Before the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning show The Knick launches its second season October 16, exclusively on Cinemax, the first season of the edgy drama series will be available in a special presentation on the HBO digital platforms HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand, as well as online affiliate portals, for a limited ten-week period, starting Friday, August 14. Non-HBO and Cinemax subscribers will even have a chance to catch up on season one of the show during a free trial period currently being offered on HBO NOW. In addition, HBO2 will present a marathon of the entire ten-episode first season on Saturday, October 10, starting at noon (ET/PT).
Debuting on Cinemax in August 2014, The Knick was recently nominated for five Emmys, including Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Steven Soderbergh).
Helmed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Clive Owen as the brilliant but emotionally tortured surgeon Dr. John W. Thackery, the upcoming second season, set in 1901, finds the staff of the Knick in turmoil as they prepare for the hospital to be shuttered in favor of a new building uptown. In this world of corruption, invention and progress, everyone is searching for the new path that will help him or her survive. Whether it's a path toward justice, freedom, love or just plain survival, nothing comes easy. The creators and writing team of Jack Amiel & Michael Begler serve as executive producers along with Gregory Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Sugar and Clive Owen.
