Watch: 'The Knick' Season 2 Trailer Brings Clive Owen Back, Then Takes Him Away

The Knicktrailers are just a delight, aren’t they? Our initial (brief) glimpse into the return of Steven Soderbergh’s 1900-set medical universe paid homage to the man behind the camera, and the first full trailer (above) is an ode to the one in front of it.

Dr. Thackery makes his return to the hospital he was running until the end of Season 1, when a nasty shortage of heroin sent the bad doc figuratively off the deep end and literally into rehab. There was no doubt he’d come back, but how this equal-doses-brilliant-and-mad-scientist would reemerge are still a mystery. 

Enjoy the 90-second teaser above, and take note of the deliberate structuring and editing at play. We’re certainly led to believe Thackery will return to the Knick early in Episode 1 before being taken to sea later in the season, but that order could very well be reversed when we see the full episodes. 

“The Knick” Season 2 premieres Friday, October 16 on Cinemax.
