Jon Hamm, Daniel Radcliffe Reuniting for 'A Young Doctor's Notebook' Follow-Up
LONDON -- Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe will reprise their roles for a second season of A Young Doctor's Notebook & Other Stories, the Russian medical comedy-drama from Sky Arts based on Russian satirist Mikhal Bulgakov's short story memoir.
Hamm said he was thrilled to come back "to our wonderful, weird, wild world of A Young Doctor's Notebook." He described the first season as "an absolute blast to work on."
Radcliffe added that he had "absolutely no hesitation" in agreeing to a second season.
"I am also greatly looking forward to working with our new director, Robert McKillop, and cannot wait to commence filming this summer," Radcliffe said.
The second season will air on Sky Arts 1 HD and On Demand later in 2013 on the U.K. satellite broadcaster BSkyB's services.
The second season returns to the small village of Muryevo in 1918 to find the young doctor (Radcliffe) battling against an all-consuming morphine addiction.
Under the critical gaze of his "clean" older self (Hamm), the young doctor struggles to cope with life in the hospital, the Civil War, and the arrival of Natasha, a beautiful young aristocrat.
A Young Doctor's Notebook will premiere in the U.S. on Ovation this summer.
