Viewers of The Resident will likely be seeing more of Dr. Leela Devi in the FOX show’s fifth season. Actress Anuja Joshi is being promoted to series regular for the upcoming 2021-22 season, per Deadline. Joshi recurred on the medical drama during season four, and the season finale featured a romantic moment between her and Dr. Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal). The fifth season will further develop the pair’s relationship.
Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Bruce Greenwood, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, and Jane Leeves also star in the FOX medical drama. It was recently reported that series regular Morris Chestnut will recur next season due to him starring in the new FOX drama Our Kind Of People.
The Resident will return to FOX this fall, but a premiere date has not yet been set. The series will air at 8:00 PM on Tuesday nights, leading into Our Kind of People at 9:00 PM.

The Rresident is my favourite medical show. YES…Mina should somehow return. It would be so great to have her back
The actress who plays Mina wanted to leave, but, they left the door open in case she wants to return someday.
Love this show but I want Mina back!!!! She was a huge part of the show.
If Mina does not return, I am no longer watching.
Well she wanted to leave and she dating one the producer from the show and she also got a part in Indiana Jones part 6 of the movie
