The Resident has left the building.
FOX has cancelled the medical drama after six seasons, confirming that the show will not return for Season 7 in the upcoming 2023-24 season.
Over six seasons, The Resident spawned 107 episodes between 2018 through to what is now the series finale on January 17, 2023.
FOX already has a new medical drama lined up for next season in the form of Doc, and it’s clear that the network was preparing for the cancellation of The Resident, which has suffered further ratings erosions this season, for a while.
Doc is described as follows:
Based on the globally acclaimed Italian series, Doc — Nelle tue mani, which was created and is produced by Lux Vide, a Fremantle Company, and featured Simona Tabasco and Beatrice Grannò of The White Lotus, FOX’s Doc is a new medical drama centered on the hard-charging, brilliant Dr. Amy Elias, Chief of Internal and Family Medicine at Westside Hospital in Minneapolis. After a brain injury erases the last eight years of her life, Amy must navigate an unfamiliar world where she has no recollection of patients she’s treated, colleagues she’s crossed, the soulmate she divorced, the man she now loves and the tragedy that caused her to push everyone away. She can rely only on her estranged 17-year-old daughter, whom she remembers as a 9-year-old, and a handful of devoted friends, as she struggles to continue practicing medicine, despite having lost nearly a decade of knowledge and experience.
Unfortunately for fans of the show, it’s not thought that The Resident will be resurrected on another network or streaming platform.
