Per Premiere Date News, there is still no word yet as to when, or even if, a Season 16 of “Untold Stories of the ER” is happening. The radio silence regarding a new season could be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many coronavirus patients are filling up emergency rooms across the country, so it is possible that ER physicians don’t have the spare time to devote to the program right now.
As reported by CNN, many emergency rooms are experiencing a “backlog” due to surging case numbers. “We may be using an ER room as an ICU, which then delays the person who comes to the emergency room with a broken arm, because you have to wait to get into a room to be seen,” Dr. Maria Rappai from Jackson’s Mississippi Baptist Medical Center spoke out about the common problem emergency room workers are experiencing. “It’s a tough situation,” She said more.
One thing is certain: The show’s fans want it back! “I love the shows, i miss them,” One user wrote zealously in the comments section of Premiere Date News.
