The freshman drama will return for Season 2.
February 1, 2016
NBC announced today that Chicago Med has been renewed for a second season. The freshman spin-off will join the already-renewed Chicago Fire and Chicago PD in returning for the 2016-2017 television season. Fans of the Chicago series can also look forward to a fourth entry in the franchise, titled Chicago Law, that was recently put into development.
Along with picking up Chicago Med for a sophomore season, the network also extended its relationship with producer Dick Wolf today with a new 5-year deal that will keep him at NBCUniversal through 2020. Wolf has two successful franchises on the network with the Chicago series as well as Law & Order having both spawned multiple spin-offs.
1. Rogue doctor bucking the corporate tyranny of the hospital and does the wrong thing for the right reason.
2. Critically ill patient obsesses over the well being of loved one to the point of endangering his/her self and everybody around them.
3. Crazed patient or family member of patient takes hostages in order to force an outcome that probably would have happened anyway.
4. Seemingly routine condition spirals out of control, and the happy outcome that was expected, ends in tragedy. Doctors second guess their decisions.
The only way to prop up these very predictable plots is how well the soap opera of the character's lives plays out. And frankly, I haven't seen enough character development in this show to care much about them.
