What is Transplant about?
The intense medical drama follows Syria refugee, Dr. Bashir "Bash" Hamed, as he restarts his medical career as a resident at Toronto's fictional York Memorial Hospital. Season 3 will see Bash and the rest of the team deal with the absence of Bishop after he resigned from York and his new replacement, Dr. Neeta Devi (Rekha Sharma) joins the team. And in the midst of all the changes that comes with this huge shift, Bash will also continue his pursuit for his and Amira's Canadian citizenship
"We see a different version of Bash than we’ve seen in the past," Haq told TV Meg about the third season. "There’s a bit more confidence and arrogance that he can exude 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 or, you know, it’s one more, one wrong move and you’re out kind of thing. And 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."
The Transplant cast
The talented cast of Transplant includes the beloved Haq as Bash Hamed, Rekha Sharma as newcomer Neeta Devi, Ayisha Issa as June Curtis, Laurence Leboeuf as Magalie "Mags" Leblanc, and Jim Watson as Theo Hunter.
