Medical Police is a comedy series that parodies international spy thrillers. The show takes the audience on an engrossing ride where doctors are racing against time to find a cure for the widely spread virus menacing humankind. Helmed by the creative team who were behind a mind-twister tale of comedy, Childrens Hospital, which parodies the medical dramas, Medical Police can be termed as the a natural spin-off of Children’s Hospital.
The development of Medical Police first came to light in 2017. After Childrens Hospital ended, series creator Rob Corddry revealed that a spin-off series, a “global thriller”, was in development. On February 19, 2019, Netflix announced that it had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten half-hour episodes.
While the Children’s Hospital won 4 Primetime Emmys and received 12 nominations, it would be fascinating to see if ‘Medical Police’ can match the feat. For now, the first season of the show has been received well. Those who are eager to know whether there will be a Medical Police season 2, keep on reading.
Medical Police Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Medical Police season 1 released on January 10, 2020, on Netflix. All 10 episodes released on the same day.
As far as the next season goes, here’s what we know. Medical Police’s parent show Childrens Hospital went on for 7 seasons and 86 episodes. At the very least, we should expect Medical Police to received at least a couple of more seasons. Netflix hasn’t made an official announcement yet, but considering the easy-going format of Medical Police, it is not hard to imagine the show continuing for several more seasons. If renewed, you can expect Medical Police season 2 to release sometime in January 2021.
