When Can We Expect Bad Blood Season 3?

Here’s everything we know about Bad Blood Season 3. To begin, up until season 1, when it was planned to be a miniseries, Bad Blood was a textbook mafia drama based on Peter Edwards and Antonio Nicaso’s research cataloged in the book “Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto’s Last War”. The second season of the show depicts the exploits and trials of Declan. He’s Vito Rizzuto’s right hand and the chosen heir to the Rizzuto crime empire, which is a fictional breakaway storyline from the contents of the book. Similarly, the show’s creative team is expected to come up with a more original plot for the third season.

Since the mid-2010s, true crime has experienced a massive upsurge in popularity as a genre of non-fiction television entertainment. Because the genre’s by now thrilling set-piece of a threatening gangland hanging like a black shroud of a setting accounts for the majority of its blunt and shadowy charm, the same decade has seen a massive renewal of interest in criminality as a collective genre. Now, without any further ado, let’s begin covering this potential third season of Bad Blood.

Bad Blood Season 2 Finale Recap

Declan orders Bobby to beat Nats severely in a jail cell and shows Enzo a picture of the results, pressuring Enzo with more beatings unless he informs his family. Enzo finally gives in. He tells Nellie at the RCMP station that he will speak with her only after his son is relocated to a minimal-level prison. When Domenic comes to the Langanas to notify Enzo, Christian becomes enraged and shoots him. Teresa instructs Alex to investigate whether Declan has any ties to Bobby. Teresa’s fingerprints on her misplaced lighter were matched to fingerprints from Italy by the RCMP.

Trouble Looms In

Nellie obtains an anonymous letter with the Toronto condo address. She raids the building, but the Laganas escape through a maze of rooms, eluding the RCMP team. Declan and the Sunwinds, who’d been waiting for the raid, are chasing them down. There is a shootout. Following Christian’s wounding of Rose, Declan shoots Christian to death. Teresa, who is hysterical, cradles her brother but is hauled away by Siro; the two manage to flee. Declan bandages Rose’s minor wound, and they become intimate back at the reserve. Alex informs Teresa and Siro that he has located the reserve just when they’re about to abandon Toronto by helicopter. Teresa postpones her trip to find Declan.


The bikers brutally murder Enzo and his bodyguard at a motel on Teresa’s orders, and a biker prison inmate kills Nats. Declan discovers the drugs that Twix had been skimming from biker shipments. He realizes that the bikers’ opposition to him stems from Teresa’s loss of purity. Ken Tucker interrogates Bobby at the prison after learning of the bikers’ murder of Nats. Declan is kept in the dark by Ken. Reggie, Rose, and Declan are ambushed by the bikers at the reserve. Declan is given the option of having Teresa kill either Rose or Reggie. When Declan becomes unable to make a decision, Reggie steps in and kills him.

Teresa fires a single shot at Declan, who collapses in agony as she leaves for boarding a helicopter. Twix arrives and kills biker boss Alex to stop him from murdering Rose, only to be killed himself moments later. Despite his injuries, Declan manages to kill Siro and Teresa. Rose tells the cops that her brother was stealing from the bikers and that Declan had nothing to do with the gunfight when they arrived. Meanwhile, the RCMP closes down the organized crime division because all of Nellie’s leads are dead. Declan buries Reggie alongside his mother in the plot that was originally intended for him.

Where Was Bad Blood Filmed?

The bulk of the series was filmed in Sudbury, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec. These locations in Canada are prime locations for filming because the local government chooses to give tax exemptions to incentivize investments in the area. Also, Montreal and Sudbury are frequently used as filmed locations for other productions like “Resident Evil,” North of Normal, Life of Pi, The Jackal, and 12 Monkeys.

Who’s Behind Bad Blood?

Simon Barry was approached by New Metric Media with an idea about making a movie revolving around the Rizzuto crime family. After burying the rights to “Business or Blood” by Antonio Nicaso and Pete Edwards, Barry joined forces with Michael Konyves. He’s the brains behind productions like “Solar Attack” from 2005 and “Fire and Ice: The Dragon Chronicles” from 2008. As for Simon Barry, he’s produced 2016’s ongoing “Van Helsing,” “Continuum,” and “Ghost Wars”.

After several rounds of talks, Konyves and Barry chose to make a six-part miniseries instead of a film and met with the book’s authors on several occasions to get a grip on the feel around the anecdotes of the characters and how to best develop them. For one part, doing a mob series always requires changing a few things in regards to names, places, and dates for legal reasons. For another, Vito’s prison tenure forced the producers to create a fictional character (Declan) to tell the perspective of the story from the Rizzuto family and took inspiration from the Mario Puzo character from The Godfather.

Bad Blood, which was written and produced by Simon Barry, has a fair amount of celebrity support. The patriarch of the Rizutto family was played by Anthony LaPaglia from “Without a Trace” and “Autumn In New York” in the first two seasons. Whereas in the second season, Declan Gardiner, Vito’s second-in-command, was played by none other than Kim Coates. On that point, Kim Coates is relatively speaking Hollywood-famous. Thanks to his year’s career on the big screen and an exceptionally large body of works.

Despite the fact that the lead character in Bad Blood has changed in the two seasons that have already aired, Kim Coates will almost certainly reprise her role as the protagonist in the forthcoming tentative third season. Louis Ferreira, Melanie Scrofano, and Ryan Mcdonald are expected to return to the show in their respective roles. However, keep in mind that this is still an educated guess that could change depending on their acting contracts or where the story will go in the next season. Neither of which has been revealed to any extent. In the next section, we share with you details on the potential renewal status and release date of Bad Blood season three.
