The Knick ended its second season on Cinemax on Friday night, and the finale ended with a shocker that could cause some major changes for season three. The finale featured what appeared to be the death of the series’ main character, Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen).
Cinemax has not yet ordered a third season for The Knick yet, but the network is exploring the possibility of a third season. According to Variety, the network has ordered a script for the third season premiere and an outline for the entire season.
Cinemax said the following in a statement about the order:
“Cinemax has been in conversations with Steven Soderbergh on how we might continue with The Knick. When first conceived, the series was always meant to be presented in a two-year story arc, and Steven has been meeting with the writers to discuss how to proceed.”
Owen has made it clear that he only intended to do two seasons of the series. Right now, it’s looking likely he will not return if the series is brought back for a third season.
