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.

November 16, 2015 | Full Review…

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.

September 21, 2015 | Rating: D | Full Review…

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

September 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.

November 18, 2015 | Full Review…

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.
