'The Knick' Not Moving Forward With More Seasons *SPOILERS*

In case you had been looking for it, too.

Variety, Elizabeth Wagmeister, Brent Lang

“The Knick” last aired in December 2015, wrapping up its second season by seemingly killing off its main character lead by star Clive Owen. However, Variety was first to report that a script and outline for Season 3 had been ordered with creators Michael Begler and Jack Amiel both set to return as executive producers and writers.

Insiders say that at one point, discussions were had for a double-renewal that would take the series through a third and fourth season, which would move to an entirely new time period with an entirely new cast, but set in the same hospital. The idea was for the show to have jumped 20 years ahead to the 1920’s for Season 3, and then jump forward another 20 years for subsequent seasons, showing the medical advancements through the decades. As part of the plan, Soderbergh was going to direct each episode.

The first two seasons starred Owen as Dr. Thackery, who in the Season 2 finale, appeared to die on the table, after a botched attempt to perform surgery on himself. Following the episode, when asked if he is indeed dead, Owen told Variety, “It certainly looks that way.”

Good bye, Thack! You sure gave 'Goodfellas' a run for drug-induced mania!

2. Sure does...

Why, when a novel idea for a tv show finally makes it to air, do they cut it off as soon as possible?
