TV Plus (South Africa) - - DRAMA -

Chicago Med Sea­son 2 Tues­days (from 22 Novem­ber) M-Net (*101) 21:30

It’s all hands on deck at the Gaffney Chicago Med­i­cal Cen­ter as sea­son 2 of med­i­cal drama Chicago Med (2015- cur­rent) is wheeled into the OR for im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion. There’s a lot on the line for the med­i­cal staff, whose per­sonal and work lives are go­ing to keep them on their toes, teases Brian Tee, who plays Dr Choi. “It’s a lot more fric­tion-filled. There are go­ing to be great sto­ry­lines and con­flicts.” Here’s what lies ahead for the doc­tors and nurses this sea­son:

Dr Choi isn’t just any old doc­tor this sea­son – he’s been handed the chief res­i­dent po­si­tion. “Choi feels like he knows how to run a good ship,” says Brian, adding that his an­i­mal co-star will be back too. “That bird steals all my scenes! [Laughs]” Dr Hal­stead (Nick Gehlfuss) is go­ing to have a tough time when he doubts his med­i­cal skills and knowl­edge as a pa­tient lies critically in­jured be­fore him. Plus, there’s a new med­i­cal stu­dent to get him riled up. Dr Rhodes (Collin Don­nell) is deal­ing with the most change: his men­tor Dr Downey (Gregg Henry) is dead, he’s work­ing in car­dio­tho­racic surgery, and he’s put his dif­fer­ences with Hal­stead aside… for now. Nurse April (Yaya DaCosta) is still strug­gling with her tu­ber­cu­lo­sis di­ag­no­sis from sea­son 1’s fi­nale (in May 2016) and says Yaya, “She isn’t con­ta­gious and she’s on an­tibi­otics, but this is a huge dis­tanc­ing for her and her boyfriend. He’s hav­ing a hard time.” Nurse Mag­gie (Mar­lyne Bar­rett) ac­cepts that her brother is now her sis­ter Denise (Alexan­dra Grey), but how will she re­act to news that Denise’s cancer is due to her gen­der­swap op not be­ing done prop­erly?

CROSS­ING OVER

Exec pro­ducer Dick Wolf has hinted at a four-show cross­over be­tween Chicago Med, sis­ter shows Chicago Fire (2012- cur­rent) and Chicago PD (2012- cur­rent), as well as Chicago PD’s spin- off Chicago Jus­tice (2017). NB! See more on p9 & 71.

Dr Choi’s new po­si­tion at the hospi­tal is go­ing to keep him busy this sea­son.
