This season, a glimpse at the harrowing nightmare that has been COVID-19’s relentless grip on urban hospitals will give way as the series jumps forward to sunnier days.

With black-hearted Red Rock Mountain Medical figurehead Logan Kim ousted, the rudderless hospital finds its new CEO in star orthopaedic surgeon Dr Kit Voss (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Jane Leeves) when she spearheads Chastain’s transition from a private to a public hospital. Now, after three seasons of bucking the system, the doctors have a seat at the table – and will fight to fix the broken machine from the inside.

On the personal side, Dr Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) and nurse practitioner Nicolette Nevin (Emily van Camp) tie the knot in an intimate and beautiful wedding, strengthening their already powerful bond. Dr Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood) finds himself mining his own past to find his estranged former stepson, elite plastic surgeon Dr Jake Wong (Conrad Ricamora). Bell attempts to bring Dr Wong to Chastain to increase the number of world-class surgeries at the hospital and to repair their complicated past.

Additionally, as star surgical resident Dr Mina Okafor (Shaunette Renée Wilson) and her brilliant mentor, Dr AJ Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), grow closer than ever, they must learn to maintain a professional relationship within the walls of the hospital.

“The fourth season of The Resident kicks off what is sure to be a bumper year of television for Fox fans with a generous dose of premium genre-defining series. We look forward to more exhilarating highs and lows as the team at Chastain Memorial Hospital face the realities of modern-day medicine” said Evert van der Veer, VP, Media Networks, The Walt Disney Company Africa.
