Plot Synopsis

THE RESIDENT is a one-hour medical drama series that focuses on a young doctor's final years of training, ripping back the curtain and revealing the truth of what really happens -- both good and bad -- at the fictional Chastain Park Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, GA. The series opens with Dr. Devon Pravesh on his first day as an intern at Chastain, where third-year resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins takes him under his wing to teach his unconventional ways for treating patients. Meanwhile, Conrad goes head to head with Dr. Randolph Bell, the Chief of Surgery, who uses power and intimidation to cover up his mistakes. Meanwhile, the hospital's savviest nurse, Nic, uses her know-how to manage the team of egomaniacal doctors while dealing with the admins. They're joined by: Dr. Lane Hunter, the top oncologist in the state of Georgia; Dr. Mina Okafor, a Nigerian rising surgical star recently trained on a new device that could redefine surgery; Claire Thorpe, the tough and pragmatic CEO of Chastain; and Renata Morali, the savvy and elegant head of marketing. FOX debuted the series premiere on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 10pm ET/7pm PT, immediately following the postgame show for the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles. (The actual start time may be later, depending on the duration of the football game.) THE RESIDENT moves to its regular timeslot -- Mondays at 9pm -- with a new episode premiering the following day on January 22.

Season 2 of THE RESIDENT premiered on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on FOX. The second season finds star resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins continuing to make difficult calls in the best interests of his patients. But, having rekindled a romantic relationship with nurse Nicolette 'Nic' Nevin, the two now must face unresolved issues from their past. Conrad's father, Marshall Winthrop, has taken over as head of Chastain, and comes into direct conflict with the hospital's newly minted CEO, Dr. Randolph Bell. Meanwhile, Dr. Mina Okafor continues to work with her larger-than-life mentor, Dr. AJ Austin. However, the skills of new ortho surgeon Dr. Kitt Voss could lead Mina on a different path. First-year resident Dr. Devon Pravesh becomes intrigued by new medical device rep Julian Booth, whose presence at the hospital will upend business as usual for everyone there.

In the season opener, "00:42:30," the staff is forced to treat their patients without technology after a sudden blackout strikes the hospital; Conrad and Devon disregard Bell's mandate to refuse new patients when a child needs emergency care; a premature baby needs heart surgery.
