Release Date for The Resident Season 6
Season 5 of ‘The Resident’ debuted on FOX on September 21, 2021, with the season finale airing on May 17, 2022. The 5th season of the show consists of 23 episodes, each lasting 43-45 minutes.
We have some great news regarding the sixth instalment! Season 6 of ‘The Resident’ was officially renewed by FOX on May 16, 2022. Because the network’s discussions with 20th Television were apparently tough, the decision to continue the show came down to the wire. The renewal was announced before the fifth season finale was televised.
Following the wonderful news, the production team is anticipated to return to work as soon as possible to begin filming season 6. So, if we consider the aforementioned option, as well as the fact that the next season is slated to air during the 2022-2023 TV season, we can anticipate the release of ‘The Resident’ season 6 in September 2022.
The Resident Season 6 Expected Cast Details
- Matt Czuchry (Conrad Hawkins),
- Manish Dayal (Devon Pravesh),
- Jane Leeves (Kit Voss),
- Bruce Greenwood (Randolph Bell),
- Jessica Lucas (Billie Sutton),
- Malcolm-Jamal Warner (AJ Austin)
- Anuja Joshi (Leela Devi),
- Kaley Ronayne (Cade),
- Aneesha Joshi (Padma Devi),
- Jessica Miesel (Jessica Moore),
- Vince Foster (Dr. Paul Chu),
- Michael Hogan (Dr. Albert Nolan)
Tasso Feldman (Irving Feldman), Denitra Isler (Nurse Hundley), Andrew McCarthy (Dr. Ian Sullivan), and Remington Blaire Evans (Gigi) are also set to return.
Emily VanCamp (Nurse Nicolette Nevin) may not return in Season 6 due to the death of her character in Season 5. However, if there are any flashback sequences in the forthcoming instalment, we may see her again.
Miles Fowler (Dr. Trevor Daniels) and Morris Chestnut (Barrett Cain) are also unlikely to return because their characters left Chastain to pursue other possibilities. Summer Selby (Carol Austin) is also unlikely to return, considering her character died in season 5. These exits, on the other hand, may pave the door for new characters to join the cast in the sixth round.
What is the Plot of The Resident Season 6?
Conrad reflects on his late wife, Nic, as he considers moving on from her memories and starting a new relationship towards the end of the fifth season. Bell regains his vision, but his health is causing him to consider leaving Chastain. Padma becomes pregnant and tells AJ that she is expecting twins.
Devon wishes to travel to Baltimore after leaving Chastain, but Leela gets in the way. As a result, they decide to give their relationship a second opportunity. Dr. Ian Sullivan is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and goes through a difficult but successful operation. Kit and Bell get together with their coworkers to celebrate their engagement. Conrad goes to Billie and Cade separately to ask one of them out.
Conrad’s romantic interest may be revealed in the sixth season, either Billie or Cade. Devon might reconsider leaving Chastain now that he’s reunited with Leela. After coming to Atlanta, Ian Sullivan is anticipated to fight his cancer with his daughter Cade.
Kit might inspire Bell to continue working as a surgeon in Chastain despite the difficulties he faces due to multiple sclerosis. Furthermore, the two may be planning a wedding. For the sake of their unborn children, AJ and Padma may spend more time together.
