Playing What You Need to Know Before Binge-Watching Netflix's 'Bloodline'

Dramatic thriller Bloodline is now available for streaming on Netflix and ET talked to the stars, including Sissy Spacek and Kyle Chandler, to find out what fans have to look forward to.

The series focuses on the Rayburn family, headed by Robert (Sam Shepard) and Sally (Spacek), who run an inn in the Florida Keys. When the family's oldest son Danny (Ben Mendelsohn), the black sheep of the family, returns home, all hell breaks loose as his siblings John (Chandler), Meg (Linda Cardellini) and Kevin (Norbert Leo Butz) are suspicious about his motives.

Spacek described the series as a "family drama" and a "psychological thriller," while Mendelsohn hinted that things "come to a head pretty quickly."

"Every family has dark secrets," Chandler told ET. "That's why people are going to tune in."

The series starts with a steady pace but quickly steps on the gas with jaw-dropping reveals. Chandler advised viewers to pay close attention from the beginning, so as not to get lost when the story picks up speed.

"It's very easy to watch and I found it very compelling," he said. "I think also the first episode is the most important of the series. It's got a lot to tell."
