This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of New Blood Series 2 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. BBC One is yet to make a decision on its future. Subscribe to our automatic updates below.

New series info and storyline

A new British drama series, New Blood is created and written by Anthony Horowitz, executive produced by Jill Green and hails from Eleventh Hour Films. The first three episodes of the show premiered on BBC iPlayer on June 2, 2016, and the actual broadcast premiere took place on BBC One on June 9, 2016.

The storyline follows two officers – undercover junior Serious Fraud Office investigator Stefan Kowolski (Mark Strepan) and ambitious trainee detective Rash Sayyad (Ben Tavassoli) – as they work on investigating their separate cases. Soon enough it turns out that the two cases are intertwined, and are actually two angles on one case targeting a pharmaceutical company. The two men get inadvertently drawn into a dangerous conspiracy and have to cooperate in order to uncover the truth. They don`t get off to a particularly smooth start, but being on the same side they do get a bromance-friendship going.

Viewership ratings and renewal potential

New Blood premiered to 4.34 million viewers, and has a 7.5/10 IMDb score. The numbers seem solid, however, a significant number of reviewers finds the series mediocre and unoriginal. Another issue that seems to bother at least a part of the audience is the boy band looks and personalities of the protagonists. The show is dynamic, but perhaps it tries a bit too hard to be modern and upbeat. Let`s see whether viewer interest remains strong throughout the current series, and monitor network announcements regarding the future of New Blood.
