We discuss whether there will be a season 7 of The Resident on Fox or if the show has been canceled. 

The Resident is a medical drama following the staff at the Chastain Memorial Park Hospital, as they work tirelessly to solve complex medical cases with the patients that come through their door, as well as trying to solve the numerable problems outside the operating room, such as love triangles and the bureaucracy. Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore, and Roshan Sethi create the show.

The show’s sixth season came to an end on January 17, when the season finale was released on Fox. But as similar medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy have been able to keep their show afloat for over 15 seasons, fans wonder if The Resident will be kept alive a little longer.

Will there be a season 7 of the Fox series The Resident? 

April 8, 2023 Update

It has been confirmed by FOX that there will not be a seventh season of The Resident. Fans will be disappointed to learn that the popular medical drama has been canceled. 

February 22, 2023 Update

Fox hasn’t renewed the medical drama The Resident for a season seven yet.

What might worry fans hoping for more is the reduced episode count in season six compared to other seasons and that the story wrapped up quite nicely in the hospital, as season six was intentionally crafted as a suitable series ender.

But the executive producer Andrew Chapman, recently discussed future ideas that he and the team had in a spoiler full interview with HollywoodLife, showing that they, too, are hopeful that the show is renewed for another season.

When asked directly whether the show had been renewed, he said that he genuinely didn’t know and that he doesn’t think Fox does either. He doesn’t expect a decision until April or May, so the audience probably won’t know for a few months.

Who might be in The Resident Season 7?

The following cast members would likely return for a potential season seven.

  • CEO Kit Voss, played by Jane Leeves
  • Doctor Leela Devi, played by Anuja Joshi
  • Devon Pravesh, played by Manish Dayal
  • Conrad Hawkins, played by Matt Czuchry
  • Billie Sutton, played by Jessica Lucas
  • Padma Devi, played by Aneesha Joshi
  • Doctor AJ Austin played by Malcolm-Jamal Warner

What could The Resident Season 7 be about?

As for the potential plot line, we all want to see Leela’s wedding to Devon (and hope that he goes through with it this time) and see how AJ and Padma are finding co-parenting. A romance that blossomed in the sixth season was between Conrad and Billie, with them professing their love to each other in the final moments of the season.

One of the overarching plot threads of the season was hospital CEO Kit trying to keep the hospital afloat, as it was on the brink of closure due to financial issues. Thankfully, he prevailed and could keep the hospital doors open for longer with more funding. But this doesn’t close the doors to future bureaucratic problems for Kit, and many don’t involve money.

You can watch The Resident with a subscription to Hulu.

    Hoping The Resident returns for many years to come.

  • March 30, 2023 at 3:19 am

    Yes, definitely keep it going for several more seasons. Please don’t short us on episodes. I have watched all the Chicago Shows since they started and the Resident since the beginning. In my opinion The Resident has topped all three of The Chicago 3 shows with the last 2 seasons. Like all the other comments above, I agree that there are still lots of story lines to write about. Please renew!!!

  • April 2, 2023 at 7:11 pm

  • April 3, 2023 at 6:18 am

    With so many things happening in the real world of medicine plots are never hard to find. It’s great to see a medical show that’s actually about medicine and not constant sex scenes. Please keep this so on the air especially now that fans have gotten Billie and Conrad together. Also now would be a good time for Mina to return. Please give us more.

  • April 7, 2023 at 5:33 am

    I hope that you renew, I look forward to the show can’t leave Conrad and Billie hanging. Or everything that happened in season 6. So yes please renew the show

  • April 9, 2023 at 4:27 am

    Please renew, this is my favorite. I always am looking for something to do. Plus, Leela and Devon are getting married please don’t leave us hanging about Devon and Leela, and Billie and Conrad. Don’t let it end yet keep it for 3 or 4 more years please!!! I want to see the 7th season. Don’t leave us hanging like that, please don’t. I love the show. I want to see season 7.

  • April 10, 2023 at 12:10 am

    I believe that you should renew the Resident show. I always look forward every week to watch this show. The Resident is so much better than the other medical show such as Grey’s anatomy or the Good Doctor! The Resident show seem more realistic show! So please renew the Resident!!!!

  • April 10, 2023 at 4:23 pm

    I am shocked to see The Resident cancelled !!! It was my favorite show! The characters were amazing and the storylines great! It’s a shame! Why not go another season with a twist and see if rating increase! It’s a real disappointment.

  • April 11, 2023 at 1:50 am

    I love this show! Sad to see it is cancelled! Maybe ratings are down because not everyone has cable tv and can watch it on fox? Some have to watch it on other platforms like Hulu? Does anyone know how they rate those percentage of viewers?

  • April 14, 2023 at 7:35 pm

  • April 25, 2023 at 12:56 am

    Please bring “The Resident” back. We love this show! It’s been my favorite show since it first aired.???

  • April 25, 2023 at 5:53 am

    You CANT cancel “the Resident” what is America going to watch !?

  • April 26, 2023 at 4:19 am

    Fox is really dumb. This show closed the gap between left and right with topics we may like/dislike but dealt with in a refreshing way. Fox is too managed at the top.

  • April 28, 2023 at 9:24 pm

    You have to bring the resident back for another season. Everyone I know watches the resident and we will give up on everything on FOX if the don’t bring at least an ending to the resident.

  • April 29, 2023 at 12:59 am

    I will ve devastated if “The Resident” isn’t renewed. I love this show and the characters,the story line and have worked as a nurse for 36 years.

  • May 1, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Please bring back another season of The Resident. Best show ever!

  • May 11, 2023 at 1:49 am

    Yes, bring back The Resident! The characters & story lines have been so interesting. It’s good to watch a show about people who work so hard for the good health of others rather than other shows depicting gruesome violence!

  • May 12, 2023 at 6:20 am

    When i heard the show was canceled i was highly upset. Please bring back this show. It is such an amazing show.

  • May 17, 2023 at 11:30 pm

    The Resident has been one of my favorite shows for 6 seasons. It is much better that 911 (which got cancelled but another network took it).
    Some it needs to get out there for another network to take it like they did with 911).
    Of course it was much better befor the killed off Nic. Conrad and Nic were great together.
    They keep cancelling medical shows…………….BUT why? They just keep bringing on a new one. Anonter good one that they cancelled was CODE BLACK with Marcia Gaye Harden. Excellent show….I hate to see them add another new one when the got rid of some of the best. They cancelled the medical show “Good Sam” after 1 season. That was one they should have cancelled after One episode. It was stupid and so beneath the actress who played Erin on Chicago PD. The night shift was also a great show. I still miss that one. I hope they don’t think about cancelling The Good Doctor. I just read that of the Top 10 medical shows in the last 5 years, The Resident came in at #5 (suprisingly Chicago Med is in the 10th position just befor the Good Doctor)

  • May 17, 2023 at 11:56 pm

    The Resident by far is my favorite show. I am devastated and extremely sad that the higher ups are canceling this AMAZING and AWESOME show! Do not cancel!!! Please rethink!!
