The show is an intimate drama and psychological thriller about familial bonds, memories, and the past’s impact on the present.

Namit Sharma expresses."We have had a great relationship with All3Media International as we have adapted the series for the Indian market - their support in letting us make this version our own, has been enormous," Sharma said. "Our showrunner Gurmmeet Singh and director Mihir Desai have crafted the series with passion and care and we couldn’t be more proud of this fact. Dark, delicious and deceptive - 'Blood' is a family drama like no other."
