The Resident Season five will open with The Chastain Hospital still in shambles after it was hacked last season. It’s a race against time to fix the hospital and get things running smoothly again as Conrad grapples with his new role within The Consortium while also trying to find out who is behind The Steadman Clinic hack.

What’s new in season five?
The Resident Season Five will pick up exactly where The Resident Season Four left off, with a powerful message that is both timely and important. The show tackled the opioid crisis in season four, but this time around, they’re bringing attention to an even bigger problem – mental health issues across America.
A major theme of The Resident’s fifth season comes from Lea’s own experience working in The White House with mental health initiatives, which makes her a perfect fit for the role she plays on The Resident Season Five.
