Fox announced today that The Resident will be returning for a third season. The good news comes near the end of the medical drama's sophomore run, which has five episodes remaining including tonight's airing.

The series premiered early last year as a mid-season entry with a 14-episode run. After a strong showing, Fox moved it into its regular fall lineup for the 2018-2019 season. After another solid start in the fall, the network topped up its sophomore run to a full season of 22 episodes.

The Resident stars Matt Czuchry as a senior resident and Emily VanCamp as a nurse practitioner at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. The series brings to light the hard truths about modern-day medicine - both good and bad. Some lives are saved while others are lost, but expectations are always be shattered.

Look for Season 3 of The Resident this fall.
