Word is out that The Resident has been cancelled by Fox after six seasons. The news comes three months after the medical drama aired its now-final episode. As the show has been on the bubble for a few years now, writers setup the Season 6 ender as a possible series finale should it not return.

While its ratings were notably down this past season, the show still garnered ratings numbers that were above the network's average. But at over 100 episodes, production costs were likely too high to justify another season given its ratings slide.

The Resident stars Matt Czuchry as a senior medical resident 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.
