Steven Soderbergh niet de regie The Knick seizoen 3

De seizoensfinale van het tweede seizoen van de dramaserie The Knick, met in de hoofdrol Clive Owen was episch en tragisch. Veel kijkers vroegen zich af of de serie nog wel zal doorgaan. Volgens bedenker Steven Soderbergh was dit van meet af aan de bedoeling. Tijdens een interview liet hij weten dat The Knick een ‘anthology’-serie moet worden, waarbij ziekenhuis Knickerbocker de verbindende lijm is tussen de verschillende seizoenen. Dit heeft als gevolg dat aankomende seizoenen door andere talenten gemaakt zal worden:

“Let’s put it this way. We had this all planned out very clearly from the very beginning. I just said [to Owen early on], ‘If it matters to you, we are going to kill you at the end of Season 2 just so you know.’ He was like, ‘Okay. Good to know. But I just said, ‘that is the design. That’s what we’re doing. We are looking at the show in two-year increments and the shape of the first two years is that we’re going to kill you at the end of season two. It’s going to be a self-surgery. We had the pictures of the guy that actually did this procedure on himself successfully and we knew how we we’re going to kill him. We knew that before Clive even had read the script! Everybody signed off. I told them that I’m going to do the first two years and then we are going to break out the story for seasons 3 and 4 and try and find a filmmaker or filmmakers to do this the way that I did. This is how we want to do this so that every two years, whoever comes on, has the freedom to create their universe. They don’t have to shoot it the way I shoot it. They don’t have to score it the way I score it. They don’t have to cast who I’ve cast,” he said. “They have maximum freedom to come in and just go, ‘I want to wipe the slate clean.’”

Soderbergh regisseerde alle afleveringen van de eerste twee seizoenen en zal waarschijnlijk als uitvoerend producent van toekomstige seizoenen fungeren.
