10-episode debut season begins on Aug. 8
Cinemax has ordered Season 2 of “The Knick” before the show has even debuted. The announcement was made Thursday at the pay-TV channel's Television Critics Association panel.
The show follows the surgeons, nurses and staff of the Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900. Eve Hewson and Andre Holland also star; Jack Amiel and Michael Begler co-created the series, as well as write and executive produce.
“The Knick” was not the first show of the day to get an early second season renewal: “Matador” from Robert Rodriguez‘s El Rey Network also announced a Season 2 at TCA.
