The Hippocrates medical series is back on Canal + for a second season which finds particular echo in the current health context. The first season of the series created by Thomas Lilti had already had a strong resonance. It has increased tenfold after the year under Covid that we have just gone through.
In our Spotlight podcast this week, spotlight on Hippocrates to discuss this context and its impact on writing and filming, and detailing the stakes of these new episodes.
Thomas Lilti, creator of the Hippocrates series, is our guest. He is also the director of several feature films, including Hippocrates the film, Country doctor and more recently First year. He has just released his first book, The oath, published by Grasset.

Season 2 synopsis: It’s winter. A cold wave hit France, hospitals are overwhelmed. A pipe blew up, flooding the emergency rooms of the Poincaré hospital. Caregivers and patients must fall back to internal medicine. Alyson and Hugo are continuing their internship in the service. Chloe does everything to come back to practice despite her fragile health. None of the three has heard from Arben, who has disappeared without leaving a word. They will have to face a hospital in crisis, under the authority of Doctor Olivier Brun, the new head of the emergency department.
