For those who forgot what happened at the end of Season 2–or for those who simply blacked it out from their memory–it concluded in shocking fashion with Dr. Daniel Charles’ life in the balance after being shot by a former patient. If you want to relive that moment or get a quick refresher, here’s a look at the ending:
Fortunately for those who have been waiting impatiently ever since last year’s cliffhanger, it appears–both according to the promo above and the actors involved–that Season 3 will immediately pickup with the fate of Dr. Charles.
“The only thing we know is that the next season starts literally the moment after this one ended,” said Oliver Platt, who plays Dr. Charles. “The good thing for me is that I will probably be horizontal for a while, if I survive.”
S. Epatha Merkerson, who plays Dr. Sharon Goodwill, wasn’t willing to give away any secrets, but she did add some insight into the upcoming season.
“We haven’t been told anything but this,” she said. “What I really loved about the past two seasons is that there were these cases that were totally extraordinary to work on and to learn about. I’m looking for a lot more of that.”
“Chicago Med” has quickly turned into one of the most popular medical dramas on TV, as Season 2 ranked 28th among all shows in total viewers last year. And judging by how last season ended, and how Season 3 is expected to begin, it wouldn’t be surprising if it continued to climb that list.
