Transplant Season 2 continues with the story of Dr. Bashir Hamed – known to most as Bash – a talented doctor and Syrian refugee who fled to Canada and was granted a second chance to practice Emergency Medicine at York Memorial Hospital in Toronto. Season 2 picks up almost immediately after the events that concluded Season 1; Bash and his fellow residents are reeling after York Memorial’s Chief of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Jed Bishop, has suffered a possible stroke. Life at the hospital is destabilized, and the place that Bash was starting to call home suddenly feels much more precarious. As the team at York Memorial attempt to handle new colleagues, the challenges of familial life, and unexpected faces from the past, Bash is left seriously doubting whether or not his ‘transplant’ into this new world was successful. Although Bash is not an exact match for his new life, his hard work, compassion, and hopefulness tell a universal story about the human ability to not only survive, but recuperate and ultimately thrive within new circumstances.
