Fox cancels fan-favorite series after six seasons- and furious viewers are slamming the ‘worst move ever’

Fox cancels fan-favorite series after six seasons- and furious viewers are slamming the ‘worst move ever’

FOX has snatched a successful, long-running series from their line-up this year.

The TV network recently gave the show The Resident the boot after six seasons, making it the first series Fox canceled in 2023.

The famed medical drama was canceled because it had seen a decrease in ratings over the years.

For season six, ratings averaged about “6.9M viewers per episode after seven days of delayed viewing,” Deadline reported.

The latest season’s ratings were down 12% from season five and 35% from season one.

Fox’s former show last aired in January 2023.

Since then, fans have waited patiently to learn what the future held for the beloved series, Just Jared reported.


On Twitter, fans shared their disappointment in Fox for ridding their roster of The Resident.

“Life can’t be worse,” one fan tweeted alongside a meme of former talk show star Wendy Williams, 58, crying.

Another person tweeted: “Are you f**king kidding me?”

A third person added: “Nooooo!!! This is a crying shame.”

A fourth person ranted: “I’m soooooo pissed right now.”

A fifth declared: “We truly can’t have sh*t in this lifetime.”


Other fans felt the series should’ve left when Emily Vancamp, 36, left the show in season five.

Emily joined The Resident in 2018 as one of the original cast members.

The TV vet’s four-year stint on the drama came to an end on October 5, 2021.

That’s when her character Nic succumbed to her car crash injuries, leaving Conrad (Matt Czuchry) both a widower and a single father.

Actress Emily hinted that she left so that she could be more focused on her family.

She welcomed her first daughter with her husband, and Revenge co-star, Josh Bowman, in August 2021.


Emily has revealed how she left The Resident because her priorities had shifted, but that she was grateful for her time on the show.

Speaking to Deadline, she said: “I loved doing The Resident so much for the four years I was on it.

“We started talking about [my leaving] awhile ago. I spent so many years on network television, but then suddenly priorities shifted.

“I think there comes a moment in every woman’s life—in every person’s life—where it becomes less about work and more about family, and that’s what happened while I was making the show.

“Doing that many episodes in a different city and then you add Covid to that, most of us couldn’t see our families for almost a year.

“It really solidified for me that family is where my heart is at the moment.”
