Steven Soderbergh has provided a current update on The Knick Seasons 3 and 4.
“It was always conceived in two-year chunks. The writers met yesterday to talk about what year three and four would look like — when would it take place, who are the characters. We always imagined every two years we would annihilate what came before and start over. And that’s what we’re doing now.”
With Cinemax waiting to hear his plans for the period drama’s future, Soderbergh revealed that he envisions The Knick as a 6 season series and hopes to see it through:
“I would like to keep going. I always thought of it as a six-year thing if we were allowed to continue. I hope we can figure it out. I hope we come up with something that I look at it and go, OK, I want to spend another two years of my life on that. Because that’s really the question. It’s an intense experience — rewarding, but I want to make sure we want to keep the bar at the same height or higher.”
Barring a collapse, it seems The Knick wont be in limbo for too long, though the Cancellation Reaper is an opportunist.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of The Knick Seasons 3, 4 and beyond…
