When Will 'Chicago Med' Be Back on TV? The Reason for Its Delay Revealed

This week "Chicago Med" fans were disappointed as a new episode of the One Chicago franchise did not air and will only return after a three-week delay.


Fans of "Chicago Med" were again disappointed as the show's newest episode of season 7 did not air this week. The delay came after One Chicago's three shows went on a hiatus over the holidays.

This season the fictional staff of the Gaffney Chicago Medical center has dealt with new patients, investigating their fellow doctors, interoffice politics, and drug addiction.

They have also struggled with the

and consequences of Dr. Dean Archer (Steven Webber) becoming the department's interim chief after Archer's patient shot Chief Resident Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee), and he had to go on medical leave.

Dr. Archer is now a regular, recurring character on the show. However, many fans believe the storyline went too far as many do not enjoy his character. One Reddit user reacted to a thread about the development and said:


"I literally let out a loud ughh when I read this. I can't stand his character and the writing for him so far. They really could have made smarter choices."


Dr. Choi first brought Dr. Archer to the Gaffney Medical team in season six. The character quickly made himself known, but negatively as he caused friction between his colleagues.

Unfortunately, "Chicago Med" audiences did not get to check in with the Gaffney Hospital staff this week to see what patients and other complications they are dealing with next.


The last episode, "Change Is a Tough Pill to Swallow," aired on January 19, 2022. The episode featured an elderly patient, a situation involving a patient needing a kidney transplant, and a patient struggling with an ADHD misdiagnosis.

Last week's episode was repeated this week, leaving fans wondering when episode six will air. Fortunately, NBC released the return date of "Chicago Med." It is scheduled to air on February 23, 2022, three weeks after the latest episode.


"Chicago Med" was not the only TV show faced with delays and scheduling changes this month. "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D," and other NBC shows such as "S.W.A.T." were all delayed.

The reason for the delay is the Winter Olympics. The Olympics are scheduled to start on February 4 and end on February 22. Therefore the network will be broadcasting the Team USA events during the One Chicago trio's usual Wednesday night time slot.

Although it is not clear why the show based in the Windy City went on hiatus before the Olympics started, it might be because the production experiences delays due to positive COVID-19 cases onset.

So "Chicago Med" fans will have to wait a bit longer to see the show's next installment. The series stars Dominic Rains, Nick Gehlfuss, Torrey Devitto, and Marlynee Barret.
