While most shows were down in the ratings, The Resident series on FOX actually saw an increase in viewership. It was still a middle-of-the-road performer for the network but the increase in viewership likely helped the show land a renewal. Will the numbers continue to rise this year or, will they fall? Will The Resident be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A FOX medical drama, The Resident stars Matt Czuchry, Bruce Greenwood, Manish Dayal, Emily VanCamp, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves, and Morris Chestnut. 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. In the third season, the doctors are surrounded by new rules and physicians, as Red Rock Mountain Medical takes over the hospital. The staff includes senior resident internist Conrad Hawkins (Czuchry), resident internist Devon Pravesh (Dayal), nurse practitioner Nicolette Nevin (VanCamp), surgical resident Mina Okafor (Wilson), cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. AJ Austin (Warner), orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kit Voss (Leeves), neurosurgeon Dr. Barrett Cain (Chestnut), and CEO Dr. Randolph Bell (Greenwood).

Please don’t cancel the resident! I have enjoyed watching every episode, this show deals w/real life issues. Awesome medical show, the cast is excellent! P Renew The Resident!!!
The Resident is my favorite show
My favorite show of all time so pissed your not airing season 4.
Please don’t cancel the resident. This has got to be the best medical show on next to Code Black. The characters are real, the plot is interesting. I love how you changed Dr. Bell from a bad guy to one of the team, it’s just AWESOME. This is just a show I cannot miss. Medical shows are everything!!! Keep it in a good time slot, don’t put it up against another major show.
Use common sense when plotting whn to air it and watch the numbers soar again. Please DO NOT CANCEL IT. WE LOVE IT!!!!
This is my greys anatomy replacement when that ends. This show seems to be ALOT more intense I love this show!
Please don’t cancel it is a very good show and speaks to a person
I love the Residents everyone of their episodes was very good to me and I pray that they come back , I was very disappointed tonight because they didn’t come on 4/14/2020 what on earth happened?
Please keep The Resident on it is one of the very best shows on television and I haven’t missed a minute of one episode, absolutely love the characters and the plot lines are always interesting!!
Please dont cancel, it’s one of the best shows next to e. r.
I really hope that the show gets renewed. It addresses many real life situations while of course having the storylines of really interesting characters. I came to be a big fan of Ryan when he played Tom on The Blacklist, and he does a wonderful job bringing his character to life, as do Soo many of the other actors on the show.
Enjoyable show that should be moved back to Monday nights. I would like to see less of the Redrock plots,however.
Please do not cancel The Resident .
