Overview

The second season of THE KNICK is directed by Steven Soderbergh, and starring Clive Owen as John Thackery, a brilliant but drug-addled surgeon who pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race in a 1900s NYC hospital.

More Information

THE KNICK, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, faces an upheaval at the onset of season 2, as Thackery's absence (he's being hospitalized for cocaine addiction in New England), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led the hospital board to decide to shutter the Knick's downtown location and move uptown. As the relocation plans go forward, Algernon Edwards (André Holland) - the gifted black surgeon whose affair with benefactor Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) ended with an abortion and her marriage to a wealthy white heir in season one - jockeys to become Thackery's successor as Chief of Surgery, while fellow doctors, nurses, nuns and administrators grapple with numerous challenges, both at work and in their private lives.
All ten episodes of the award-winning medical drama series' second season, set in 1901, is available in this collection. Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen) continues to perform cutting-edge operations, including an electrical brain stimulation and a devised procedure to seperate conjoined twins, all while battling a heroin addiction that is becoming increasingly dire. Meanwhile, the gifted Dr. Algernon Edwards (Andre Holland), who has ascended to the role of acting chief of surgery, continues to face racially-charged disrespect while dealing with the reappearance of his strong-willed wife, Opal (Zaraah Abrahams). Subplots include Nurse Elkins' (Eve Hewson) search for personal and professional fulfillment, a fiery, near-death experience and various other events in and out of Knickerbocker Hospital with grave consequences. All ten episodes are directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh.
