First-look photos from the second season premiere of FOX’s The Resident have officially dropped, and although details and loglines on the Sept. 24 premiere have yet to be released**, Fox promises that the season ahead will be a fraught one for the docs and residents of Chastain.
Season 2 will find Conrad (Matt Czuchry) continuing to make difficult calls in the best interests of his patients. However, having rekindled his relationship with Nic (Emily VanCamp), the two now must face unresolved issues from their pasts.
Meanwhile, Conrad’s father, Marshall (Glenn Morshower), has taken over as head of Chastain, and comes into direct conflict with the hospital’s newly minted CEO, Dr. Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood).
And while Mina (Shaunette Renée Wilson) continues to work with her larger-than-life mentor, Dr AJ Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), the skills of new ortho surgeon Dr. Kitt Voss (Jane Leeves) could just ead Mina on a different path, altogether.
Finally, our first-year resident Devon (Manish Dayal) becomes intrigued by new medical device rep Julian Booth (guest star Jenna Dewan, Step Up), whose presence at the hospital will upend business as usual for everyone there.
The season kicks off with episode 2×01, titled “00:42:30” on Monday, Sept. 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

A BLACKOUT AT CHASTAIN CAUSES TENSIONS THROUGHOUT THE HOSPITAL
A blackout at Chastain Memorial Hospital requires the staff to treat their patients without the help of any technology. Bell orders the staff to stop accepting new patients and transfer those on life support, but when a child in need is rushed to the ER, Conrad and Devon go against the mandate. Meanwhile, Mina and Austin are tasked with performing heart surgery on a premature baby, despite the lack of power, and Nic works tirelessly to organize the staff and patients who stay during the blackout
