The premiere episode this season is titled “00:42:30” and the official synopsis describes episode 1 as this, “A blackout requires the staff to treat their patients without the help of any technology; Bell orders the staff to stop accepting new patients; Conrad and Devon go against the mandate to help a child; Mina and Austin must perform heart surgery.”
Episode 2 is called “The Prince & the Pauper”. The plot description of the episode states, “Bell grows frustrated when Conrad’s dad and new chairman of the board requests Conrad’s input in his discussions about hospital expenses; a sharp and sophisticated medical device representative tries to promote her costly products.” And, episode 3 this season is titled “Three Words”.
This season on the show’s cast, Jane Leeves joins as Kitt Voss, an orthopedic surgeon. Some may recognize Leeves from when she played the role of Daphne Moon on the television sitcom Frasier. She has also been known for her part on the show Hot in Cleveland. And, according to Deadline, Leeves is one of three new full-time cast members, as the cast is undergoing some major changes. Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Glenn Morshower are also joining the show as regulars.
According to TV Line, there could be some deaths “close to home” and some departures on the show this season. Apparently, executive producer Todd Harthan has hinted at a death. Harthan revealed that, “What you’ll find in the first six episodes are several characters on the board that legitimately could exit our world, one way or another. That’s both returning and new … There are more characters on the board that you’re going to be invested in, that you’re going to care about, that you’re going to be rooting for, who are either in medical or physical danger.”
Matt Czuchry, Manish Dayal, Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp and Shaunette Renee Wilson have all returned from the original cast to be a part of season 2.
