Peacock is set to premiere the second season of “Dr. Death” on December 21, 2023, featuring Mandy Moore and Edgar Ramírez. The crime drama anthology explores the unsettling tale of Swiss-Italian surgeon Paolo Macchiarini, portrayed by Ramírez, known as the “Miracle Man.”

The official trailer delves into Macchiarini’s seemingly groundbreaking work and the trust placed in him by his patients. The chemistry between Ramírez and Moore is evident, with Moore’s character, Benita Alexander, growing suspicious of the surgeon’s actions. The season focuses on Macchiarini’s innovative yet questionable operations, revealing a dark side characterized by research fraud and experimental surgeries.

Benita Alexander, an investigative journalist portrayed by Moore, initially covers a story on Macchiarini, leading to a shift from professional to personal involvement that will alter her life permanently. As the story unfolds, viewers witness Macchiarini’s desperate attempts to protect his secrets, drawing the attention of doctors from across the globe who uncover his hidden activities.

To provide additional insight into the real-life events, Peacock plans to release a 90-minute companion documentary, “Dr. Death: Cutthroat Conman,” on the premiere day. This move is applauded for shedding light on the true story behind the chilling narrative.

The anthology series is adapted from the Wondery Podcast, with the third season focusing on Macchiarini’s story and the first season centering around Dr. Christopher Duntsch, the subject of the inaugural “Dr. Death” season on Peacock. Duntsch, convicted of malpractice resulting in the maiming of 38 patients, received a life sentence in 2017.
