NBC’s Nurses will be shifting to a new night – Tuesday – beginning on January 5, 2021. The medical drama will move into the 10pm ET/PT timeslot, immediately following new episodes of This Is Us, when it returns with season one episode three.
The cast of the first season is led by Tiera Skovbye (Riverdale) as Grace Knight, Natasha Calis (The Posession) as Ashley Collins, Jordan Johnson-Hinds (Blindspot) as Keon Colby, Sandy Sidhu (Home Before Dark) as Nazneen Khan, and Donald MacLean Jr. (Workin’ Moms) as Wolf Burke.
“Friday Night Legend” Plot: Grace encounters a patient whose actions force her to confront her own past trauma. Naz treats a high-maintenance opera singer who refuses to speak. Ashley has an unexpected run-in with Caro (guest star Alexandra Ordolis), and Keon must help a patient by tracking down the person who posted a viral video.
Nurses Description, Courtesy of NBC:
Set in Toronto, Nurses follows five young nurses working on the frontlines of a busy downtown hospital, dedicating their lives to helping others, while struggling to help themselves.
The ensemble cast includes Tiera Skovbye as Grace Knight, a young nurse looking for a fresh start until someone from her past turns up who could jeopardize her career; Natasha Calis as Ashley Collins, a wild and unapologetic adrenaline junky who lives for the fast pace of the hospital; Jordan Johnson-Hinds as Keon Colby, a former college football star who’s trying to prove he’s more than he was on the field; Sandy Sidhu as Nazneen Khan, the whip-smart daughter from a wealthy family in India who moved to Canada to reinvent herself and is now starting her first job ever; and Donald MacLean Jr. as Wolf Burke, soft-hearted and playful, who has a secret that may find him in over his head.
Along with the young team of nurses, the medical series also features a supporting cast played by Cathy White (Vikings) as Sinead O’Rourke, the head nurse and den mother of the new graduates; Ryan-James Hatanaka (Chicago P.D.) as Dr. Evan Wallace, the charming and attractive head of the ER who gets all the nurses’ attention – especially Grace’s; and Nicola Correia-Damude (Shadowhunters) as Dr. Vanessa Banks, the magnetic OBGYN with a cutting wit who never lets Keon forget a mistake.
