When will Transplant season 2 be released in the United States?

Season 2 of Transplant began production in February 2021, according to Deadline, and is not anticipated to broadcast in Canada until later that year.

The series’ American release date has yet to be determined by NBC. Given that the Canadian premiere has been postponed, the same is likely to happen in the United States. According to a CTV press statement, the show’s second season will contain 13 episodes, much like the first. That makes it more likely that NBC will air it in 2022 as a midseason premiere rather than at the start of the fall/winter TV season.

While season 2 of Transplant might premiere in the fall of 2021, don’t be shocked if it premieres in early 2022. Of course, nothing is official until NBC confirms it.

Who will be back for Season 2 of Transplant?

Transplant fans will be pleased to learn that the core cast will return for the second season. According to a press statement from CTV, Haq will reprise his role as Dr. Hamed with Laurence Leblanc as Dr. Mags Leblanc, Ayisha Issa as Dr. June Curtis, Sirena Gulamgaus as Amira Hamed, Jim Watson as Dr. Theo Hunter, and John Hannah as Dr. Jed Bishop, among others.

We’ll be interested to see if Hannah continues a cast member during the second season. While his character recovered consciousness throughout the episode, he’s not out of the woods yet. While Hannah is listed as a series regular for season 2, it wouldn’t be unheard of for a TV medical drama to have a character die suddenly.

Torri Higginson, who portrays nurse Claire Malone, will be promoted from a recurring role to a series regular for season 2. (via Deadline).

The questions we’d like to see solved in the second season of Transplant

Season 2 of Transplant is welcome news, considering season 1 left many unanswered concerns. The most urgent concern is how Dr. Bishop’s suspected stroke would affect the York Memorial staff and patients. According to a CTV news release, the incident has left the facility “destabilized.” According to the press release, new staff will be arriving in the emergency department soon, and we’re sure they’ll bring lots of new drama with them.

By the conclusion of the season, they appeared closer than ever to take their flirtation to the next level, but neither has taken the initiative and made an official move. Whether they explore their attraction to one another or not, expect their possible relationship to play a role in season 2.
