The Resident And Everything About The Resident Season 5

The Resident is an American medical drama series created by Amy Golden Jones, Roshan Seth, and Hayley Schore. The show is actually based on the work of Marty Makarh, known as “the Untouchable” and first premiered on FOX TV on January 21, 2018. The series has been increasingly compared with other medical dramas like “The Good Doctor”.

The show is based on the lives of medical staff working at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital and highlights the harsh truths in the medical industry as a whole! Although The Resident tries to bring out the reality behind the Medical Industry, it hasn’t been accepted fairly by the professionals in the field of medicine who claim that the series is rather “unrealistic!”

Critical reviews and other viewer ratings of The Resident were fairly good with 7.1/10 ratings on IMDb. Other platforms like Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes gave pretty average ratings to the show and USA Today even reportedly issued that “The series can’t save itself”.

The series has 4 seasons so far and season 5 is about to premiere on September 21 on Fox.  Due to the Pandemic, season 3 of The Resident had to be cut short, and hence the season 4 started off with picking the loose ends while depicting the early years of the Pandemic! Let’s recap our knowledge of The Resident and see what we can expect in the new season!

The Resident Season 5: What To Expect? SPOILER ALERT!!

As we all know, season 4 of The Resident started off with our Docs dealing with the initial outbreak of the pandemic and how it affected the Hospital staff! The story kicked off with usual hospital emergencies and drama but things took a beautiful turn with the marriage of Nic and Conrad and by the end, they had one beautiful daughter! But that’s not all! The series finale really left us trembling, thinking that this was it! No more of The Resident! 

Old conflicts resolved, and new beginnings, this was how The Resident season 4 ended. So it was pretty obvious for the fans to believe that the show had ended! While now we know that it wasn’t the case! The show is going for another run and The Resident season 5 is on its way! So in for spoilers? Here you go!

Although we get to see one of our favorite couples tying the knot, things won’t stay like that for long! As you might have heard the news that VanCamp has officially planned to leave the show, we are not sure how this all will lead to in season 5! We hope nothing tragic happens to her character! Let’s hope for the best as VanCamp has said that she can make guest appearances in the show, so maybe the worst won’t happen!

Shaunette Wilson aka Mina Okafor is also quitting the show, so we’ll be saying goodbye to her and our favorite surgical resident on the show!

So far, the synopsis of three episodes of The Resident season 5 are out and sadly they don’t give us any details about what will ensue in this season! Although the second episode has surely left us skeptical with it saying “a doctor is found unconscious in an elevator!” Who could be this doctor? Let’s wait for the season to premiere and get all our answers!
