Chastain Memorial Hospital is staying open for the 2022-23 television season. The Resident has been renewed for a sixth season by FOX. The fifth season finale airs tomorrow night.
A medical drama series, The Resident stars Matt Czuchry, Manish Dayal, Bruce Greenwood, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves, Anuja Joshi, Jessica Lucas, and Miles Fowler, with Emily VanCamp, Morris Chestnut, Stephen Wallem, and Glenn Morshower recurring. The series follows a group of doctors at Chastain Memorial Hospital, as they face personal and professional challenges on a daily basis. Although its motto is, “Committed to excellence,” the hospital is staffed with human beings, and humans are flawed. The staff includes Chief Resident Conrad Hawkins (Czuchry), resident internist Devon Pravesh (Dayal), cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. AJ Austin (Warner), orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kit Voss (Leeves), surgical intern Leela Devi (Joshi), neurosurgery resident Billie Sutton (Lucas), neurosurgeon Dr. Barrett Cain (Chestnut), and former CEO Dr. Randolph Bell (Greenwood).
The fifth season of The Resident averages a 0.43 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.13 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 22% in the demo and down by 11% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). In the live+7 day ratings, the season averages a 1.40 demo with 8.21 million. In the live+7 day ratings, the season averages a 0.70 demo with 4.82 million.
The fate of this show on the network came down to the wire and the series wasn’t included in FOX’s 2022-23 announcement. While the renewal of one of FOX’s established drama series would seem like a slam-dunk, decisions have become more complicated since the sale of the show’s studio, 20th Television, to Disney. With fewer people watching shows via traditional commercial-supported television, a network’s profits on shows produced by outside studios are a lot smaller than they used to be.
I love love love Matt! Sometimes I dream about us together!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
One of my favourites. Always has a dangerous side to it.
Best show on network television. The writing is incredible. Great cast. A+
Yes, I love this show, and I want it to be on again for the 23-24 season as well. My whole family watches it. My two sons (two separate addresses and email addresses, my sister, separate address and email, and me.
We love this medical drama!! This is one of the shows we never miss ; the writers are excellent and the actors almost all play lovable and respectable roles, which is rare on tv. Keep it up for many more years!
I love the TV program the resident I’ve been watching it since I it came on. I’d be heartbroken if they took it off. I’m so glad you nude for another season and I’m looking so forward to the programming. And I hope it’ll be around for many years. That’s the only reason I watch Fox that includes 911 lone Star. I enjoyed leaving these comments.
Thank Hell it was renewed. The longer they delayed the announcements, the closer I was to sharpening my pitchforks and taking a trip up to Fox headquarters. I’m probably still going to have to visit CW as it is.
So happy my favorite show was renewed.
