Season one of Cinemax’s dramatic series The Knick continues with four new episodes in September 2014. The critically acclaimed series debuted on August 8, 2014, kicking off a 10 episode season one run and Cinemax is so happy with the numbers generated by The Knick that they’ve greenlit the show for a second season.

The Knick stars Clive Owen, Andre Holland, Jeremy Bobb, Juliet Rylance, Eve Hewson, Michael Angarano, Eric Johnson, Chris Sullivan, Cara Seymour, Maya Kazan, David Fierro, Grainger Hines, Leon Addison Brown, and Matt Frewer.

The Plot:

New York City, 1900: The Knickerbocker Hospital is home to groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who push the boundaries of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The newly appointed leader of the surgery staff is the brilliant, arrogant renegade Dr. John Thackery, whose addiction to cocaine and opium is trumped only by his ambition for medical discovery and renown among his peers.

Into the all-white staff and patient hospital comes the equally gifted Harvard graduate Dr. Algernon Edwards, who must fight for respect while trying to navigate the racially charged city. Trying to maintain its reputation for quality care while realizing a profit, the Knickerbocker makes an effort to attract wealthy clientele, while literally struggling to keep the lights on.
