If you’re still upset about Sons of Anarchy leaving Netflix next month, we’ve got good news for you! Kim Coates, who played Tig Trager on Sons, will be cruising on into Netflix when his Canadian drama Bad Blood becomes available on their streaming catalog.
Bad Blood has currently been on the air in Canada for two seasons but on December 7th, just one week after Sons’ departure, the first season will be available to binge. The series is based on a book called Business or Blood: Mafia Boss Vito Rizzuto’s Last War written by Antonio Nicaso and Peter Edwards. It follows Coates as Declan Gardiner, the right-hand man to crime family boss Vito Rizzuto (Anthony LaPaglia). When Vito is released from prison after a 31-year sentence, he seeks revenge on those who killed his family and friends while he was on the inside – starting with Declan.
The series was created and produced by Simon Barry and premiered on CityTV last September. It features a supporting cast of Paul Sorvino, Enrico Colantoni, Lisa Berry, Eric Hicks, Anna Hopkins, and Daniel Kash.
Since wrapping his role on Sons in 2014, Coates has appeared in multiple films including The Land, Strange Weather, Adventure Club, and Cold Brook. Last year he guest starred on Netflix’s Godless for five episodes as well as SYFY’s Ghost Wars.
Be sure to catch up on Sons of Anarchy before it leaves Netflix on December 1st and tune into Bad Blood when it hits Netflix on December 7th!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
