‘Chicago Med’ season one is wrapping up and just for the trailer alone, we know it’s about to get really emotional, really fast. We know Dr. Rhodes is up against the biggest surgery of his life, but what about the rest of the cast?
Luckily, we caught up with Dr. Rhodes himself, Colin Donnell as well as Nick Gehlfuss who plays Dr. Halstead. So, what can they tell us? Well, Dick Wolf keeps his casts (the count is four now, by the way) very tight-lipped, making it all the better when you watch and are seriously shocked. (I’m still not over Shay’s death on Fire, okay?) However, the cast did tell us that after what we see tonight, next season will be nuts.
“For everybody on this show, everybody at the end of season one, ends up in a period of major transition,” Colin told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the NBC Upfronts in NYC on May 16. “It’s a great place to end season one; it just provides such a cool launching point for our second season. And I know they’ve got some major major plans for [next season].” Of course, they have no clue what’s coming up next season but with the way season one ends, we have a feeling the next will be amazing. “The end of season one is awesome. It’s a great way to wrap up what we feel like is a first season.”
“He’s on shaky grounds!” Nick Gehlfuss told us about Dr. Halstead’s current issue at the hospital. “When you enforce the rules, sometimes you want to break them. I may not have a job; and if I do have a job, it may not be at Chicago Med. I was in between two women, and now I need to move on. The sky’s the limit.”
So, has he really moved on from Dr. Manning? After a brief pause, he smiled. “How do you move on from something like that? You really can’t. He’s still single. That’s all I’m saying.” Of course, Colin had to chime in on that one. “Hashtag Manstead for ever.” (Side note: yes yes yes.)
As for the franchise, they are pretty excited to have another one — Chicago Justice — coming on board. “It’s the best feeling ever because we were here last year in their same position — and we’re welcoming them now. It’s so exciting because were making history. It’s never been done,” Nick said. “[Dick Wolf]’s brilliant; he’s proven himself. This is not luck. He knows what he’s doing, and it’s such an honor to be a part of it.”
The finale of Chicago Med airs on Tuesday May 17 at 9PM ET on NBC.
