Last we heard of period favorite The Knick, director Steven Soderbergh seemed ready to step down if Cinemax opted to press forward with a third and fourth season. There’s still no official word if The Knick will return, or in what capacity just yet, but now Soderbergh might return behind the camera after all, promising a “pretty extreme” third season.

It’s been a few weeks since the Season 2 finale of Cinemax-Soderbergh medical period drama The Knick, which itself … well, it didn’t leave prospects for the series (or star Clive Owen) in a great place. We’ve heard that Steven Soderbergh might step back for a possible third, even fourth season, but now the revered director envisions it to run as long as six.

Not only was 2015 a great year for film, but it might have been a more consistently great year for television — so much so that it was impossibly difficult to choose just 10 shows from a list that began with about 15. As such, I want to give honorable mention to a few of the series that would have been included if this were a longer list: Tina Fey’s remarkable new Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the final (half?) season of Mad Men, the incomparably hilarious and relatable Broad City, the dizzying and dangerous journey of The Jinx, another delightful season of Orange Is the New Black, the final outing of Parks and Recreation and the reliably enthralling Game of Thrones. Oh, and Difficult People! How could I forget Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner’s wonderfully biting Hulu series? See. It was an excellent year.

Those following Steven Soderbergh’s fantastically auteur medical drama The Knick understandably found themselves aghast at the Season 2 finale, a stark reminder that Soderbergh and series star Clive Owen only signed on for two years. Now, the director confirms that he himself will exit the series, though Cinemax may well move forward with a Season 3 (and 4) that looks markedly different.

‘The Knick’ Season 3 Still On the Table, Cinemax Orders Initial Script

For all the critical steam Steven Soderbergh and Clive Owen’s Cinemax period drama The Knick picked up over two seasons (the second of which ended just last night), the series has long been conceived and contracted to run only two years. At least one major character’s fate was left in doubt by the Season 2 finale, though Cinemax has officially begun consideration of a third, ordering an initial script.

‘The Knick’ Season 2 Trailer: Clive Owen Feels Better Than Ever

When Clive Owen’s John Thackery says “I feel better than ever” in the new Season 2 trailer for The Knick, it’s hard to take that at face value — or any value, really. Last we saw Thackery, he was holed up in a nice rehab home for his cocaine addiction, where he was being treated with a revolutionary new drug: heroin. Hardly a promising ending for the brilliant, spun-out doctor, but whether he’s actually better or not, Thackery is back.

If you are not watching The Knick, it should definitely be high up on your list of television priorities. Steven Soderbergh’s early 20th century period medical drama is gorgeously cinematic and exquisitely intense, and may be some of the filmmaker’s finest work to date. Today brings our first look at Season 2 via an appropriately unnerving and slightly surreal teaser — in addition to revealing a quarantine in San Francisco, the teaser also promises an October premiere.

We haven't made very much of Cinemax's forthcoming medical period drama, 'The Knick,' which is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Clive Owen, though the first trailer certainly inspires at least a bit of confidence and some stellar production value. See for yourself with a first look at Owen carving up the streets of old New York as 'The Knick.'
