First there was the original: COVID…
Then there was COVID: Omicron…
Then, just when you thought it was safe to breathe again…
The popular weekly horror / medical drama “COVID” has been renewed for a third season. Starring Anthony Fauci as the lying anti-hero Dr. Needles and Rochelle Walensky as soulless bureaucrat Ms. Blankenslate, the show has been popular in the US and around the world since its first season in 2020. It centers around the exploits of these two main characters as they conspire to gain fame and fortune leading the containment efforts for a mysterious virus called COVID. The main symptoms are brain fog and the nearly complete loss of analytical reasoning ability. Victims also experience a strong impulse to cover their face with cloth.
Season one nearly ended with the complete destruction of civilization, but the world was saved in the finale by the mysterious “orange man” who created a vaccine in his underground lab and rolled it out in the nick of time.
In the second season, the main characters have been trying to convince the world that another COVID outbreak is occurring, code-named “OMICRON.” It also brought a little levity with the introduction of “Ruprecht” – an old man with dementia who thinks he’s the President of the United States, played by the well-known method actor Joe Biden.
The third season promises more political intrigue as another wave of disease hits the US, but no one seems to take it seriously. This new threat has the rather silly name “DELTACRON”, which might mean the show is starting to take itself a bit less seriously
