Great news! “The Resident” has officially been picked up by FOX for a second season!
Fox has given a second-season pickup to medical drama series The Resident. This marks the fourth freshman Fox drama to get a Season 2 renewal, joining 9-1-1, The Gifted and The Orville, making it one of the largest groups of first-year dramas to make it to Year 2 at the network. Like the other three, The Resident hails from Fox’s (still-sibling) 20th Century Fox TV.
The Resident, which had an NFL-boosted launch on Sundays, has been an OK performer in its Monday 9 PM slot behind Lucifer, improving the time period by 31% in Adults 18-49 vs. last season. It is Fox’s third-most-watched series behind 9-1-1 and Empire with an average of 7.5 million viewers (most current). The Resident also is tied with The Orville, The Simpsons and Star, which benefitted from an Empire lead-in, as Fox’s third-highest-rated series in 18-49 behind 9-1-1 and Empire.
The Resident, which, along with 9-1-1, is giving Fox potential procedural franchises, is averaging more than 10 million multi-platform viewers per episode. Its penultimate episode airs tonight.
Written by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi and executive produced by Todd Harthan and Antoine Fuqua, The Resident’s first season stars Matt Czuchry, Bruce Greenwood, Manish Dayal, Emily VanCamp, Moran Atias, Merrin Dungey, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Melina Kanakaredes. It centers on a tough, brilliant senior resident (Czuchry) who guides an idealistic young doctor (Dayal) through his first day, pulling back the curtain on what really happens, both good and bad, in modern-day medicine.
Jones, Harthan, Fuqua, Phillip Noyce — who directed the pilot — and Rob Corn executive produce alongside Oly Obst and David Boorstein, while Schore and Sethi serve as co-executive producers for 20th Century Fox TV, 3 Arts Entertainment & Fuqua Films.
“Amy, Todd and all the producers on The Resident set out to create a medical show that viewers haven’t seen before – to peel back the curtain and reveal the truth of what happens, both good and bad, behind the scenes at hospitals across the country. Clearly, they’ve succeeded,” said Fox’s president of entertainment Michael Thorn. “Matt, Emily, Bruce, Manish, Shaunette and the show’s entire cast have turned in consistently heartfelt performances, and we are so excited to go back to Chastain Memorial for another tremendous season.”
Emily was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden last Thursday, April 19th. Here is a clip from the interview.
“The Resident” premiered on Universal Channel UK last week and both Emily and co-star Matt Czuchry were in London to promote the show. Here are some video interviews that have been released from their London promo. You can check them out below.

Let’s put it this way: Chastain Park Memorial Hospital—the institution at the heart of Fox’s freshman drama The Resident—wouldn’t exactly be our top choice for medical care. The place is positively rife with corruption, including a chief of surgery who operates despite secret hand tremors and an oncologist who’s been swindling her patients. But hey, at least they have ethical head nurse Nic Nevin (Emily VanCamp) to be the calm at the eye of this storm.
On tonight’s tense episode, she and on-off flame Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) will challenge the higher-ups once again by treating a homeless Jane Doe. Here, VanCamp offers her prognosis.
Chastain is a pretty hostile work environment. How does Nic keep her cool?
People who actually have a lot of power within themselves don’t need to show it. She knows what she’s doing and she’s incredibly skilled, so she’s able to keep it together when others are losing it.
It’s quite a departure from your alter ego on Revenge, the devious—and unhinged—Emily Thorne!
That was part of the appeal. Playing a borderline sociopath was one of my favorite experiences, but it also took a toll. With Nic, I get to tap into more of my true self. Her maternal side spoke to the stage of life I’m in now. [VanCamp is engaged to former costar Josh Bowman.] I’ve been thinking about having children, and when I read this, it made sense to me.
Nic’s caught in a love triangle with Conrad and another doc, Jude (Warren Christie). Which team are you on?
The wiser choice is obviously Jude, but she has all that history with Conrad. Nic feels like she’s never going to be able to get what she needs from Conrad, and yet they love each other. I always root for love!
