Paget Brewster On Board For Blood and Treasure Season 2
Paget Brewster from Criminal Minds would be joining Blood and Treasure Season 2 for a recurring role. Brewster is coming in to play a resourceful nun in Rome with a light sense of humor.

He knows that the Nuns are the ears and eyes of Churches, and he would get some information. Brewster was last seen in the fifteenth and the final season of Criminal Minds. She was also a part of Mom & Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood.
Blood and Treasure Season 2: Delayed Release Date
The show was renewed for Blood and Treasure Season 2 in July 2019. Everybody expected the show to return in the Summer of 2020, but it looks like the show will be delayed. The show isn’t 100% complete at the moment. Matthew Federman used his twitter to update everyone that isn’t complete, and they will come back to complete the show when everything is safe. The show will face many new challenges because of the international locations.
Of course, CBS could release the show in parts, but that will come in with some problems too. For example, the script wasn’t made for a two-part season? Also, CBS is eager to save the series for as long as they can and give it a prime time night slot. We will update the show as soon as we get any information. So you stay tuned.
