What Is The Resident?

"The Resident" is, most basically, a medical drama. Entering its fifth season, the show centers on the doctors and nurses at Chastain Memorial Hospital. These individuals face personal and professional challenges and fight for their patients' health along the way. The show is not afraid to tackle real-life stuff either, as season 4 brought the Covid crisis into the mix.

Here is the synopsis for "The Resident" season 5 premiere, titled "Da Da."

An attack by cyber criminals sends the Chastain ER into a tailspin and Kit tries to figure out whether or not to pay the ransom. The Raptor deals with a personal connection to the patients brought into the ER during the attack, leaving them all vulnerable. Meanwhile, Conrad works on balancing life as a new dad, and Devon and Leela debate taking the next step in their relationship in the all-new "Da Da" season premiere episode of THE RESIDENT.
