Viewers bid their final goodbyes to the doctors and nurses at Chasten Memorial Hospital, the network revealed on Thursday, April 6. The series, which premiered in January 2018, followed Matt Czuchry as Dr. Conrad Hawkins as he faced personal and professional challenges while battling for his patient’s health. Bruce Greenwood (Dr. Randolph Bell), Manish Dayal (Dr. Devon Pravesh), Malcom – Jamal Warner (Dr. AJ Austin), Jane Leeves (Dr. Kit Voss), Jessica Lucas (Dr. Billie Sutton), Anuja Joshi (Leela Devi) and Miles Fowler (Trevor) also played.

Season 6, which ended in January, lost 27% in viewership in its core demographic compared to 2022 and 69% from the show’s first season, which consisted of just 13 episodes. At the time, executive producer Andrew Chapman said TV Insider that he probably wouldn’t know the fate of the series until April or May.

“[We] really thought about how we would build storylines that would close out the season, but if it was going to be a series finale, it would also give our audience and our fans closure to the whole series,” said explained Chapman at the outlet.

In August 2021, news broke that Emily VanCamp – who starred on the show as Dr. Nic Nevin – left the series after four seasons. In the second episode of Season 5, Nic suffered a brain injury from a car accident that ultimately claimed his life. VanCamp, 36, eventually returned for the Season 5 finale in May 2022 to wrap up her character’s story.

“Because so much of the season had been thematically about grief and loss and coming to terms with mortality and how Conrad comes out of his relationship with her and time jumping and being a single dad with Gigi was the right thing to do,” Chapman explained during an interview with AND Canada at the time. “We reached out to her and she was super excited to come back. She hadn’t had a chance to say goodbye to everyone on the show, to the crew, to all the other cast members.

He continued, “At the start of the season, we knew we were going to lose Emily this season, but we didn’t know when we were going to lose her. We lost her in episode 3 and we really had to make do, and it didn’t give us the end of the relationship that we had wanted,” he shared. “We thought we were going to have her for a few more episodes and it was nobody’s fault. She had a medical issue and she had to deal with it, and we fully understood that. But we didn’t. we really couldn’t come full circle with her, so to speak.
