The season 3 of Bad Blood series will be coming next. The season 2 is now available for streaming on Netflix. True Crime has been an uprising since the mid 2010s. Its popularity quotient has increased manifold in the last few years. It’s because whatever is seen on TV has already taken place in the underworld. (Check: Rick and Morty Season 4 .)
The same decade has also seen numerous renewals in the criminal genre. Earlier, it just used to be the typical cop procedural, and massive number of astonishingly good and grand in both artistic merit and widespread popularity before the 90s. This decade, it has changed a lot.
In a sense, the genre has been flipped this decade. The crime dramas have made it to the headlines of tv tabloids. It shows the dramatic, the tragic, and the anti-hero side instead of a typical true crime investigative series. It’s kinda regeneration of the Godfathers and Goodfellas on the silver screen.
It all started with the award-winning neo-western dark horse Breaking Bad. As usual, Netflix was quick to recognize the earning potential and the increasing interest of the audience. Thus, the streaming giant picked up the genre and shows like Narcos came into inception.
Every such show that depict the criminal organization as its forefront and core figure has been at the service’s front. These, usually, virtually depict anti-heroes. The creators have been excellent in their craft, direction, and entertainment value despite of its morally dubious nature.
Such elements in the show has made it a more lucrative body of work. Just like the USA has Narcos, the UK has Peaky Blinders, the same way Canada has come into the fray with Bad Blood. It’s a show about the drug-trading network, syndicates, and the Montreal-based Rizzuto crime family.
The first season of Bad Blood premiered on September 21, 2017 on CityTV. Since then, it has got a total of two seasons.

Much of the series’ cast is reasonably famous, but having most of the fans in Canada only. However, Kim Coates is Hollywood-famous. It’s because of his decades-long career on the big screen and a large amount of acting works which include films like Pearl Harbour, and shows like Sons of Anarchy.
