The Knick returns for Season 2 to Foxtelís Showcase on October 21.
Directed by Stephen Soderbergh, The Knick follows brilliant surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen) who pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations in 1900 at a downtown NYC hospital. The Knick, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, faces a major upheaval due to an exodus of affluent patrons, an infusion of poor patients, and gross mismanagement of its finances.
One of the hospitalís remaining stars is Thackery, who searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries while developing an unhealthy addiction to cocaine, legal at the time. Thackery is eventually paired against his will with a young doctor, Algernon Edwards (Andrť Holland), whose intelligence and at-all-costs methods rivals Thackeryís, but whose arrival is marked by contempt from fellow doctors and prejudice from patients.
Season 2 opens as The Knick faces further issues. Dr John Thackeryís absence (due to his hospitalisation for cocaine addiction), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led to the boardís decision to shutter The Knickerbocker Hospital in favor of a new building uptown.
