Chicago Med airs on NBC Thursday October 27th at 9pm. Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) tends to a young cancer patient and struggles to inform the parents of her dire condition. Elsewhere, Dr. Reese (Rachel DiPillo) gets contacted by Danny (guest star Nick Marini), the troubled young man, and turns to Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) and Det. Lindsay (guest star Sophia Bush) for help in resolving a difficult situation. Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) and Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) do their best to clear the logjam in the hospital and Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) fine-tunes his instincts after both Dr. Latham (guest star Ato Assandoh) and Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) pick up on things he doesn’t. Meanwhile, a teenage science geek and her friends impress Dr. Choi (Brian Tee) and Natalie with their bio-engineering lab.
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (the “Law & Order” and “Chicago” franchises), Chicago Med is an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s newest state-of-the-art trauma center and into the lives of the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who hold it all together.
Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) has to deal with the challenges of becoming the ER’s newest attending, chief among them supervising Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto), emergency pediatrics resident and longtime object of his affection. Rising star Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell) steps out of his comfort zone as he transitions into the cutthroat world of cardiothoracic surgery. Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt) remains the Sherlock Holmes of psychiatry, while training neophyte intern Dr. Sarah Reese (Rachel DiPillo) in the mysteries of the human mind. Former Navy flight surgeon Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee) brings his battlefield skills to the front lines of Chicago’s busiest ER. Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson), the venerable head of Chicago Med, balances the pressure of running the city’s largest hospital against maintaining an atmosphere of quality care and compassion.
April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) is a smart, bold and intuitive ER nurse dealing with an illness of her own as well as a relationship that might be moving too fast for her to handle. Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) is the confident charge nurse and the eyes, ears and brain of the emergency department. Joining the team this season will be ex-Chicago Fire stalwart Jeff Clarke (Jeff Hephner), a face from Natalie’s past now working side-by-side with her as a fourth-year med student, and Dr. Isidore Latham (Ato Essandoh), Connor’s strange and difficult new mentor.
Together, they will confront Chicago’s most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion and state-of-the-art treatment. Inspired by ripped-from-the-headlines cases, Chicago Med will weave cutting-edge medicine with the personal drama that comes with working in such a high-intensity environment. Through it all, familiar faces from “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Justice” will intertwine with Chicago’s finest medical heroes.
