NBC’s ‘Transplant’, which has been branded as one of the best medical dramas to have aired on the channel to date, concluded its inaugural run in December 2020. The Canadian drama ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, concerning the fates of the protagonist and his sister. Of course, this has left fans wanting answers. And it is never too soon to start wondering about a follow-up edition. So, let’s get started!
Transplant Season 2 Release Date:
‘Transplant’ season 1 premiered on September 1, 2020, on NBC at 10 pm ET/ 9 pm CT. It wrapped up with its two-part finale (episodes 12 and 13) on December 8, 2020. The first season aired on CTV in Canada from February 26, 2020, to May 27, 2020.
On June 24, 2020, production company Bell Media announced that the show has been renewed for its second edition. Although a release date has not been revealed yet, we expect ‘Transplant’ season 2 to premiere sometime in Summer 2021 in Canada. NBC, considering the positive reviews received by the first installment, should import the new iteration as well. If things fall in place, ‘Transplant’ season 2 will most likely premiere in Fall 2021 in the US.
Transplant Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
We expect the entire lead cast to make a comeback in season 2. We have Hamza Haq as Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed, a Syrian national who joins the York Memorial Hospital in Canada as a resident. Bash is well-versed in using unconventional emergency medical techniques, which he had acquired during his time in war-torn Syria. Laurence Leboeuf stars as Dr. Magalie Leblanc AKA Mags while John Hannah essays the role of Dr. Jed Bishop, the head of the emergency department at the hospital.
Amira, Bash’s younger sister, is played by Sirena Gulamgaus. Ayisha Issa portrays Dr. June Curtis, Jim Watson enacts Dr. Theo Hunter, Linda E. Smith stars as Dr. Wendy Atwater, and Sugith Varughese plays Dr. Aajay Singh. We also have Kenny Wong as Arnold De Luca, Grace Lynn Kung as Vivian Barnes, and Torri Higginson as Claire Malone.
Transplant Season 2 Plot: What Can it be About?
The finale of season 1 sees Bash and Amira reuniting with an unidentified Syrian woman. While Amira is elated meeting the lady, Bash pulls the woman into a hug — exclaiming that he had thought she was dead. We are yet to know who this character is — definitely not Bash’s mother but someone surely close to the family. On the other hand, Mags progresses in her career, Jed is still serious though out of danger, June has the option to be promoted to the chief resident, and Theo has to choose between his dream job and his family. Season 2 is expected to give us answers to all of the aforementioned incomplete storylines.
