Last year, Chicago Med had the best viewership ratings of NBC’s trio of Chicago drama series. Will it continue to do as well for the peacock network in this time around. Could the numbers fall far enough for the show to be in danger? It seems highly unlikely but you never know. Will Chicago Med be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An NBC medical drama, Chicago Med stars Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Torrey DeVitto, Brian Tee, Marlyne Barrett, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Oliver Platt. The story follows the doctors, nurses, and staff of the city’s state of the art trauma center, Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. As a team, they confront the Windy City’s most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion, and state-of-the-art treatment. The series also features crossovers with Chicago Fire and Chicago PD.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
