Chicago Med: Dominic Rains Not Returning as Crockett for Season 10

The doctor is out: Dominic Rains will not be returning to Chicago Med for its upcoming tenth season, TVLine has confirmed. Rains joined the Dick Wolf drama in Season 5, playing trauma surgeon Dr. Crockett Marcel.

While fans may not be happy to see Rains go, a potential exit was foreshadowed in the Season 9 finale, which aired on May 22. In the dramatic episode, Crockett was so rocked by the news that his former patient died and that the little boy’s dad committed suicide that he bailed on a surgery. The situation brought up old feelings of helplessness and grief for Crockett, who tearfully confessed to Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) that he knew how the dad felt because he, too, lost a child. He added that he never took the time to grieve his daughter’s death, which made many viewers wonder whether he needed to take some time to do just that.

And Rains isn’t the only longtime member of the Chicago Med family saying goodbye. Diane Frolov and Andy Schneider, who helmed the medical drama since its 2015 debut, stepped down from their post in early April. Allen MacDonald (Prime Video’s Harlan Coben’s Shelter) has been tapped to assume showrunner duties at Med, starting with Season 10.

TVLine’s sister site Deadline was the first to report Rains’ exit. Will you miss seeing Dr. Marcel around the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center? Drop a comment with your feelings about Crockett’s departure below.
