"SkyMed," the Canadian medical drama series, is set to launch its second season soon. Created by Julie Puckrin, known for her work on the SyFy series "Killjoys," "SkyMed" is inspired by the real-life story of Puckrin's sister and brother-in-law, who met while working on air ambulances.
The second season promises new romances, heartaches, and professional hurdles for the team, offering both high-tension scenarios and moments of personal growth.
The latest trailer for "SkyMed" also showcases the close bonds and dynamic lives of the SkyMed team set against the backdrop of Canada's snowy landscapes. The team is seen balancing their demanding jobs with their personal lives, from rescuing people buried in snow to airlifting injured hikers from remote mountain locations. In their downtime, they're either forming romantic connections or simply supporting each other in various endeavors.
However, the season takes a suspenseful turn when one of the SkyMed aircraft experiences a malfunction and crashes in a secluded area. Stranded with a patient and cut off from immediate help, the team members find themselves in a desperate situation, relying on a rescue by their colleagues. Despite the challenges, the team's unbreakable spirit and camaraderie shine through, forming the core of the series' narrative.
Viewers can expect the story to intensify, alongside burgeoning relationships and unexpected twists — including snakes on a plane!
