The Good Karma Hospital is a medical drama series produced by Tiger Aspect Productions for ITV about a disillusioned doctor, Ruby Walker, who heads for South India hoping to make a fresh start. The series is shot in Unawatuna in southern Sri Lanka, Thiranagama Golden Beach Restaurant, and some other places in Galle District.
The fifth season is not decided yet, but ITV is expected to announce it in the coming months.
Creator Dan Sefton said: “The show has a loyal fanbase. We’re hugely appreciative of that fanbase, and as long as people want to watch it, I think it will be made. We’ll continue to evolve it gradually as seasons go by, but we don’t need to reinvent everything. I think that’s the trick with TV, and it needs to be a slow evolution.
New characters come, favorite characters move on, and if the show is vital, if the show’s tone is strong and we know what it is, it can grow with that and get better and better. I think this is the case with this show, and it has the potential to keep going and continue to be entertaining because that’s the ultimate goal.
The Good Karma Hospital season 5 plot
Dan Sefton said he has ‘no clue what would be coming down the line for the characters of The Good Karma Hospital in a potential fifth season, but they think the will-they-won’t-they romance between Ruby and Gabriel could be a crucial part of the story if the show continues.
James Krishna-Floyd, who plays Dr. Gabriel, says Dan deserves credit for being patient with the character’s storyline and not rushing any potential romance…
There’s no trailer for this one yet, but soon it will come.
