Set in 1900, the first two seasons of the medical drama took place in a New York City hospital. The cast included Clive Owen, Andre Holland, and Juliet Rylance.
When asked about future plans, Soderbergh said he has a six-year plan for The Knick where every two seasons, the show completely changes:
It just became a space that was really fun to play in, because everybody was excited. Again, the economics are better. Three million people watch an episode of ‘The Knick,’ that’s a very good evening for cinemas. If three million people go see your a movie, depending on what your movie is, it’s not such a great weekend…We had a six year plan when we started ‘The Knick,’ and supposedly we’re going to pick up next fall [with] season three. We had it all mapped out. Every two years we kind of blow up the universe and start over again. I want to do it, so hopefully it’s going to get done.”
What do you think? Have you seen The Knick? Will you watch a third season?
