Transplant Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere on NBC?

Attention readers! The beloved Canadian medical drama television series, which was created by Joseph Kay and renewed for a third season by CTV and NBC, is now confirmed to make its official comeback on Thursday, October 12, 2023, at 9 p.m. on NBC, sandwiched between Law & Order Universe encores and Dateline. It will now premiere a week later than its original Thursday, October 5, 2023, release on NBC. It will also be available to stream on Peacock the next day. In order to receive updates, interested viewers can also enable notifications on the respective streaming platform.   

It is great to know that the series will be back for a new season this year on the NBC network, as it has not been delayed due to the ongoing 2023 Hollywood labour disputes. In addition to this, the third season has already premiered on September 23, 2022, on CTV, as it is a Canadian series. Moreover, Etalk, a company owned by CTV, said that season three will have 13 one-hour episodes. Hence, there is a bit of a difference in the release date of the new season when compared to its now-confirmed premiere date, which is set on the NBC network.  

Side Note: In March 2023, the series was renewed for a fourth season by CTV.

Transplant Season 3 Plot: What to expect from the new season?

The official overall synopsis of the series states: “Transplant follows the story of Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Hamza Haq), a talented doctor and Syrian refugee, who fled his war-torn country with his younger sister, Amira (Sirena Gulamgaus), for a fresh start in Canada. After a truck crashes into the restaurant where he’s been working, Bash earns the chance to practice medicine again by using his field-honed skills to save multiple lives in brilliant fashion, including that of Dr. Jed Bishop (John Hannah), the chief of Emergency Medicine at York Memorial Hospital in Toronto.”

The official synopsis of the new season states: The new season of “Transplant” finds Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Hamza Haq, “My Salinger Year”) continuing his journey to start over, but with each new milestone comes a new challenge. While pursuing Canadian citizenship for himself and his younger sister, Amira (Sirena Gulamgaus, “Orphan Black”), Bash closely examines who he’s becoming in his adopted country.

Bash, still being asked repeatedly to prove himself, works closely with his colleagues as they move forward following the dramatic conclusion of Season 2. Everyone continues to find themselves looking to adapt to change and understand how they fit in, both within and beyond the walls of York Memorial Hospital. After Dr. Bishop’s shocking departure, the team gains a new boss with the forward-thinking Dr. Neeta Devi (Rekha Sharma, “Yellowjackets”). Dr. Devi has big ideas when it comes to overhauling the emergency department at York Memorial.

Transplant Season 3 Cast: Who will reprise their roles?

The main cast members of the show who will reprise their roles for the new season of “Transplant” are as follows: Laurence Leboeuf as Dr. Magalie “Mags” Leblanc, Ayisha Issa as Dr. June Curtis, Jim Watson as Dr. Theo Hunter, Torri Higginson as head nurse Claire Malone, Gord Rand as Dr. Mark Novak and Sirena Gulamgaus as Amira. Creator Joseph Kay serves as showrunner and executive producer. Rachel Langer, Josée Vallée, Jocelyn Deschênes, Bruno Dubé and Stefan Pleszczynski also executive produce. “Transplant” is produced by Sphere Media in association with CTV and Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Moreover, Haq revealed in a July 2022 interview that fans will see a new side of Bash in Season 3 of Transplant as he continues to build his confidence in the hospital.  

“We see a different version Bash than we’ve seen in the past… There’s a bit more confidence and arrogance that he can exude,” Haq said. “Because obviously he thinks very highly of himself as a doctor and considered himself highly capable, but there’s always been this like protocol thing where you can’t prove it…”  He continued, “I think without that tension or that pressure that’s being put on him, I think he’s able to flourish and flex his chops more as an individual, for better or for worse. So, you know, as far as Bash’s storyline is concerned, I think we’ll see a different version of him than what you’ve seen before.”

Transplant Season 3 Official Trailer: Has it been released? 

The official trailer for the third season was previously released by CTV Television, as the show has already aired the new season in Canada on September 23, 2022, as it concluded its official run earlier this year on February 3, 2023. 

The delayed release in the US is due to NBC acquiring the U.S. broadcast rights for the series and announcing that season 3 would premiere on October 12, 2023, moving to Thursdays at 9 p.m. to fill the timeslot of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The Law & Order series was pushed back to mid-season of the 2023–24 season due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike and the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike delaying certain productions, although Law & Order and SVU will air repeat episodes on Thursday at 8 p.m.

In addition to this, for international audiences in New Zealand, the series is available for streaming on TVNZ OnDemand. In French Canada, the series airs on Vrak, simultaneously with its broadcast on CTV and later on Noovo. In November 2020, Sky Witness acquired the UK rights to the drama after striking a deal with international distributor NBC Universal Global Distribution. In Brazil, the series is available for streaming on Globoplay. In Malaysia, the series aired on Primetime. In Australia, the series aired on Nine Network and is available to stream on 9Now.
