The bubble medical drama, which ends its fourth season on Tuesday, was "really the first show to show problems in medicine and to really attack them and we took a lot of flack from doctors all across the country saying, 'Why are you doing this?' Doctors are heroes, et cetera, et cetera," says showrunner Andrew Chapman. "And we said, 'Yeah, doctors are heroes. Absolutely. But there are issues out there and you have to deal with these issues. Over the course of our now four seasons to run into people who are in the healthcare world, to have them come to me and go, 'Oh, you work on The Resident? I love that show. It's so true that this is a problem and that we deal with that problem all the time.' That's incredibly fulfilling to me."
