The Wondery True-Crime Anthology Podcast Dr. Death Returns for a Fourth Season

Press Release · via Wondery ·

The critically acclaimed original true-crime series from Wondery, Dr. Death, will return in December with a new story of a doctor who deceived both the medical establishment and the patients who put their lives in his hands. In the fourth installment, Dr. Death: Bad Magic host Laura Beil returns to tell the story of Serhat Gumrukcu, a charismatic medic who said he was on the brink of curing some of the world’s deadliest diseases—all while hiding secrets about his criminal past. The fourth season will be available on Wondery+ starting December 4, and will be available on Amazon Music and everywhere you get your podcasts starting January 22.

Serhat Gumrukcu was acclaimed as a genius after his research promised groundbreaking treatments for the terminally ill. Excitement about the breakthrough made him rich—his biotech company reached a value of half a billion dollars. Meanwhile, Gumrukcu led a charmed life in Los Angeles, posting photos of himself with celebrities in glamorous locations. But when a man from his past was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds, Gumrukcu’s secrets began to unravel. The investigation details a fascinating story of miraculous cures, spoon-bending magic, and murder.

Since its debut, Dr. Death has captured the attention of true-crime obsessives all over the world and spurred the Peacock Original series adaptation, Dr. Death. Season Two of the critically acclaimed TV series is based on Season Three of the podcast, which follows the shocking rise and fall of Dr. Paolo Macchiarini, and will premiere on Peacock on December 21.
