Plot Synopsis

BLOOD & TREASURE is a one-hour action-adventure drama series about a brilliant antiquities expert and a cunning art thief who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. Danny McNamara is a former FBI agent specializing in stolen arts and antiquities. Lexi Vaziri is a resourceful art thief who is haunted by the tragic loss of her father, which she blames on Danny. When terrorist Karim Farouk absconds with a priceless artifact and kidnaps Danny's mentor Dr. Ana Castillo, Danny recruits Lexi to help him bring Farouk to justice and rescue Ana. As they chase down Farouk, they encounter unscrupulous individuals who may either be useful allies or dangerous enemies, including Aiden Shaw, an arms dealer who acts solely in his self-interest, and Simon Hardwick, an expert at procuring pilfered artifacts. Danny and Lexi are assisted by Father Chuck, a childhood friend of Danny's who works at the Vatican Foreign Ministry in Rome. Their hunt draws the attention of Interpol agent Gwen Karlsson, who wants Farouk brought to justice, but won't allow Danny and Lexi to break international laws in the process. As they crisscross the world hunting their target, Danny and Lexi unexpectedly find themselves at the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization. The series premieres with a special two-hour episode on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 9-11pm ET/PT on CBS, and moves to its regular timeslot -- Tuesday at 10pm -- the following week.

The sophomore season of BLOOD & TREASURE debuted on Sunday, July 17, 2022, as Paramount+ released the first two episodes of the new season. In the season opener, "The Soul of Genghis Khan," as Danny and Lexi finish tracking down the last of Farouk's black market antiquities, they begin to make plans for their future. But their plans are derailed when the Vatican is attacked by terrorists. A person from Danny's past returns, leading them on a new hunt to recover one of the greatest lost treasures of Asia, the Spirit Banner of Genghis Khan. Then, in the second episode, "Tales of the Golden Tiger," the search for Kate Reece takes Danny and Lexi to Vietnam, where they reunite with none other than Aiden Shaw. Lexi's fighting skills are put to the test as the team infiltrates the dangerous Black Lotus -- an underground fight club -- where they learn about a vicious new terrorist. Season 2 of BLOOD & TREASURE made its linear television debut on Friday, July 22, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on CBS.
On Sunday, October 2, 2022, Paramount+ released "Showdown in Hong Kong," the Season 2 finale of BLOOD & TREASURE. Realizing they've taken the Kahn's bait - and putting the lives of millions in jeopardy - Danny and Lexi come face-to-face with the Kahn in one final battle above Hong Kong.
