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. However, one could speculate that the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic may have something to do the radio silence about another season. 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 dedicate 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, Jackson’s Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, spoke about the very real problem that emergency room personnel are currently facing. “It’s a tough situation,” She added.
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.
