About the show
Chicago Med is the newest addition to the roster of original drama television shows which are at the moment airing on the NBC channel in the United States. As you have already probably guessed from its title, the new medical drama series is also the newest addition to the popular NBC’s franchise Chicago, with the other two series chronicling the daily operations of firefighters and police officers in Windy City. As all other installments of the Chicago franchise, this new medical drama was created and executive produced by an award-winning, acclaimed producer Dick Wolf. A collaborative effort between Universal Television and Wolf Films, the new drama series was first released on NBC on November 10, 2015.
The storyline is obviously set in Windy City and it chronicles the daily operations and the professional and personal lives of the biggest and busiest hospitals in the city. There is going to be drama, life and death situations, romance, competition and intensity – everything that makes for a good TV. The medical drama stars Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Torrey DeVitto, Rachel DiPillo and others.
Critical response and renewal hopes
Season 1 of Chicago Med came out on the NBC channel in the US on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT and at the moment it is expected to consist of at least 13 one-hour episodes. The debut of the new drama series was another success for the network: the premiere episode drew in more than 8.6 million total viewers, making it the number 1 scripted TV series that evening among all networks. Broadcast of a second episode made a record if its own: having attracted more than 7.6 million viewers, the episode has delivered 50% higher viewership when compared to the previous TV season’s average. The reviews have also been great. Viewers see the similarity to other Chicago series and appreciate the emotional thrill and the diversity of characters the show brings. We would be very surprised if the series didn’t get greenlit for another run.
