CBS has picked up Blood & Treasure for another season. 

The second season order comes midway through the show’s first run. The action drama from Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia stars Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas as its leads.

News of the renewal were confirmed by the network Wednesday. 

Blood & Treasure is a fun, escapist adventure with comedic elements filmed in multiple locales around the world that has been a great performer and a wonderful addition to our summer schedule,” Amy Reisenbach, CBS executive vp current programs, said in a statement.

“We’ve heard the story pitch for season two and look forward to seeing all-new exploits from Russia to Southeast Asia next year.”

The action drama follows a former FBI agent (Barr) specializing in stolen antiquities who reluctantly teams with an art thief (Pernas) to catch a terrorist who funds his activities via stolen treasure. 

Michael James Shaw, Katia Winter, James Callis, Oded Fehr, Alicia Coppola, and Mark Gagliardi also star.
