Cinemax has officially cancelled The Knick after two seasons. RenewCancelTV has confirmed that the Steven Soderbergh medical drama will not return for the planned third and fourth seasons.
Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming, said of the decision to pull the plug on The Knick:
After a critically acclaimed two-season run of The Knick on Cinemax, we will not be going forward with additional seasons of the series. Despite our pride in and affection for the series, as well as our respect for and gratitude towards Steven Soderbergh and his team, we have decided to return Cinemax to its original primetime series fare of high-octane action dramas, many of which will be internationally co-produced.”
