Chicago Med Season 8: When will the new episode begin airing on NBC?

After a short hiatus, a brand new 16th episode is scheduled to release on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at the same time slot of 8 p.m. ET, followed by “Chicago Fire” Season 11 at 9 p.m. ET, and concluding with “Chicago P.D.” Season 10 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC and later on Paramount Plus. The network has not released the official title and synopsis for this upcoming episode to avoid spoilers beforehand, which makes it difficult to predict future plotlines.

Hence, we can expect that the new episode will expand on the events that transpired in the prior episode, “Those Times You Have to Cross the Line,” released on March 1, 2023, in which the viewers got to see that the hospital is in disarray when the janitors go on strike; Marcel treats a young girl injured on her family’s farm. Later, Charles and Cuevas’ schizophrenic patient returns to Med, and Archer encounters a patient with foreign material in her stomach.
