Things aren’t going to get any easier for the staff at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. FOX has renewed The Resident TV show for a third season. The series currently airs on Monday nights.
A medical drama, The Resident stars Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves, Glenn Morshower, and Bruce Greenwood. The series centers on resident Dr. Devon Pravesh (Dayal), as well as Senior Resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Czuchry), and their colleagues at the Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. Although its motto is, “Committed to excellence,” the hospital is staffed with human beings, and humans are flawed. Now that Devon is on the other side of the institution’s velvet ropes, Conrad wants him to understand the reality of medicine and its delivery.
The second season of The Resident on FOX is averaging a 0.97 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.04 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 4% in the demo and up by 11% in viewership. Compared to the rest of FOX’s scripted series, The Resident is a middle-of-the-road performer in the demo but is number three in viewership.
The season three announcement came from Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, for FOX Entertainment. In a statement, he said, “Amy Holden Jones, Todd Harthan and the team behind The Resident continue to showcase their brilliant storytelling, revealing both the triumphs and tragedy within the medical world. Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp and Bruce Greenwood, along with the stellar cast, have developed rich and compelling characters through their heartfelt performances.”
FOX also renewed 9-1-1 for a third season today. Thorn added, “We want to thank our producing partners, 20th Century Fox Television, who have steered these two extraordinary series. Both 9-1-1 and The Resident have many, many more stories to tell and we can’t wait to deliver them to fans next season.”
