CTV’s Transplant was one of the best medical shows of 2020. The show kept people company during the early weeks of the COVID pandemic lockdown. With a sympathetic central character, the show was a rating hit for CTV and soon they greenlit Transplant season 2 which recently started filming in Montreal, Canada.
Transplant follows Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed, an immigrant from Syria who is raising a sister in Canada. Through the first season, the plight of refugees is shown through the lens of Bash and his own struggle makes the tried and tested medical drama story a little different and heartfelt.
After the success of the show in Canada, NBC picked up the rights to show the medical drama on their channel as well as the Peacock platform. CTV’s Transplant was a success in the US also which is why Transplant season 2 was picked up by CTV on 11 December.

The ending of Transplant season 1 rounded out the story of the show. Even if they had not renewed the series for the second season it would have been a satisfying end. But fans were not willing to let go of Bash and the other doctors of York Memorial Hospital.
With NBC also getting in on the action as they covered the timeslot vacated by New Amsterdam season 3. There was a genuine interest in the US and Canada for CTV to go another round with the likable cast of Transplant. And according to reports Transplant season 2 will have a total of 13 episodes, similar to the first season.
The beginning of filming was announced on 10 February 2021. The official Instagram page of CTV Transplant showed a picture of the four leading cast members, perfectly spaced, and captioned the picture, “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Production on Season 2 of #Transplant has begun.”
The announcement of Transplant season 2 was met with a warm reception as thousands of fans expressed how much they missed the freshman series. While the Instagram announcement did not mention the release date for Transplant season 2, barring any COVID delays, we expect the show to arrive in the late summer or early fall of 2021.
Transplant Cast Wish Everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day
As the cast and crew of Transplant season 2 are filming in Canada, they took a little time off to wish everyone on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. Everyone in their scrubs and wearing masks, three of the cast members had fun recording the sweet message for the fans.
Bash actor Hamza Haq kicked things off with a “Happy Valentine’s Day Canada” message. That was followed by Mags actress Laurence Leboeuf commenting “you make our hearts skip a bit.” And to end the message Theo actor Tim Watson came on screen to warn everyone that if your heart does skip a beat in real life, you should get a doctor.
The fans were having a laugh in the comment section. And they also continued to show their adoration for the CTV show. The cast of the show also seems to be having fun filming Transplant season 2 so we are all more than excited to see where Bash and his friends are headed next.
