The upcoming third season will see Red Rock Mountain Medical being taken over Chastain Memorial Hospital and as the doctors are faced with the biggest corrupting influence of money in health care, with the courageous young physicians putting their futures and careers on the line to stop “profit over patients.”

Chestnut will portray Dr. Barrett Cain, an intimidating neurosurgeon who believes himself to be a superman physician and is hired by Red Rock Medical to turn around Chastain’s finances. He’s described as  “charming when he wants to be but utterly ruthless in his quest for money and power,” with his ability to exact swift revenge on any who oppose him putting the good doctors at Chastain in jeopardy.

Grier has signed on to play Lamar Broome, biological father to Dr. AJ Austin, who is described as “as a larger-than-life businessman with a prideful manner and substantial ego — not unlike the son he gave up for adoption 35 years ago. But after he’s diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, Lamar is desperate to reconnect with AJ, hoping to find a love and connection that he lacks with the children he raised.”

The Resident is a powerful medical drama focusing on the final years of a young doctor’s training that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospitals across the country. Starring Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife), Emily VanCamp (Revenge), Manish Dayal (Halt and Catch Fire), Moran Atias (24: Legacy), Merrin Dungey (Big Little Lies) and Shaunette Renée Wilson (Billions) with Melina Kanakaredes (CSI: NY, Providence) and Bruce Greenwood (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Mad Men), the series’ executive producers include Todd Harthan (Rosewood), Amy Holden Jones (Mystic PizzaIndecent Proposal), Rob Corn (Grey’s Anatomy), Antoine Fuqua (SouthpawTraining Day), David Boorstein (Level 26: Dark Revelations), Oly Obst (The MickGhosted) and Phillip Noyce (Patriot GamesThe Bone Collector), who also directed the pilot.
