The Resident Season 2: Who Got Promoted?

at .

When The Resident returns for Season 2 in the fall, there will be a lot more of both Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Glenn Morshower. 

Per Deadline, the Fox drama series had upped both actors to series regulars ahead of the new run.

Warner plays AJ Austin, a surgeon whose personality gets him into a lot of trouble. The reason? He's very unpredictable, and there's no telling how he will react when the heat is turned up.

Morshower plays Marshall Winthrop aka the new chairman of the board at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. 

The latter's promotion is a no-brainer when you consider the fact that his character is the estranged father of Conrad.

The storylines that can come from Conrad struggling to get on board with his father's new role are endless.

How long will it take before the father and son mend fences? Will they even be able to put the past behind them?

The Resident follows the lives and actions of a group of staff members from a hospital in Atlanta. 

It tackled a lot of hard-hitting cases throughout The Resident Season 1, and while the storylines were called into question by medical professionals, it was still an addictive hour of television every week.

The series averaged 4.5 million viewers and a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 in live + same day figures. With DVR factored in the numbers swelled to 7 million viewers and a 1.7 in the demo. 

It will remain on Mondays in the fall and will be paired up with 9-1-1 which was also a hit for the network when it debuted earlier this year.

The Resident Quotes

Mina: Andrea was supposed to be your guest, but you're alone. Why? 
AJ: We're not together anymore. We broke up.
Mina: What happened? What did you do?
AJ: You see the way Conrad looks at Nic? Andrea deserves someone who looks at her like that, and quite frankly, I'm not that guy. You know if I were to be honest, to me, she was just filling the space that I wanted you to fill.
Mina: I already told you-
AJ: I know. You don't want to lose what we have in the OR. I get it. I don't want to lose that either, Mina. Look, you asked me, right? So I'm telling you the truth. That's what we do, right? Don't worry, I'm not expecting anything.

Marshall: Anybody but Bell.
Conrad: He would be at the bottom of my list.
