It was also announced that Amy Holden Jones would produce the series and co-write the pilot episode along with Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi. The series, however, was never produced and on January 20, 2017, it was reported that Fox purchased the series from Showtime and ordered a pilot episode under the name The Resident. On May 10, 2017, the series received a season order of 14 episodes. The series premiered on January 21, 2018. Phillip Noyce, an executive producer for the series, directed the first two episodes of the season after signing a multi-year deal with 20th Century Fox Television. The first season officially concluded on May 14, 2018.
On May 7, 2018, Fox renewed the series for a 13-episode second season and pre-production began on June 8, 2018. The second season premiered on September 24, 2018. On October 10, 2018, it was reported that Fox had ordered an additional nine episodes for the second season, bringing the total episode count to 22.

On March 25, 2019, Fox renewed the series for a third season, which premiered on September 24, 2019. The season was originally planned to have 23 episodes, but COVID-related production shutdowns resulted in three episodes remaining unfilmed.

On April 21, 2021, it was announced that original cast member Shaunette Renée Wilson would be written out of the series towards the end of the fourth season, after her deciding to exit the series to explore new ventures.
