Why Did Trevor Leave The Resident?

Miles Fowler left the show after the conclusion of his character Trevor Daniels’ arc. According to reports, the actor signed only a one-year deal while joining the show, indicating that Fowler was seemingly never considered a long-term cast member. Thus, the actor left the show after the completion of Trevor’s one-season arc. Trevor’s realization that he was born after his mother Billie was raped unsettles him. He realizes that he shouldn’t be with Billie at Chastain anymore, which leads him to resign from the hospital. In the sixteenth episode of the fifth season, he reveals to his mother that his ambition isn’t to be a doctor.

Trevor has always been interested in drug chemistry. Still, he chooses to become a doctor so that he can reunite with his mother Billie. Eventually, Trevor succeeds in working and spending his time with her. When he realizes that Billie loves him regardless of what profession he chooses, he puts an end to his career as a doctor and joins the R&D department of a biotech startup. Since Trevor leaves Chastain, the main setting of the show, it is understandable that Fowler had to leave when Trevor leaves the hospital.

The character Trevor was seemingly conceived to focus on the drama that arises when he reunites with Billie. When the Chief of Surgery reaffirms her love for him, the aforementioned drama gets concluded as well. Concluding Trevor’s arc might have been also necessary for the show to focus on Billie’s companionship with Conrad Hawkins. After Fowler’s exit, Andrew McCarthy joined the show as Dr. Ian Sullivan apparently to fill the gap left by the completion of Trevor’s arc.
