The Knick Season 3 Renewed

TVLine Items: The Knick Eyes Season 3, POTUS Is Getting Coffee and More

Will The Knick keep its doors open for a third season on Cinemax? It’s starting to look that way.

Although the medical drama ended Season 2 withspoiler alert! — the apparent death of Clive Owen’s Dr. Thackery, a script for the Season 3 premiere has reportedly been ordered.

“Cinemax has been in conversations with Steven Soderbergh on how we might continue with The Knick,” the network tells our sister site Variety. “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, however, would likely not return for a potential third year; he initially signed on for just two seasons (and seems to be, y’know, dead).

    Seinfeld is the comedian, Obama is the joke. No one is laughing.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Hope Guide to Surviving Life and Second Chance are going to flop. Guess the same thing goes to Lucifer (fingers crossed). Try NOT to complain if you dare.

  3. Shaun says:

    Don’t know if I’d watch Knick without Clive,he’s the main character basically!

      I disagree…. SS is the main ingredient in the show that makes it so unique. I find the whole environment so interesting. Thackery is a cool character and it’s been fun seeing medicine at the turn of the 20th Century. I’ll watch a Season 3….

    I wish Obama would stop showing up on random shows. Can’t he wait till after his term.

    • Bill says:

      What is feelings on Obama got to do with Knick???? No one cares about how you feel about Obama! He is a 2 term President. TWO TERM PRESIDENCY. OBVIOUSLY SOMEBODY LIKED HIM BEING PRESIDENT. Get over it. The Knick is a great show……with or without Thackery.

    BAD IDEA! Killing off Clive Owen.
    What’s in the peanut brains of EXEC’s today. I don’t know. They don’t know what is good. Just like Jon Snow in GOT. I have to learn not to much stock in their decision-making prowess because they “don’t know nothing.”

    Hate when I get hooked on a show & then it’s gone & we don’t even know it. I am referring to The Knick.
    Sooo is it coming back?
