NBC acquired the show in May 2020 and announced it would pick up the second season in late December. With 5.7 million viewers on the US network, NBC noted Transplant as one of television’s most time-shifted shows through its run – ranking no. 1 during its first seven original telecasts.
Transplant follows Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed (played by Hamza Haq), a Syrian doctor with battle-tested skills in emergency medicine. Bash decides to flee his country and start a new life in Canada – earning a coveted residency in the emergency department of one of the best hospitals in Toronto, York Memorial.
The show is the most-watched Canadian original series, according to CTV.
