The series stars Matt Czuchry, Bruce Greenwood, Manish Dayal, Emily VanCamp, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves, and Glenn Morshower.

Todd Harthan, Amy Holden Jones, Rob Corn, Antoine Fuqua, David Boorstein, Oly Obst and Phillip Noyce serve as executive producers. Noyce also directed the pilot. 20th Century Fox Television produces.

“Amy Holden Jones, Todd Harthan and the amazing team behind ‘The Resident’ have brilliantly offered viewers the ability to see the medical industry through a different lens,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company. “We can’t wait to watch the exceptional cast, as they continue to roam the halls of Chastain Memorial Hospital.”

The Season 2 premiere of the series on Sept. 24 has delivered 8.9 million multi-platform viewers and a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49, marking the show’s most-watched episode excluding its post-NFC Championship premiere. It is paired with the hit series “9-1-1” on Monday nights.

  1. Haven’t been so excited about a series on FOX since House — truly happy for the cast and crew of THE RESIDENT, and wish them many seasons roaming the halls and saving lives at Chastain.

  2. Thrilled for Matt Czuchry. However, if you think the the series will make it past Season 3, then you’re gonna be surprised. Lucifer was doing equally as well (ratings-wise) in its second season and look what happened…
