After six seasons, Fox has formally canceled the medical drama, which TVLine recently listed as one of 13 broadcast shows with highly iffy futures. Co-creator of the show Amy Holden Jones tweeted on Thursday, “It was a terrific run. “You can watch #TheResident on @hulu without any commercials. Today is a day of thanksgiving for our incredible cast and crew and the unforgettable experience we had together.
This season, The Resident had ratings that were 10 and 29% lower than those of Season 5: 4.4 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (with Live+7 playback). It boasts the fourth-largest audience (after only the 9-1-1s and Accused) out of the 15 scripted shows Fox has so far shown this TV season, yet it ties for ninth place in the demo.
Early in March, when Georgia-based estate auction company Peachtree Battle stated that it would shortly be having “a major network medical drama prop and liquidation” sale, the show’s chances of being renewed started to look exceptionally bleak. Many of the props from The Resident, which was filmed outside of Atlanta, were easily identified by observant viewers.
A Resident insider told TVLine at the time that the show was “basically done,” but a Fox representative insisted that no official decision had been made regarding the show’s future.mThe Season 6 finale was purposefully scripted as a proper series ender if the show was not renewed, Jones previously told TVLine.

“In all my years in the industry, this cast is the happiest and most cohesive I’ve ever seen. The amazing team enjoys going to work. I’ll always be proud of everything we accomplished and the manner we did it. There will be sadness if it ends, but we have rung the bell.
