The Chicago Med season 6 episode 12 air date has been confirmed, so when is the next episode on? How many episodes are there in total?

Staying in the loop with your TV shows is always important and it’s helpful to know how long series’ remain on a break.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, delays in production and release schedules have arguably been more apparent than ever and Chicago Med hasn’t been left unaffected.

Created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead, the American medical drama is the third installment of Wolf’s Chicago franchise and premiered back in 2015 on NBC.

Since then, audiences have flocked to check in on their favourite characters of the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. Season 6 welcomed fans back into the fold in November 2020 and there have been a number of breaks in the schedule since.

So, when is the Chicago Med season 6 episode 12 air date?

Chicago Med season 6 episode 12 air date

  • Episode 12 of Chicago Med season 6 is set to air at 8 pm on Wednesday, April 21st 2021.

So, audiences will simply have to wait two weeks rather than one to check in with the crew.

The episode is titled ‘Some Things Are Worth the Risk’ and will follow on from the events of episode 11, ‘Letting Go Only to Come Together’. A synopsis has already teased what fans can expect:

“Dean and Ethan respond to a scene that brings back some bad memories. When Carol’s condition worsens, Natalie is willing to do whatever it takes to get her mom feeling better.”

The series stars Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Torrey DeVitto, Rachel DiPillo, Colin Donnell, Brian Tee, S. Epatha Merkerson, Oliver Platt, Marlyne Barrett and more. Now, let’s look ahead…

Chicago Med season 6: How many episodes?

It’s uncertain how many episodes will be included in Chicago Med season 6 just yet.

Besides season 1 – which was made up of 18 episodes – all seasons of the series have been made up of 20-23 episodes. Taking this into consideration, it’s unlikely that season 6 will break the pattern, so fans can expect more episodes to come after ‘Some Things Are Worth the Risk’.

Andrew Schneider on Chicago Med season 6

In conversation with One Chicago Center, executive producer Andrew Scheider opened up about how COVID-19 affected the scriptwriting process on season 6:

“It was something that we had to incorporate, being a contemporary medical show. One of the big challenges was trying to divine the state the country might be in, because of course there’s a lag time between when we develop a script and when [an episode] airs.”

He added: “When we started this process of development back in May, we didn’t know whether the country would still be in trouble, what the issues would be…”

Chicago Med returns on Wednesday, April 21st 2021.
