Critic Consensus: While adding nothing new to the established medical procedural formula, Dick Wolf's Chicago Med hits its familiar beats forcefully enough to satisfy a few genre enthusiasts.

Tv Season Info

Set in the busiest emergency room in Chicago, "Chicago Med" is the third installment of Dick Wolf's Chicago-set franchise. The first season of this medical drama centers on the lives of the hospital's doctors and staff as they take on unique cases, often going beyond the call of duty to care for their patients. The introduction of a new trauma fellow, Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell), creates tension in the ranks; and Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto), who is seven months pregnant, must learn to navigate life and work after the sudden loss of her husband during his tour of duty in Afghanistan. Also stars Oliver Platt, Nick Gehlfuss and S. Epatha Merkerson.

Critic Reviews for Chicago Med Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (14)

Like Chicago Fire,Chicago Med is a really quick hour of television. Nothing lags, nothing bores, even the familiar.

Chicago Med is an edition to the Chicago franchise (see: P.D, Fire), but I can't see much value here outside of hardcore fans of that particular franchise.

No ER, this.

The original Chicago Med pilot, which was built into an episode of Chicago Fire and is widely available online, was tedious.

Wolf knows how to entertain us with his brand of gritty, pretty crime procedurals and with stronger character development, Chicago Med could improve its prognosis.

Viewers looking for the best new medical drama of this still young season can find it in Chicago Med. Then again, there are only two of them so far.

It's your basic hospital ER drama with nothing really new to offer the genre. But like most, if not all of Wolf's shows (he's the creator of Law & Order), it's well done and has a strong cast.

Good but not best new medical show of the fall.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It is harmlessly watchable, to the extent that I will most likely watch this entire season in five-episode binge bursts.

Medical drama revives classic themes, bloody scenes.
