Resident Inching Closer to Cancellation, According to New Report

The end may be on the horizon for the resident.

According to TV Line, there is no major chance of the medical drama getting picked up for a seventh season.

“It’s essentially done,” a source close to the show told the outlet.

In a word? Wait!,

Despite The Resident Season 6 finale, which served as a series-ender, there was still hope that the show would be picked up.

While one person’s account of the situation may be inaccurate, TV Line cited “multiple sources” in its report.

More concerning is that it looks like many of the show’s props are being sold, which is usually a sign that a project has come to an end.

Fox told the outlet that no decision has been made regarding the future of the show, but the show’s prognosis is grim.

The Resident season 6 averaged 2.8 million viewers and a 0.34 rating among adults 18–49.

With the fact of Live+7 viewing, the series total viewership rises to 4.4 million and a 0.5 rating.

Veteran shows tend to come at a higher price tag, so they are more difficult to renew when ratings decline.

The network has a lot of options on the drama front, so it could come down to a matter of where the network has a lot of options going into the next season.

Lone Star is delivering stronger ratings in the former slot of 9-1-1: The Resident.

All we can do is wait to find out what Fox’s plans are, but the only drama currently renewed by the network is The Cleaning Lady, which recently picked up a Season 3 renewal.

Matt Czuchry plays Dr. Conrad Hawkins in The Resident. Manish Dayal as Dr. Devan Pravesh. Bruce Greenwood as Dr. Randolph Bell, and Dr. A.J. Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Austin.

The cast includes Jane Leeves as Dr. Kit Voss, Morris Chestnut as Dr. Barrett Cain, Jessica Lucas as Billy Sutton, and Anuja Joshi as Dr. Leela Devi.
