OMNI Television’s gritty, original crime drama series Blood and Water returns with eight new half-hour episodes of Season One, premiering Sunday, Nov. 13 at 10:30 p.m. ET (check local listings). Produced in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, this next block of episodes follows Detective Jo Bradley (Steph Song) on an all-new murder case, entrenched in a mysterious web of lies leading back to the Xie family.
In the next eight episodes, Detective Evan Ong (Byron Mann, The Big Short), a decorated police hero formerly of the Guns and Gangs Unit, joins Detective Jo (Song) as they’re thrust back into the Xie family orbit.
