Fox medical drama The Resident is going to be seeing some big changes in the remaining episodes of Season 5. On top of Emily VanCamp’s return in the upcoming finale, Brat Pack alum Andrew McCarthy has joined the cast.

Via Deadline, Andrew McCarthy will recur in the final three episodes of Season 5 of The Resident as Dr. Ian Sullivan. As a charming and narcissistic pediatric surgeon of considerable talent, he plays hero to his patients at the hospital, but his relationship with his daughter isn’t so straightforward. That’s not surprising, as The Resident‘s official Twitter account reveals that his daughter is none other than Cade.

If The Resident is renewed for a sixth season, McCarthy’s role reportedly has the potential of being upped to series regular. Since we still don’t know too much about Cade and her backstory, introducing her surgeon father could be the perfect way to air out any other secrets that she’s hiding.

Aside from that, McCarthy has also appeared on Gossip Girl, Good Girls, Lipstick Jungle, and 13 Reasons Why, among others. He has also directed episodes of shows including Good Girls, Condor, The Blacklist, Orange Is the New Black, and Lipstick Jungle.

There is no word yet on a Season 6 of The Resident, but news can come at any time now. Hopefully, there is another season since it seems like Dr. Ian Sullivan could make for some very interesting storylines, especially if Cade turns out to be the next love interest that Conrad pursues.

Fingers crossed that news on a sixth season comes out soon, but in the meantime, new episodes of The Resident air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX! Andrew McCarthy’s first episode airs on Tuesday, May 3. Check out CinemaBlend’s 2022 TV schedule to see what else to look forward to.

We’re going to see them really at odds for the first time in this season. It’ll be also tied into some surprises in Devon’s career. While the Carol-Raptor is obviously the emotional and dominant story in the episode, that rabies medical case is really cool and one I really love for the show. It’s also great because Conrad-Devon working together is the meat and potatoes of our show. But this wonderful success that they have opens up unexpected possibilities for Devon because it’s a very rare thing to cure rabies, to save someone who’s already been bitten. Based on the complications with Leela and suddenly he’s blowing up in a scientific way, there’s a lot of drama and potential pitfalls and we settle it in a really cool way in [the finale].

How significant is the danger to Conrad (Matt Czuchry) when it comes to what’s going on with the fake prescriptions? Or is that more something Cade (Kaley Ronayne) has to worry about?

Yes. In Episode 20, it comes to a head because they have an unexpected patient in the emergency room who holds the key for breaking open the story and the case and off that, there are some interesting and scary moments for both of them that will lead to a lot of the action and drama that we lay out from [Episode] 20 through 21, 22, and 23. It’s a pivotal — while 19 is a very pivotal episode, Episode 20 just really lights a burner under the stories as we go forward and finish the season.
