‘The Knick’ Is Over, Season 3 Not Happening | TV News
The Knick was an incredibly compelling work from director, Steven Soderbergh, following his ‘retirement’ a few years back. Underseen but not under appreciated by its viewers who clung to the show like Soderbergh clung to gruesome images in practically every episode. Unfortunately, the dynamic, cinematic series is over barring a surgical miracle.
Following the Season 2 finale, Soderbergh hoped to reboot the show for a third season, but following his forays back into the movie world with the filming of the upcoming Logan Lucky and the development of a film based on the panama papers, alongside a new HBO project, titled Mosaic, co-star Chris Sullivan revealed the news:
“Yeah, I’ve heard it’s done. They were gonna try [to do a third season], but I’ve heard it’s done”.
While this isn’t an official death sentence, with the finale of Season 2 being a genuine endpoint to the arc that had spanned 20 episodes, it seems a fitting place to end the series. It’s possible Soderbergh could return somewhere down the line but it seems unlikely a network would be particularly interested in rebooting an underseen, often gruesome show years after an apparent ending.
If you’ve not yet seen The Knick, this is as good a time as any to catch up, especially knowing that the 20 episodes seem to be the only ones that will ever air. Yet, Soderbergh has a reputation for ‘retirements’ and other odd career choices, so there’s always hope.
