Let’s see what we know so far.
What is the storyline of Dr. Death?
Based on the Wondery podcast of the same name, dr. Dead tells the true story of Christopher Duntsch (Dornan), who founded a thriving neurology practice in the Dallas medical community. Christopher Duntsch is a young, charismatic and successful surgeon. With his nearly perfect resume, he has a personality and a professional career that will impress anyone. However, everything starts to change when patients become disabled or even die during routine surgery. With the number of victims increasing by the day, two of his colleagues, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Slater), decide to investigate what’s going on.
In real life, according to rumors and newspapers, Christopher Duntsch is one of America’s leading names in spinal surgery until 2010. However, since 2015, he has been called “Doctor Death”. And he had to spend his life in prison. Because after nearly 40 operations, about 30 people became paralyzed. He also purposely took the lives of two people. July 20, 2045 is the earliest possible date for his parole hearing.
Will there be a second season of Dr. Death and when?
Although the second season of Dr. Death has not been officially confirmed of Peacock, fans are still eagerly awaiting. But don’t let this upset you, as it’s perfectly normal for the producers to wait a while to check the show’s popularity and audience reaction. In a regular process, in popular TV series, the second season will probably premiere after the first season is loved by the audience. But for Dr. Death this situation is a bit complicated. The show is based on a true crime and most of the story was told in the first season. In this context, while it means we’ve come to the end of Duntsch’s story, it doesn’t mean the show is completely over. Because the podcast from which this series has been adapted already has a second season. There, too, Christopher Duntsch’s story was completed, and the podcast’s second season focuses on the crimes of another doctor: Dr. Fatah! This story is also expected to be bought by Peacock. So, when are we going to get the story of Dr. View Fata? The podcast’s second season was released in 2020. If we factor in the purchase period and the recording time, we can expect the second season of the series in late 2022 or early 2023†
What can we expect from the second season?
dr. Death Season 1 ended with Dr. Duntsch who was caught and imprisoned for life after paralyzing more than thirty patients and killing two more. Season 2 of the podcast on which the series is based tells the story of one of America’s biggest health care fraudsters, oncologist Dr. Farid Fata. He is the doctor who gave chemotherapy to patients who didn’t even have cancer and destroyed the lives of many people. We expect the series to follow the podcast and continue with the same story. If you don’t want to wait for the show’s second season, you can listen to the podcast through streaming platforms. dr. Death will most likely appear in the new season with a new cast as it is expected to be an anthology.
