The show centres around a group of extraordinary doctors who hold down the city’s most explosive hospital. As part of the Chicago franchise, we have already met a few of Med’s boldest lifesavers.
The ER’s chief resident and trauma surgeon Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) is the brother of Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) from Chicago P.D. We found out he used to work in New York City during his introduction in last season’s episode “Say Her Real Name”, but decides to stay in Chicago when he finds out the hospital needs doctors.
ER nurse April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) was introduced in last season’s Chicago Fire episode “Forgive You Anything”. She is an old high school friend (and potential love interest?) of Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).
Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) is the Chief Administrator of Clinical Operations at Chicago Med. She was introduced in the wildly unpredictable Chicago Fire episode “I Am the Apocalypse”.
Dr. Daniel Charles (Emmy-nominee Oliver Platt), Chicago Med‘s Chief of Psychiatry, made his first memorable appearance in that same episode.
And be sure to see what happens next on the series premiere of Chicago Med on Nov 17 at 7pm et/pt!
