Trust Me Plot: What’s It About?
The first season of ‘Trust Me’ follows the story of a woman called Cath Hardacre. She is a single mother who works as a nurse. A bit of tension in her life starts to show in her work and she is fired from the job for neglecting her duties towards the patients. Such a black spot in her resume becomes a hurdle for her to secure another job and with already so much problems in her life, she decides to start fresh in some place else with some other name. An opportunity allows her to take over the identity of her friend, Alison Sutton, and she starts her new job as an A&E doctor. Trouble stirs when the people from her old life come looking for her, while the people from real Alison’s life cross paths with her.
After the departure of Jodie Whittaker, the second series was commissioned with an entirely different plot and a new set of characters, which wasn’t a problem because the storyline of the first season had already been wrapped. It follows the story of Corporal Jamie McCain. After a spinal injury renders him paralysed, Jamie is forced to spend his days on a hospital bed, staring at the ceiling and waiting for others to take care of him. He feels utterly useless until strange things start happening around him. The patients in his ward start dying under suspicious circumstances. He decides to look into it and find out exactly what is happening before he falls prey to it as well.
Trust Me Season 3 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Trust Me’ Season 2 premiered on April 16, 2019. The series opened up to great reviews and lived up to the expectations that had peaked after the brilliance of the first season. Such great response usually means a great thing for any show. Now as far as the next season goes, we don’t have an official announcement yet. Though considering the popularity of the show, we would be surprised if it doesn’t get another season. Our best guess is that if the show does get renewed, ‘Trust Me’ Season 3 can release sometime around April, 2020. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
