‘The Resident’ is reportedly set to return in February 2022.

Calling all fans of Fox’s The Resident! While the news of the show taking a break with its fall finale rubbed many viewers the wrong way, it appears that the show will return much sooner than we all originally thought.

Things have been a bit hectic for the doctors on 'The Resident' leading up to the fall finale.

If it’s not one thing, it’s another for the doctors at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. In a previous episode, Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood) realized that he had a tremor when he brought a coffee to Dr. Kit (Jane Leeves) who had pulled an all-nighter at the hospital.

Naturally, a tremor is a major cause of concern since this can affect Dr. Bell’s abilities in his day-to-day life. Not to mention, things got worse as he experienced another tremor with blurred vision as he was helping a patient with Dr. Leela (Anuja Joshi).

Dr. Bell ended up leaving and later explained that he had a pinched nerve and vertigo. Even though Dr. Leela understood the situation, she was concerned about his well-being.

In Episode 9, Dr. Bell decided to speak with Dr. Conrad (Matt Czuchry) about his condition. He requested to be tested and asked for the information to remain private and Dr. Conrad obliged.

Unfortunately for Dr. Austin, the one day he had off to work on his grant proposal was filled with having to cover a shift in the ER and interviewing a few candidates as his replacement. However, he couldn’t find the perfect replacement and Dr. Kit agreed that burnout is getting worse for the staff. Not to mention, Dr. Austin tried his best to juggle his surgeries and keep up studio appearances, all while caring for his mom.

And with the fall finale airing Dec. 7, 2021, viewers are in for a few twists and turns. Per Cartermatt, the Episode 10 synopsis reveals that Kit’s experimental Flight Go team program sends Conrad into the field. Dr. Devon (Manish Dayal) works with Trevor (Miles Fowler) on a patient with a mysterious fever.

Plus, Dr. Bell has continued to keep his condition a secret from the rest of the doctors, but they’re all starting to become suspicious. Will the team find out about Dr. Bell’s tremors? Will the cause of the mysterious fever be revealed? Only time will tell.

Tune into The Resident Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
