There is hope that VanCamp returns to the series in some fashion, sources tell Variety. Season 5 of the series debuts on September 21, and a brand new promo released on Monday features plenty of peril and a conspicuous lack of VanCamp.
We can’t with this. 😱

Season 4 of “The Resident” incorporated VanCamp’s real-life pregnancy into her storyline, with her character Nic giving birth to a daughter in the season finale. However, the ominous Season 5 promo teases some shocking twists, including a scene where two police officers arrive to deliver some seemingly bad news to Nic’s husband Dr. Conrad Hawkins, played by star Matt Czuchry, and their young daughter.
“If you thought last season changed everything, just wait,” the Season 5 video foreshadowed.
“The Resident” kicked off on Fox in 2018 and was renewed for its fifth season earlier this year. The medical drama follows the dramatic lives of staff members at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. The cast includes Bruce Greenwood, Manish Dayal, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Jessica Lucas, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Jane Leeves and Morris Chestnut.
In addition to “The Resident,” VanCamp plays Agent Sharon Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and most recently reprised her role in the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
“The Resident” is produced by 20th Television. The series’ executive producers include Todd Harthan, Andrew Chapman, Peter Elkoff, Amy Holden Jones, Rob Corn, Antoine Fuqua and Oly Obst.
