Rumor: Chicago Med Renewed + Full Cast to Return
While no official announcement has been made yet, it’s pretty much a given (according to Variety) that Yaya DaCosta’s hit NBC series Chicago Med will be returning for a third season. Among its scripted shows, the hospital-based drama is NBC’s sixth highest rated in demo (avg 1.26), third highest rated in total viewership (avg 6.7 mil.) and is part of Dick Wolf’s always reliable ‘Chicago’ franchise.
Yaya has been with the show since the beginning and will reportedly be returning along with the rest of the cast for the upcoming season. Among shows that feature black women as leads or co-leads, Chicago Med is the sixth to be renewed for the 2017-18 season, joining Fox’s Empire and Star, and ABC’s Black-ish, How to Get Away with Murder and Scandal.
Update: Chicago Med has officially been renewed by NBC.
