This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be season 2 of the Apple TV+ series Five Days at Memorial and its renewed or cancelled status.
Five Days at Memorial was a series that followed the Doctors and nurses at the intensive care unit of a New Orleans hospital that struggled with treating patients in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The series was a whirlwind of emotions as it was an inside look at what happened during one of the biggest disasters in our generation.
The series is based on a book written by Sheri Fink. Fink interviewed hundreds of people that dealt with the aftermath, from doctors to nurses to patients. You get a first-hand look at their lack of support during the disaster and some of the gut-wrenching decisions the doctors had to make. The entire series had you on the edge of your seat, trying to figure out whose side you were truly on.
Will there be a season 2 of the Apple TV+ series Five Days at Memorial – renewed or canceled status
Status: Not Renewed
As of right now, there is no update regarding whether or not we would get a season two of Five Days at Memorial. However, with the series being based on a true story and us witnessing everything that played out, I am not sure it could go in many directions.
However, depending on the show’s success, they could try to explore the series in a few different avenues, one of which is a docuseries. Apple TV+ has become a staple on docuseries as of late, and I could see them possibly doing something surrounding this story. I believe there is a lot more they could milk off this story that would make people tune in (including me).
You could have some of the doctors and nurses portrayed by these actors talk about the harrowing events that transpired. I would even be interested to see if Apple TV+ would be able to get Dr. Anna Pou herself on the show to talk about her side of the story. Another idea that could work would be for the person that portrays the doctor or nurse to be the one that does the interviewing.
The more I am typing about this, the more I am talking myself into how much I would love to see this happen. After watching this series, do you share that same feeling as me? Would you watch a docuseries based on Five Days at Memorial? Let us know in the comments below.
