The Resident – Total Eclipse of the Heart (1×14)

The Resident/ FOX

It’s obvious The Resident didn’t think it was going to get a second season at FOX.

And that’s a shame because it rushed through storylines that probably would have made for great cliffhangers.

I wonder if Conrad’s father becoming the new Chairman at Chastain was always going to be the ending scene or if they added it in after getting the green light?

I’ve wanted Dr. Lane to pay for what she did to Nic, to all the other dedicated doctors and to all the innocent patients that she’s been mistreating, but I didn’t want it to be wrapped up so swiftly.

If it was that easy to run her of course, why did it take so long?

Everything was wrapped up so neatly. Pravesh admitted Olivia, the ER’s known hypochondriac who admitted Lane diagnosed her with lymphoma and gave her her first dose of chemo.

She was the big break that they’d been waiting for; she put all of their plans into motion.

When Nic, who was bailed out of prison by Conrad’s trusted father (yep, throw some money on it and make the problems go away), realized she didn’t have any cancer markers, they took it up with Dr. Bell.

Now, initially, I thought that Dr. Bell was going to vouch for his girlfriend and help her get rid of all the evidence.

And turns out, Lane thought that too. When he told her to rush to her office and get rid of evidence, she was there in a heartbeat removing more files than there should have been. Jeez, does this woman have any semblance of a soul?

Thankfully, Bell came through just this one time. As she exited the clinic, the FBI took her in as Bell watched on.

Bell is tricky; he may have an ego and he may make decisions that benefit him, but he’s not a terrible person in the way that Lane is.

He’d never misdiagnose an innocent person nor would he treat someone that’s completely healthy. That goes against, probably, every doctor code out there.

Not to mention, Bell has never put anyone before himself. His relationship with Lane definitely wouldn’t change that. Even if he had wanted to help her, imagine how badly that would reflect on his as newly established CEO and on Chastain.

In a way, Lane shot herself in the foot by inching him into the coveted role.

And I can bet each and every one of you felt a ting of joy when she was handcuffed and roughed up in the same way Nic was.

Doesn’t feel as good when you’re the one being set up, does it?

In his victory speech to the press, Bell obviously took most of the credit but surprisingly, mentioned Pravesh, Hawkins and Nevin as the ones who brought it to his attention. That’s worth something, right?

With Lane’s story tied up, they also pumped the gas on Nic and Conrad’s relationship.

They didn’t have time to establish what direction it was going in but after teasing us for so long, they couldn’t leave fans wondering if they’d ever reconcile and pursue the obvious chemistry between them.

Even Mina, the surgeon who swore up and down that she wasn’t made for romance and didn’t have feelings, got a love interest in former heart-transplant patient Micah.

And in addition to getting a new relationship, she also got a reputation as the girl who gave her man a heart-attack during sex.

Okay, Mina! No wonder all the boys are swooning after her.

Micah’s life hung in the balance as it was revealed that he would need possibly life-threatening surgery.

Most of the surgeons refused to take the case on, however, AJ was more that eager to because you know, god complex.

And even during such a tedious and complex procedure, he still embraced the moment to force Mina to confront her emotions. He may have a terrible may of going about it, but he’s going to make her a better surgeon in the long run.

Thankfully, Micah survived even after they kept his heart stopped for an extended monologue and we’ll get to see their relationship flourish next season.

The Resident returns to FOX this fall!

Will Conrad finally have an upper hand now that his father is in charge and putting an end to this rigged system?

Will Chastain start putting patient safety ahead of profit?

‘The Resident’ Renewed for Season 4 at FOX, Expected to Return in 2021

The Resident Reverse Cinderella Recap

The Resident has a pulse! 

Fox has renewed the beloved medical drama for a fourth season! 

The exciting news means that The Resident will be able to conclude the storylines that were interrupted by the coronavirus outbreak, which shut down production on shows indefinitely. 

Season 3 ended abruptly because it wasn’t able to finish filming the episodes. 

We’ll also get to see more of the power-dynamics at play at Chastain as Logan Kim turned his back on the once-invincible Dr. Cain and attempted to schmooze up to Conrad Hawkins. 

While he medical drama had been critiqued for exaggerating and portraying unrealistic incident by medical professionals and the industry, the series has also amassed a rather dedicated following largely due to its thrilling weekly patient cases and the relationship and chemistry between many of its cast members.

Plus, fans love that the series tackles on “ethical” issues surrounding the healthcare industry head-on. 

TV Series Finale indicated that the audiences have tapered off with a 21% drop since the second season, but despite the lower-ratings, there’s no denying that The Resident has a strong pull amongst dedicated fans who watch faithfully.

Unfortunately, similar to many The CW shows, The Resident won’t return until 2021 as FOX released its 2020-2021 fall TV schedule, which relies heavily on football (if the seasons returns as expected) and many animated series. The network plans to hold all scripted offerings for midseason premieres.

FOX also renewed sitcom Last Man Standing leaving Prodigal Son and Outmatched on the fence. 

Are you thrilled The Resident was renewed for season 4?

Will The Resident Be Renewed for Season 4?

The Resident Love Love

When The Resident wrapped up its third season on April 7, it wasn’t the ending that they intended. 

The coronavirus pandemic, which has affected production on many TV shows globally, forced the series to end three episodes shy of the intended finale.

That’s not ideal for fans as we were left on what I’m now referring to as a pre-cliffhanger cliffhanger. It’s the unintended cliffhanger. 

It becomes even more worrisome when you consider that FOX has yet to renew the series for a fourth season. What if the show doesn’t get to tie up loose ends?

The medical drama had been critiqued for exaggerating and portraying unrealistic incident by medical professionals and the industry, but the series has also amassed a rather dedicated following largely due to its thrilling weekly patient cases and the relationship and chemistry between many of its cast members.

Plus, fans love that the series tackles on “ethical” issues surrounding the healthcare industry head-on. 

With all the love for The Resident, how likely is a season 4 renewal?

While many networks take their time deciding whether or not to renew a show, both season 2 and season 3 of The Resident scored renewals before the current season ended. 

Of course, this can’t be directly applied to season 4 since the season ended earlier than expected. 

However, TV Series Finale indicated that the audiences have tapered off with a 21% drop since the second season. 

And though it’s the lower-rated series, there’s no denying that The Resident has a strong pull amongst dedicated fans who watch faithfully.

We’re pulling for a renewal, but if that’s not in the cards, the series should at least be allowed to finish up the intended episodes and a conclusion that’ll allow fans closure.

Of course, even if the series is renewed, there’s no telling when it’ll return. The series usually returns on the fall schedule, but if shooting isn’t allowed to resume come July, there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to film episodes in time. (See what co-creator Amy Holden Jones said.)

It’s possible that The Resident, and many of your other favorite shows, will find themselves with postponed premiere dates. 

Stay tuned as CraveYouTV will update its renewed/canceled list right here
