Spoiler alert: this story contains details from tonight’s episode of Fox The resident.
In Tuesday’s edition of The resident, original actor Shaunette Renée Wilson made her final appearance.
The actress took to Twitter before the episode aired to confirm her exit from the medical drama Fox. “After careful consideration, I approached the producers some time ago to ask them to quit the show and they agreed – and gave my character a wonderful send off,” the actress wrote. “I am grateful to them for allowing me to embody such a beautiful soul as Dr Mina Okafor. I would also like to thank the studio, the network, the cast, the crew, and most importantly, the wonderfully dedicated fans of The Resident for their support over the past four seasons.

The surgeon character played by Wilson, who works at Atlanta’s Chastain Park Memorial Hospital, is struck off the show as he leaves town to return to his native Nigeria.
Created by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, The resident is based on the book Inexplicable by Marty Makary. The series, which returned for its fourth season in January, examines the personal and professional challenges that a group of doctors face on a daily basis.
