But the network has revealed the show will now return Tuesday, January 25, a whole week earlier.

The network made the announcement on Twitter.

"We're coming back in a big way," reads a tweet from the official account for the show.

If you watch The Resident online, you know the series has been firing from all cylinders this season.

Many medical dramas grow stale after their first few seasons, but The Resident remains one of the best medical dramas on the small screen.

The Resident Season 5 Episode 10 left fans with many questions after Bell turned to Conrad for assistance with his tremors and vertigo.

Despite Conrad seemingly finding a solution, the episode concluded.

Bell is such an integral part of the series, but we've already witnessed two huge exits in the last year, so anything can happen.

The cast of the hit drama includes Matt Czuchry as Dr. Conrad Hawkins, Manish Dayal as Dr. Devon Pravesh, Bruce Greenwood as Dr. Randolph Bell, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Dr. AJ Austin, Jane Leeves as Dr. Kit Voss, Morris Chestnut as Dr. Barrett Cain, Jessica Lucas as Billie Sutton, and Anuja Joshi as Dr. Leela Devi.

The Resident will lead into the time-period debut of the new primetime soap Monarch, which will be coming off a football-fueled premiere a few days earlier.

FOX has switched things up in 2022 so far, with 9-1-1: Lone Star leading into the series debut of The Cleaning Lady on Monday.

The latter managed to more than double the performance of The Big Leap in the slot.

All eyes will be on Monarch to see how it holds up on Tuesdays out of The Resident.

The Resident Quotes

Marshall: It's not often that our worlds collide, but about this, I know a thing or two. Doing good isn't black and white, and the shades of gray are unsettling.
Conrad: Oh, I know. I deal with that every day. I don't want to lose myself.
Marshall: Never lose sight of your ideals because once that happens, the steps aren't many to the dark side. Trust me I know.

Conrad: You requested a top surgeon right? Dr. Austin is our finest.
AJ: Dr. Hawkins is too kind yet remarkably accurate.
