'Chicago Med' is a medical drama streaming on NBC since November 17, 2015.

'Chicago Med' is the third series in Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise. Fun fact, the show has some really dramatic moments when it has crossover episodes with the other two series of the Chicago franchise, 'Chicago Fire' and 'Chicago P.D'.
