Chicago Med is a medical drama that began airing on NBC on November 17, 2015. “Chicago Med” revolves around the doctors and nurses in the emergency room at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. The premise of the long-running show is that it’s a medical drama set in Chicago. Chicago Med is the third series in Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise. Fun fact, the show does have some really dramatic moments when it crosses over with the other two shows in the Chicago franchise, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD.

Last season, fans saw the season end on a tense note. There have been big changes for the characters and two of them, Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and Dr. Dylan Scott (Guy Lockard), have been placed in a deadly situation. Being trapped in a burning building is not an ideal way to spend an off-season. However, fans are still excited to see how it all unfolds. Wondering how many seasons are there in this medical drama?
