Plot

'The Resident' Season 4 Promo still (FOX)

While there is no official synopsis for 'The Resident' Season 4 as of yet, the promo has already revealed that this season of the medical drama will have the coronavirus storyline - similar to other medical dramas such as 'The Good Doctor' who took it upon themselves to make sure this new reality was part of their show. The promo also sees Nic Nevin (Emily VanCamp) say, "These were our colleagues and our friends, health care workers who died in the line of duty,"  in front of a memorial. This is a tribute, we're sure, a tribute to the actual frontline workers that lost their lives during the pandemic.

On a lighter note, thanks to exclusive photos from Entertainment Weekly, fans will get the long-awaited Nic and Conrad Hawkins's (Matt Czuchry) wedding - he had proposed to her last season. The photos show no masks or any precautions, so we're thinking this storyline could be pre-pandemic. The FOX network described the nuptials as "intimate and beautiful", so the fans are in for a happy time before the Covid-19 hits their favorite characters.

WikiFandom's synopsis of the upcoming season reads, "'The Resident' Season 4 continues to shine a light on the daily heroism of today’s health care workers. The provocative medical drama follows the doctors and nurses at Chastain Memorial Hospital, as they face personal and professional challenges and fight for their patients’ health. The new season picks up as Dr Conrad Hawkins and Nurse Practioner Nicolette Nevin tie the knot in an intimate and beautiful wedding, strengthening their already powerful bond. Meanwhile, Chastain is transitioning from a private to public hospital, causing the hero doctors to fight to fix the broken machine from the inside. Dr Randolph Bell finds himself mining his own past to find his estranged former stepson, elite plastic surgeon Dr Jake Wong. 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 and her brilliant mentor, Dr AJ Austin, grow closer than ever, they must learn to maintain a professional relationship within the walls of the hospital."
