Talking about the upcoming season, Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content, at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming said, “The first season of Dr. Death blew us away as we dove into the terrifying, twisted mind of Dr. Christopher Duntsch and the team who set out to stop him. The new installment of this highly-addictive anthology series explores a globe-trotting surgeon who seduces the medical world, and we know we’re in expert hands with our partners at Wondery, UCP, Patrick Macmanus, and new season EP/showrunner Ashley Michel Hoban.”
