Our beloved medical drama, The Resident, is airing on March 29, with a brand new episode. The series is currently running in its 5th season, Episode 15. With a total of 23 episodes this season, the longest season so far, there is so much more tea and drama to be spilled yet.
The series first premiered back on 21 January 2018 and has been gaining popularity and a steady rating since. The series follows the personal and professional life of people involved with Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. It is adapted from a book by Marty Markary, titled, Unaccountable.
Marty Markary, is not only a writer, but a surgeon, professor and a medical commentator. He knows the nooks and crannies of a hospital and what goes inside, which makes the series all the more interesting; knowing he doesn’t just pluck things out of the air.
The series was purchased by Fox, back in 2017 from Showtime, and it has been renewed for new seasons every year. The series is created by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore, and Roshan Sethi. There are mixed reviews from the critics, however, the series thrives yet, another season.

Episode 16 Expectations
Trevor hasn’t shown up since, after Billie’s hearing. There was a brief mention of her going off to find him, which could bring more drama to the hospital with the mafia looming not too far. With a good two years of luck, how long will Cade be able to escape them?
