Why is Shaunette Renée Wilson leaving The Resident as Mina Okafor?

“I am appreciative of them for allowing me to embody as beautiful of a soul as Dr Mina Okafor.

“I would also like to thank the studio, network, cast, crew and, most of all, the wonderfully dedicated fans of The Resident for their support over the last four seasons.”

With this in mind, it seems it was solely Wilson’s decision to leave the show and fans will be pleased to hear she left on her own terms.

Having been a huge part of the weekly drama for so long, Wilson is most likely hoping to explore new avenues in the world of acting.

Regarding how her character leaves the series, Mina will return to Nigeria to be with her family.
