Dr. Abrams has been on Chicago Med since the first season, appearing on episodes during each of the five years the show has been on NBC. Actor Brennan Brown has been playing him for that run.
When Chicago Med returned from its winter hiatus on Wednesday night, Dr. Sam Abrams wasn’t in any of the scenes. That’s not an oddity, as the character is a specialist that doesn’t deal with every patient.
Still, the character ended up being one of the most searched members of the Chicago Med cast, especially after what took place in the sneak peek for the next new episode.
For readers who want to head into Season 5, Episode 11 of Chicago Med with a clean slate, this is where you should go read some of the other great content on Monsters & Critics.
