Chicago Med fans will be happy to know that Guy Lockard is back at work for Season 8. The actor, who plays Dr. Dylan Scott, posted a photo of himself to Instagram on July 20 wearing the iconic red Chicago Medical Center scrubs.

How to Watch

Watch Chicago Med on NBC and Peacock.

Viewers love Lockard's thoughtful depiction of the warm-hearted doctor specializing in pediatrics. Lockard recently spoke to Host Yasheenya Jackson on her podcast Cherish, Live, and Dream about how he landed his role on Chicago Med. Interestingly, he was first cast as a guest role on another show in the One Chicago lineup. 

"So, the full story is that right before the pandemic in February 2020, I did an episode of Chicago Fire, and we did that episode and it played over well," he said during the interview. 

Lockard must have made a fantastic impression on the cast and crew of Chicago Fire, because when he sent in his Audition tape for Chicago Med, they contacted him immediately. 

"Fast-forward to July of last year, I did an Audition for Dylan Scott," he explained. "And one of the directors of the Chicago Fire episode got hired to be the executive producer of Chicago Med, and as soon as my tape came in, she pulled it. My lawyer negotiated the contract, and I was in Chicago within a week."

Between his sparkling charisma, easy-going personality, and wonderful acting chops, it's no surprise Lockard nailed it. We can't wait to see how his character develops during the upcoming season. 

Chicago Med Season 8 will premiere Wednesday, September 21 at 8/7c on NBC. Catch up now on Peacock and on NBC.
