Based on the third season of the Wondery podcast of the same name, “Dr. Death” season 2 will focus on Paolo Macchiarini, a renowned and innovative surgeon who earns the nickname “Miracle Man.” However, everything changes when an investigative journalist named Benita Alexander tries to interview him for a story, and the lines are blurred between a professional and personal relationship. The deeper Alexander falls into the web of Macchiarini’s lies, the more harrowing details she uncovers about his life and well-kept secrets. Suddenly, these so-called “miracles” start to look a bit like dangerous omens.
“I am so honored to have the opportunity to expand the ‘Dr. Death’ universe with this fascinating story,” said Ashley Michel Hoban in a statement. “This season, we go global to explore how institutional failure to protect patients is a universal issue, but there are always heroes standing up and fighting for change every day.” She continued by saying, “I can’t wait to share this story of romance, intrigue, complicated characters, and, of course, the eeriness that is ‘Dr. Death’ with our fans.”
No word yet on when we can expect “Dr. Death” season 2 to arrive, but we will keep you updated as information becomes available.
