Chicago Med Season 9: Is it premiering in June 2023?
We are aware of how much the fans have been awaiting its return, but we have some unfortunate news to share with you! We hate to break this to our readers, but the new episodes will not return in June 2023, as NBC recently started releasing their summer lineup, in which Chicago Med Season 9 was not mentioned, which is a bit disappointing. But they should consider the fact that the last season ended just a few days ago, which makes it way too early for it to make a comeback.
Hence, there is no way that the new season will return this month, as the renewal was announced back in April 2022, along with its sister shows Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, which will air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST, followed by Fire at 9 p.m. EST and P.D. at 10 p.m. EST. Even though this is a bit of a disheartening update, we can do some other updates that will lighten up your mood!
Firstly, we can tell that you’re on high alert right now since NBC confirmed the series renewal on April 2023. So, we would like to clear up the fact that there is no doubt that the beloved medical drama will be making its official return sometime later this year, which is assumed to be a part of the 2023–2024 broadcast season lineup, with the creators aiming for the show’s return on a 2023 fall release, with September being the likely release window just like the prior season.
We’ll just have to wait and see which direction the writers will take going forward, as the ongoing writer’s strike can also be a major factor in shifting the release date if the issue isn’t resolved soon.

Chicago Med Season 9: What to expect in the new season?
Though it is far too early to predict future storylines, the new season with 22-episode order is likely to maintain the show’s theme and character arcs, which focus on the emergency department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center and on its doctors and nurses as they work to save patients’ lives. The next season is also expected to pick up from the 8th season’s finale, “Does One Door Close and Another One Open?”
In the episode, viewers got to know that, “Shocking information threatens Jack Dayton’s surgery and the future of OR 2.0; Archer goes rogue to save a patient in need; Maggie questions her future at Med.”
“I’m pleased to continue my four-decade relationship with Universal Television and NBC,” Wolf said in a statement. “All six shows being picked up again is the ultimate accolade to our incredible casts, producers, and writers. I’d also like to thank our loyal fans who have kept our NBC shows on the air for what will be a cumulative 84 seasons.”
On the other hand, NBC Insider also highlighted that Chicago Med Season 9 will likely pick up the nail-biting ordeal where Chicago Med’s fearless boss Sharon Goodwin is fighting tooth and nail to prevent Jack Dayton (Sasha Roiz) from turning the hospital into a for-profit hospital. This is a possibility to be explored further; we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.
Chicago Med Season 9: Who will return?
The main cast members from the last season who are speculated to return are as follows Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi, Dominic Rains as Dr. Crockett Marcel, Marlyne Barrett as Maggie Campbell, Guy Lockard as Dr. Dylan Scott, Jessy Schram as Dr. Hannah Asher, S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Steven Weber as Dr. Dean Archer, and Asjha Cooper as Dr. Vanessa Taylor.
Moreover, the recurring cast includes Brennan Brown as Dr. Sam Abrams, Devin Kawaoka as Dr. Kai Tanaka-Reed, Conor Perkins as Dr. Zach Hudgins, Lilah Richcreek Estrada as Dr. Nellie Cuevas, T.V. Carpio as Dr. Grace Song, Sasha Roiz as Jack Dayton, Luigi Sottile as Sean Archer, Alet Taylor as Liliana Wapniarski, and Stan Shaw as Dr. George Thomas. Some new additions or removals in the cast can be announced, which will be revealed later if it ever happens.
“We understand the emotional connection our audience has with these characters and we can’t wait to bring more of their stories to the forefront next season,” Lisa Katz, the president of scripted programming at NBCUniversal and Streaming, said in a statement. “A huge thank you to Dick and his amazing team who are the masters of producing incredibly compelling television week after week.”
Dick Wolf, Diane Frolov, Andrew Schneider, Stephen Hootstein, Derek Haas, Arthur Forney, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, and Peter Jankowski are executive producers. “Chicago Med” is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment.
