"Chicago Med" viewers have waited a long time for the medical drama to return. The wait is almost over because the series is returning to NBC on Tuesday, November 21 for its third season. Fans of the show are ready to find out what happened after last season's cliffhanger. Very soon everyone will know the details of Dr. Daniel Charles' condition after he was shot during the final moments of Season 2.

Season 3

Because the third season is starting so late, there will be only 20 episodes instead of the usual 22 episodes. The series will move back to Tuesdays when it takes over the timeslot that "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders" currently has.

Since it has been such a long time since Season 2's finale, viewers might have forgotten some of the details. In the cliffhanger, Dr. Charles was shot by a former psych patient who was very angry because the psychiatrist had such a busy day that he didn't have time to speak to him at all. When the show ended, Dr. Charles was lying on the pavement in front of the hospital. People will find out his condition in the first episode of the upcoming season.

The other characters will continue their lives as they deal with some of the same issues they had in the two previous seasons. Some new drama will occur, and the Hollywood Reporter lets us in on some of the interesting things that will happen in the upcoming season.

For instance, two new romances will develop between the doctors. Halstead, played by Nick Gehlfuss and Manning, played by Torrey DeVitto will become involved. Choi, played by Brian Tee and April, played by Yaya DaCosta will also be in a relationship.

Other Chicago shows

"Chicago P.D." returned for the fall season on September 27 and is going strong with a few changes from the last season.

"Chicago Fire" switched to Thursday nights. However, it came back for only six episodes from September 28 to its finale on November 2. Those six episodes were jam-packed and very intense. The show is ending its fall season soon to give way for football to air on NBC. It will return early in 2018.

Unfortunately, "Chicago Justice" was canceled on May 22, 2017, after only one season and 13 episodes.

This was the first and only one of the shows in the franchise to be canceled. Fortunately, actor Jon Seda who left "Chicago P.D." to appear on "Chicago Med" was able to get his previous job back as a regular on the police drama.

For the remainder of the year, "Chicago P.D." that is now in its fifth season will continue on Wednesday nights and "Chicago Med" will air on Tuesday nights. Viewers will miss "Chicago Fire" until it returns next year.
