The doctors of Chicago Med have their hands full in season 2.
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?
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.
