Basic info and plot
Chicago Med is a critically acclaimed US medical drama television series that premiered on NBC on November 17, 2015, with the second season debuting on September 22, 2016. The series, produced by Wolf Films and Universal Television, is a spin-off from Chicago Fire. It was created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead and developed by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. There are several crossover characters from the Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire series.
The show is the third Chicago-related series in the franchise, and is set in the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center`s emergency room. It focuses on the doctors` daily work, as they cope with a variety of unpredictable situations that arise in the adrenaline-filled setting. Crossover episodes with Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit are set to appear in January and February.
Reviews and possibilities of renewal
Chicago Med has started off with excellent ratings, averaging 7.96 million viewers in L+SD and a 1.72 rating for the first season, thanks in part to the lead-in from The Voice. The second season airs in a different time slot, having been moved to Thursday nights, which is a tough one, and has averaged 6.92 million viewers per episode so far, scoring a 1.34 demo rating. There`s been no word on the series` renewal for a third season yet, but all signs are currently pointing to a bright future for the Chicago Fire spin-off. Unless for some reason the series experiences a sharp drop in ratings later on in the season, there will almost surely be another season of this dramatic take on the professional lives of Chicago doctors. Stay tuned, and we’ll keep you informed.
UPDATED November 22, 2016: NBC`s top-rated medical drama Chicago Med is officially on Christmas hiatus as of November 10, 2016, when episode 8 was broadcast, drawing an audience of 6.71 million viewers. Among the events of the midseason finale are the appearance of a patient in need of a kidney transplant, April`s discovery of her pregnancy and her worries that the TB treatment may harm her baby, the death of Dr. Reese`s patient and a budding romantic interest between Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Robin Charles. The ratings are exceptionally steady, as the series barely lost any viewers since the launch of season 2 with 7.02 million fans tuning in, and the audience share and demo rating also remain rock solid at 5 and 1.4, respectively, equal to the season premiere numbers. The back half of the current season will return on January 5, 2017, and if you don`t want to miss the return of the show, please sign up for our automatic updates.
