Nora Clayton in 2x15 Dreamcatcher
It is my understanding that The Night Shift is planned as a midseason replacement, but no concrete announcement has been made as of yet. It could be either winter or spring.
But apparently, and I didn’t realize this either, the show was from the beginning only planned to have 8 episodes. However, NBC has already ordered three additional scripts - bringing the total episode number to 11 [source]
