It was today revealed that NBC drama ‘The Night Shift’ will run for a season 4.
The popular medical drama most recently aired its season 3 season this summer upon high demand, and it is set to return with its fourth season sometime in 2017. While no premiere date has been set, it will likely return for the summer season.
Never seen it? – A night-shift doctor at San Antonio Memorial, T.C. Callahan struggles to find the balance between saving lives and the hard reality of running a hospital. Joining him as he faces the sometimes dangerous task of running the emergency room are his best friend — who often shoulders the unenviable job of keeping T.C. out of trouble — Topher; former Army medic, Drew; lead physician — and T.C.’s ex-girlfriend — Jordan; and surgical resident, Paul. The rigors of the job may expose some personal weaknesses, but their shared drive to save their patients bonds them together in a tight-knit group.
In its previous season, its viewing numbers were fantastic, averaging 5 Million viewers weekly. It also scores a 7.4 rating on IMDB and 7.3 rating on TV.com which are above average scores.
“Week after week, The Night Shift tells incredibly engaging and emotional stories that draw us into a unique world,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “We are delighted to renew the show for an exciting fourth season and look forward to continue working with such a great cast and executive producing team.”
