FOX Renews 'The Resident' for Season 2

FOX has today renewed the original drama series The Resident for a second season. The renewal means the network is bringing back all of its first year dramas for the 2018-19 schedule - including 9-1-1, The Gifted and The Orville.

The drama stars Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Bruce Greenwood, Moran Atias, Merrin Dungey and Melina Kanakaredes.

Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi created the drama. Jones executive produces with Antoine Fuqua, Phillip Noyce, Oly Obst, David Boorstein and Todd Harthan. 20th Century Fox Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, Fuqua Films, Up Island Films and Nickels Productions produce.

"Amy Todd and all the producers on The Resident set out to create a medical show that viewers haven't seen before - to peel back the curtain and reveal the truth of what happens, both good and bad, behind the scenes at hospitals across the country. Clearly, they've succeeded," said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX. "Matt, Emily, Bruce, Manish, Shaunette and the show's entire cast have turned in consistently heartfelt performances, and we are so excited to go back to Chastain Memorial for another tremendous season."
