Dr. Death Returns To Peacock With An All-New Medical True Crime Storyline

Dr. Death

Dr. Death on Peacock was nominated for a Critic’s Choice Award for Best Limited Series. As well as named one of the top series by Entertainment Weekly, NPR, and more. It explored the psyche of disgraced Texas Neurosurgeon Dr. Christopher Duntsch, played by Joshua Jackson. He maimed and killed 38 patients over his career.

Now Peacock has announced a second season to Dr. Death, with an all-new gripping medical true-crime storyline. The new season from UPC will be based on the hit Wondery podcast and showrun, written, executive produced by Ashley Michel Hoban, and executive produced by Patrick Macmanus.

Here is the description of season two of Dr. Death

Paolo Macchiarini is a charming surgeon, renowned for his innovative operations that earn him the nickname “Miracle Man.” When investigative journalist Benita Alexander approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever. As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about the “Miracle Man” into question. 


“I am so honored to have the opportunity to expand the Dr. Death universe with this fascinating story,” said showrunner, writer, and executive producer Ashley Michel Hoban. “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. 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.”

“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,” said Lisa Katz, President Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “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.”
