Due to the coronavirus pandemic, which forced more than 100 shows to suspend production, FBI will wrap Season 2 on Tuesday, March 31. As such, it likely left three episodes on the proverbial table.
The Resident in turn will end Season 3 on Tuesday, April 7, with its 20th episode. The medical drama thus fell three episodes shy of completing its 23-episode order. (A repeat is scheduled to air on March 31.)
In addition to a finale promo, Fox released the following synopsis for what is now a makeshift season ender:
“Just when Derek’s condition seems to be improving, a severe complication arises, causing Kit to fear that he may be the latest victim of Cain’s cover-up. When Cain’s former girlfriend is admitted to the hospital for surgery, the doctors finally get a glimpse into his personal life. Meanwhile, Conrad fills in Marshall on the emergency situation facing the hospital and Mina and The Raptor work on saving the heart of a salsa dancer.”
As previously reported, The Walking Dead will end its current season earlier than expected, on April 5, since post-production could not be completed before such facilities got shut down. The planned season finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.
Similarly, Supernatural‘s 15th and final season is in limbo. Executive producer Andrew Dabb revealed on Monday that the March 23 episode — which was the 13th episode of a 20-episode order — would be the last fresh original to air “for a while,” also due to unmet post-production demands.
