How John Doe would have season 2

John Doe

After the show was canceled, one of its producers revealed the secret of the main character's true identity in an interview with TV Guide: the Phoenix Organization, he said, was a group conducting research into near-death experiences. They believed that the sum total of knowledge in the universe would be conferred upon them at the moment of death, so they killed John and brought him back to life in order to gain access to that knowledge.

The show's final episode revealed that a close friend of John's was in fact the true leader of the Phoenix Organization. An explanation of Doe's identity was eventually put forward by the show's producers in the pages of Entertainment Weekly. 


The article read, in part:


Where We Left Off: Doe was helping the police solve crimes and being tracked by a seemingly nefarious group called the Phoenix Organization. He finally unmasked the big bad, a villain nicknamed Stocking Cap -- his friend, Digger (played by William Forsythe)!What Would Have Happened: Make that someone who looked like John's friend. The villain unmasked in the finale was actually just a Phoenix member with some fancy facial reconstruction.


Turns out, the Phoenix believed Doe was the Messiah and its members were actually protecting Doe from a second group, which wanted him dead. The truth: Doe was injured in a boating accident. That mark on his chest? A scar left by a piece of shrapnel from the explosion. His Überbrain? A by-product of transcending his body during a near-death experience, traveling to a spiritual plane where all the universe's questions are answered.So Who is John Doe?! "You'd think we actually would have come up with his name," the show's producer revealed. "We have no idea," he finally admitted, before adding "Fred."

Shows from the Past : John Doe [2002-2003]


TV Show "John Doe", premiered in September 2002, ran one season, cancelled May 2003. It's about a man, calls himself John Doe, who wakes up on an island not knowing who he is. However he does know everything else, anything you can think of. While helping the police solving crimes he tries to uncover his past. Meanwhile the Phoenix organization watches his every move.


TV Show ends with a cliff-hanger after one season but despite of that it's an entertaining show, so if you have the time, give this one a chance.
