UPDATE: Wednesday, June 29 at 2:30 p.m. ETThe doctor is in with some very good news: The premiere date of Chicago Med Season 8 is very, very soon. And after that cliffhanger of a Season 7 finale—um, the fire that has Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and Dr. Dylan Scott (Guy Lockard) trapped!—we need answers sooner rather than later. Thankfully, they’re coming. 

When does Chicago Med Season 8 premiere?

Chicago Med is the third installment of the One Chicago franchise and tracks the lives of doctors and nurses working in the E.R. of Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. Often intermingling with characters from Chicago P.D. and Fire, you never know which familiar face might walk into the emergency room. Life is rarely boring for Chicago physicians, and One Chicago fans have become enamored with the personal lives of the Chicago Med doctors and residents. 

Boasting powerhouse performances from supervising attending physician Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) and nurse Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett), the characters of the NBC series have fans hooked. Life is never predictable for the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center staff, with every episode bringing a unique set of challenges for the characters. For a city that's never short of emergencies, Chicago Med fans are eager for the series to return to NBC this fall.

Fortunately for One Chicago fans, NBC Insider has just what the doctor ordered: Chicago Med will return for Season 8 in fall 2022. Here's what you need to know:
