**Warning – Spoilers ahead for episode 7**
Hulu’s miniseries, Dopesick, will be delivering its final dose very shortly and we cover the release date, time, and plot of the season finale.
Starring Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, and Will Poulter, developed by Danny Strong, Dopesick is based on the non-fiction book, Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy regarding the country’s addiction to Opioids.
Dopesick Episode 8 Release Date, Time and Plot
The season finale of Dopesick, titled ‘Smoke Atb,’ is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 on Hulu at 12 am ET.
While there is no official synopsis for the season finale, episode 8 will likely build on Purdue Pharmacy’s success in the previous episode.
With Purdue’s victory over the FDA, negating the black box warning, the selling of OxyContin went ahead by only carrying a boxed warning.
This means that the season finale could be a much calmer conclusion to the series than previously thought, on top of the DEA’s case running out of steam too.
