“Dr. Death ss 2”: release date, announcement
The season 2 of the crime drama “Dr. Death” has not yet been announced. However, it is known that the podcasts that formed the basis of TV shows have a continuation. This means that there is material for creating a new season. On the other hand, the season 1 ratings also showed that viewers accepted the picture and they are ready to spend their time watching the stories of strange and dangerous doctors. In this regard, it can be assumed that if the premiere of season 2 takes place, then no earlier than autumn 2022. After all, the shooting of new episodes, as of the summer of 2021, has not yet begun.
With ambition, confidence and a desire to make a name for himself to the whole world, Christopher Duntsch begins to engage in neurosurgery – the most complex of the branches of medicine. Successful operations allow him to take an honorable place in the Medical Society. Only in the hospital where he works, around every corner, colleagues whisper about his failures.
The more operations remain behind the doctor’s back, the clearer are the traces of his negligence. Doctors Kirby and Henderson decide to investigate how true the rumors are. The first person interviewed by the doctors is clinic worker Josh Baker, who has assisted Duntsch with surgery on several occasions.
He tells how he tried to draw attention to the mistakes of the surgeon, which ultimately drove Duntsch to a rage. The surgeon was confident in his own righteousness and hated to be talked to during the work. In the end, Josh decided it was none of his business.
The operated patients began to complain of various pains. One day, a simple operation ended with Duntsch deliberately crushing Madeline Beyer’s vertebrae, although a completely different procedure was required. This led to paralysis and further operations. Determined in no way to go back to Duntsch, Madeline pleaded for a transfer to another doctor.
After this incident, Christopher was suspended from work and charged with negligence. Dodgy, Duntsch has managed to escape justice several times, but the help of his ex-girlfriend and colleague Kim Morgan proved invaluable to the police. Lawsuits, conviction of innocence and dozens of crippled lives – that’s all Duntsch will remember behind bars.
The first season fully showed the fate of a bad doctor, from the very beginning it was clear who the antagonist was, and soon the motives became clear. Who will be the next hero of the picture? And will the creators decide to release the next season?
