Since Thursday, December 29, 2022, the 16th season of 'Der Bergdoktor' has been flickering across the screens on ZDF. Since then, a new episode of the popular doctor series has been running once a week with pleasant reliability, but ZDF is breaking with this tradition at the season finale of all times. German Bergdoktor fans look into the tube - why is the final postponed?
Season 16, in which “Bergdoktor” Martin Gruber (played by His Seal (53)) once again has to reconcile difficult patients and his even more complicated private life. But just now, as the season moves towards its dramatic finale, the news bursts in that ZDF is postponing the finale!
But what is the reason that loyal fans of the popular ZDF series (including with Mark Keller (57) and Ronja Forcher (26)) being held in suspense for the finale of all things? A program change! Because on Thursday, February 16, 2023, the day on which the eighth and last episode would actually run, is Weiberfastnacht. And on this important day of the carnival season, ZDF decided to broadcast “Kölle Alaaf – The Girl Meeting”. The Bergdoktor final will therefore only take place a week later, on Thursday, February 23, 2023.

Incidentally, 'Bergdoktor' fans in Austria are not affected by the program change. Unlike the German viewers, they don't look into the tube, because ORF2 shows the last episode 'Der Weg zurück' quite regularly and therefore already on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.
But in addition to 'Bergdoktor' fans in Austria, German viewers also have the opportunity to see the final on the original final date on February 16, 2023. The trick? The final episode will be available in the ZDF media library on February 16, 2023!
