‘The Resident’ Moves To Sky Witness In The UK With Season 3 Airing Later This Year
‘The Resident‘ has a new residence. Sky Witness has confirmed that the 3rd Season will premiere on the channel later this year after they have rerun Seasons 1 and 2.
The medical drama follows a group of doctors at Chastain Memorial Hospital, as they face personal and professional challenges on a daily basis. The series focuses on the lives and duties of staff members but also delves into the bureaucratic practices of the hospital industry.
Matt Czuchry (‘Gilmore Girls’, ‘The Good Wife’) leads the cast as Dr Conrad Hawkins, alongside Emily VanCamp (‘Revenge’), Manish Dayal (‘Halt and Catch Fire’), Moran Atias (’24: Legacy’), Merrin Dungey (‘Big Little Lies’) and Shaunette Renée Wilson (‘Billions’) with Melina Kanakaredes (‘CSI: NY’, ‘Providence’) and Bruce Greenwood (‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’, ‘Mad Men’).
The series originally aired on Universal TV in the UK but, like a lot of the shows from that channel, vanished from the schedules when the channel was shut down last year. Gradually, the series began to pop up on Sky Witness, starting with ‘Law & Order: SVU’, ‘Chicago Med’, and more recently ‘Coroner’. Last week, Season 1 of ‘The Resident’ popped up on the schedules with Season 1 premiering Saturday, 15th August at 10pm, with episodes continuing to air daily at 11pm. Seasons 1 and 2 previously aired on Universal, but Sky Witness wanted to give people a chance to catch the show who may have missed it on the first airing.
(Spoiler Warning For Season 3 Below!)
For those of you waiting for Season 3, thinks get shaken up at Chastain Memorial, as Red Rock Mountain Medical takes control of the hospital. The doctors are faced with their hardest fight yet against the corrupting influence of money in health care. As each new case enters the hospital, this justice league of courageous young physicians will put their futures and careers on the line to stop “profit over patients.”
I did enquire about ‘Burden of Truth’ and ‘Private Eyes’, which are also still missing following the closure of Universal TV. Sky say they “don’t have any confirmed information to share just yet so stay tuned for any further announcements for them.” So whilst there is no news yet, that does seem to imply they could reemerge at some point, we’ll have to wait and see.
Sky Witness hasn’t yet given an exact date for ‘The Resident‘ Season 3, but it will premiere in September 2020. We’ll let you know when we have a confirmed date.
