Bad news for fans of “The Knick:” Cinemax may have canceled the series. Although there is no official word yet from the network, one of the cast members has said the show may not be returning for a third season.
“Yeah, I’ve heard it’s done,” Chris Sullivan, who played ambulance driver Tom Cleary, told TVLine. “They were gonna try [to do a third season], but I’ve heard it’s done.”
The “This Is Us” star added, “I kind of love that British style: two seasons of tight, compact, good television. The more episodes you have, the thinner the episodes get. So I kind of dig that.”
Although he has moved on to playing Toby, Kate’s boyfriend, in the NBC drama series “This Is Us,” Sullivan credits “The Knick” as a key point in his career. “I was very proud of that show. And everything I’ve done since then is directly because of that show”, the actor said. “So I’m very thankful to Steven Soderbergh and the whole crew.” The last episode of “The Knick” aired back in December 2015.
