Release Date And Expected Cast
As we know, the first season of Chicago med was released on 17th November 2015 on NBC. After its successful run, the show was renewed for the next three seasons. And accordingly, the sixth season was released on 11th November 2020. And now the fans of the show are getting ready for the seventh season that is scheduled to be premiered on NBC on 22nd September 2021.
Both DeVitto and DaCosta are quitting the program after six seasons and more than a hundred episodes and will not be a part of the main role for the forthcoming season seven. It’s difficult to imagine the program without April and Natalie, who has been a part of it since the beginning. However, the happy news is that the rest of the group will return for the future season.
Oliver Platt, Nick Gehlfuss, Brian Tee, and S. Epatha Merkerson have all inked new deals to stay on the program. Marlyne Barrett and Dominic Rains are also slated to return, as previously reported.
NBC will also be aiming to replace the vacuum left by DaCosta’s and DeVetto’s exits with some new arrivals, as well as a better role for one of the show’s newest members.
However, there is good news for the fans of the show. That is after his first appearance in the sixth season of the series. Fan-favourite Steven Weber will be returning for the seventh season. But this time, fans will see more of his character as it is reported that Steven Weber’s character “Dean Archer” has been rightfully promoted. In the sixth season, we have seen his character joining the team as interim chief of the ED.
There is a couple of new addition to the team as well with Guy Lockard and Kristen Hager. Guy will be playing the role of Dr. Dylan Scott. A Chicago police officer left his job to become a doctor. At the same time, Kristen will be taking up the role of Dr. Stevie Hammer. A scrappy and brilliant emergency room attending physician. These two new additions will be filling up the gap made due to the exit of DeVitto and DaCosta.
