The cast and crew of Chicago Med are back on set at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios after a two week quarantine period.
The NBC series has had more than its share of delays from the Covid-19 virus. The onset of the coronavirus in March, halted production on Chicago Med before they were able to complete filming Season 5.
After just one week into production on Season 6, the first of Dick Wolf’s One Chicago series to begin filming for the new season hit the pause button again when a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.
We welcome back the Chicago Med cast and crew and officially welcome in Season 6 which is scheduled to premiere on November 11th.
Of course the obvious question is will Chicago Med address Covid-19 in the storyline this season?
One Chicago Center reports that producer, Dick Wolf has revealed a bit of what is coming in Season 6. “There will be a COVID unit in the hospital,” Wolf said, adding, “incoming patients will be tested by paramedics.” Without revealing who, Wolf said, “one character will be recovering from the disease.”
Wolf concluded that, “[COVID-19] will be part of daily life, and adjustments will be made.”
Chicago Med, which has been renewed for three additional seasons, will have a new cast member this season.
Tehmina Sunny is a new addition to Chicago Med (she can be seen on The CW series Pandora.) Sunny will have a recurring role during the show’s sixth season. Her character, Dr. Sabeena Virani will be supervising a clinical trial for a new medication, and she wants Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) to lead her clinical trial.
There have been no other cast shakeups reported on Chicago Med for this upcoming season.
Season 6 is scheduled to premiere on November 11th.
