‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ Season 2 Announced

Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Daniel Radcliffe (The Harry Potter franchise) are slipping back into their lab coats for a second season of A Young Doctor’s Notebook, Sky Arts has revealed. The first series proved to be the most successful series in the network’s history. Season one is set to debut stateside Thursday, October 3rd at 8pm ET on Ovation.

Based on the works of Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, A Young Doctor’s Notebook stars Hamm as the older opiate addicted version of Radcliffe’s young doctor, who also serves as the comedy/drama’s narrator. Season two will pick up in the Russian village of Muryevo in 1918 to find the Young Doctor battling a morphine addiction as his older self criticizes him. Meanwhile, he’ll also be dealing with the Russian Civil War, working at the hospital and the arrival of a beautiful woman named Natasha.

“I had absolutely no hesitation in agreeing to do a second series of A Young Doctor’s Notebook,” Radcliffe said in a statement. “I had an incredible time working with the multi talented Jon Hamm and of course am a huge fan of Mikhail Bulgakov’s work and so was thrilled when I was told a second series had been commissioned. I am also greatly looking forward to working with our new director Robert McKillop and cannot wait to commence filming this summer.”

A Young Doctor’s Notebook season two will premiere on Sky Arts in late 2013.
