Season 2 of Steven Soderbergh's period drama "The Knick" concluded with a major cliffhanger, and as the show prepares for a third season, fans are looking forward to series catering to the questions that have been left unanswered.
According to Design & Trend, Soderbergh has said that he wants the series to go on for at least six years, which means there will be further seasons of "The Knick" apart from Season 3.
However, it has not yet been confirmed as to which of the plot elements, which were left unanswered in the last season, will be explored in Season 3. However, the most important question that the viewers are eagerly waiting for is whether Dr. Thackery is dead or not.
As stated by Design & Trend, Clive Owen, who portrays the character, has said that it looks like Thackery is dead. His statement has been supported by Soderbergh as well.
However, there is a possibility that Thackery is not dead. Given that he is one of major characters in the series, the show-runners might bring him back and fans might get to see him soon.
The concept of different time-lines is not new in the show as in Season 2, the viewers witnessed a flashback from an alternative timeline. It might be possible that in a different dimension, Thackery is still alive and will return to the show.
When Soderbergh was asked about it by Variety, he seemed unsure.
"I don't know yet. There's been a lot of discussion about if we switch time periods can we still bring back the cast but have them play other people. Everything's on the table," Soderbergh said.
Other questions that the fans might expect to be answered in the upcoming season will be whether Algernon Edwards be able to get revenge on Everett Gallinger, will justice be served to Henry Robertson and the mystery behind Barrow's illness.
