The third season of Chicago Med, an American medical drama television series with executive producer Dick Wolf, and producers Michael Brandt, Peter Jankowski, Andrew Schneider and René Balcer (uncredited), was ordered on May 10, 2017. The season premiered on November 21, 2017. This season marks the final regular appearance of main character Sarah Reese Portrayed By Rachel DiPillo The season concluded on May 15, 2018, and contained 20 episodes.
After making her debut in the season 2 finale as Dr. Ava Bekker, Norma Kuhling returned in a main role for season 3. Michel Gill appeared in multiple episodes as Bob Haywood, Dr. Reese's (Rachel DiPillo) estranged father, who is admitted to the hospital as a patient. On November 22, it was announced that Arden Cho would be joining the cast in a recurring role as Emily Choi, Ethan's (Brian Tee) adopted sister. Malcolm McDowell guest-stars as Dr. Jaffrey, a distinguished heart surgeon and Dr. Bekker's mentor.
The third season of Chicago P.D., an American police drama television series with executive producer Dick Wolf, and producers Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, and Matt Olmstead, premiered on September 30, 2015, and concluded on May 25, 2016. The season contained 23 episodes.
It was a particularly dramatic year for the team, so let's recap the finale of Chicago Med season 3. Chicago Med is one part of Dick Wolf's sprawling Chicago franchise, which also includes hit shows like Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. The only installment of the franchise to date to not prove a success was Chicago Justice, starring Philip Winchester (Strike Back) and Carl Weathers, which was canceled after one season. Chicago Med, on the other hand, has really connected with viewers and was recently renewed for a fifth season.
Chicago Med season 3 finale \"The Tipping Point\" was a particularly dramatic episode for all involved. Dr. Charles, played by Oliver Platt (X-Men: First Class), visited Robert Haywood, the father of Dr. Reese (Rachel DiPillo). Charles suspects Haywood of being a serial killer and when he collapses after being confronted with this accusation, Charles stops himself from performing resuscitation when Sarah walks in and finds them. This later causes Reese to leave the show in the season 4 premiere, as she feels she can't trust her mentor anymore.
Dr. Rhodes, played by Colin Donnell (The Affair) rejoins an operation on conjoined twins, which proves to be such as success he's offered a new position at Mayo Clinic. This causes tension between him and love interest Dr. Ava Bekker (Norma Kuhling), who feels he used the operation to display his skills. The finale ends without revealing if he accepted the offer or not. Elsewhere, Will finally proposes to Natalie after waiting for the perfect moment - in this case, he proposes right after they have a fight over a doctor he kissed. Her answer isn't revealed either, though the season 4 premiere reveals they're engaged.
Finally, Ethan (Brian Tee, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows), finds his sister Emily (Arden Cho) at a homeless shelter. After ignoring her problems, he decides he wants her to come live with him, which causes April (Yaya DaCosta) to break up with him. Like the name implies, \"The Tipping Point\" was an emotional ride for the main characters of Chicago Med season 3, which had a major impact for many of them in the next season.
Chicago Med is set to return for season three on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. The third-year drama is moving to Tuesdays to take over the post-This Is Us time slot currently occupied by Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, another Dick Wolf production. Chicago Med takes over the spot long occupied by flagship series Chicago Fire, which is now airing on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) is a smart, bold and intuitive ER nurse navigating the hospital politics of dating a doctor and co-worker. Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) is the confident charge nurse and the eyes, ears and brain of the emergency department. Joining the team this season is rival Dr. Ava Bekker, a perennial thorn in the side of Dr. Rhodes while his girlfriend and epidemiologist Robin Charles (guest star Mekia Cox) recovers from her rare illness. April's ambitious brother Noah Sexton (guest star Roland Buck III) joins the ER as its newest physician.
When Christmas comes around, it's usually a memorable holiday full of eggnog drinking, gingerbread house building, and sweet gift-giving. It's also the particular holiday season where TV is full of Christmas-themed episodes from all our favorite shows. \"Chicago Med\" got the chance to present their holiday-specific episode with Season 3's cleverly titled \"Naughty Or Nice.\" Unfortunately, there is nothing particularly nice about the episode's opening scene, which has a moment so hard to watch it's probably capable of killing any ounce of Christmas spirit.
There will also be more of the mini-crossovers, in which one character from one show appears on another, with the three Chicago series airing the same night this season. \"You'll regularly see some characters from P.D. popping up with us and us going over to Fire and P.D.,\" he said.
When it comes to medical dramas, Chicago Med is often praised for being the most realistic. It's also a medical drama that has a habit of bringing on characters who stick around for a while. Part of NBC's One Chicago universe, which includes Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD, Med has managed to maintain a relatively steady cast of characters throughout its seven seasons so far. While there have been in-and-out rotations of minor characters, most of its main doctors, nurses, and other staff have remained. One key love interest for one of the show's long-running characters, Robin Charles, however, bucked the trend. She was there, and then she wasn't. Many fans still don't know why.
Played by Mekia Cox, who appeared in one episode of Grey's Anatomy before jumping to NBC for another medical drama, Robin was a unique addition to the show that was seemingly never meant to last. Overall, Cox and her character only appeared in less than a seasons' worth of episodes throughout her time on the show. Here's why the actor left Chicago Med and returned briefly several seasons later.
Cox played epidemiologist Robin Charles, daughter of Chicago Med psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Charles. She joined the series in Season 2 and became the love interest of Dr. Connor Rhodes later that season.
Toward the later half of Season 4, Robin returned to Chicago with her mother, who had been diagnosed with cancer since she left to live with her in Season 3. She reunited with both her father and Rhodes, but it was clear she wouldn't be planting roots back in the area anytime soon. Her main focus was on her mother's rapidly declining health, which was what ultimately brought her back briefly in the show's next season.
Sure did [make it more complicated], because when we were originally going into this season we were going to have the first episode be the same night as he was shot. Then we learned, 'No, you're on three months later and you need to be in sync with the other shows.' So, we had to adjust it to be three months after... But that took some retooling and some rethinking about how storylines changed.
If you've kept tabs on Chicago Med, you may already know that the series was planned to air at the same time as its sister shows Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. this year. As has been known to happen with television, that plan changed and Chicago Med was held for a November premiere while Fire and P.D. premiered earlier in the fall. In order to stay on the same timeline, the entire plan for the first part of the season had to change, as well.
If it weren't for NBC, we may have had a whole different opener for Chicago Med this season. As it stands, we dealt more with the emotional state of Dr. Daniel Charles following his injury than a major will-he-or-won't-he-die episode. His opinions about his injury were at odds with Dr. Sarah Reese's during the first episode, and it seems as if both of them are coming from different places regarding his mental state, and with good reason. We'll have to wait and see what will happen with that story as the season moves forward, but one thing is for certain, Chicago Med does a great job in its first Season 3 episode of making it seem as if the timehop was by design and not by circumstances.
