The second season of The Resident will receive its UK premiere on Universal TV on Tuesday October 16th at 9pm, it has been announced.
The Resident follows an idealistic young doctor, Devon Praves, during his last few years of training. Under the supervision of a tough and brilliant senior resident, Conrad Hawkins, he soon discovers his chosen profession is not what he imagined and that ethical lines are often blurred. The drama series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and stars Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Bruce Greenwood, Manish Dayal, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves and Glenn Morshower.
Season two finds star resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins continuing to make difficult calls in the best interests of his patients. But, having rekindled a romantic relationship with nurse Nicolette “Nic” Nevins, the two now must face unresolved issues from their past. Conrad’s father, Marshall Winthrop (Glenn Morshower), has taken over as head of Chastain, and comes into direct conflict with the hospital’s newly minted CEO, Dr. Randolph Bell. Meanwhile, De. Mina Okafor continues to work with her larger-than-life mentor, Dr. AJ Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner). However, the skills of new ortho surgeon Dr. Kitt Voss (Jane Leeves) could lead Mina on a different path. First-year resident Dr. Devon Pravesh becomes intrigued by new medical device rep Julian Booth (guest star Jenna Dewan), whose presence at the hospital will upend business as usual for everyone there.
