There had been some uncertainty about the show's longevity earlier this year when reports surfaced that the state of Florida, which is where the series shoots, cut its entertainment tax incentives program. With the location playing such an important role in the makeup of the show, moving it elsewhere would be out of the question, meaning production costs on future seasons would rise significantly.

Bloodline has been another strong entry in the streaming service's growing list of original series. Its captivating story line and gripping pacing hooked both viewers and critics alike, with strong performances by its impressive cast resulting in multiple Emmy nominations.

Look for the third and final season of Bloodline to release in May 2017.
