Chicago Med, NBC's Dick Wolf-helmed medical drama, just celebrated it's 100th episode, a traditional landmark for TV shows which marks their viability for syndication.
To celebrate the joyful occasion, the cast and crew of the show gathered together to eat a cake which looked remarkably like a human cadaver.
It's a good day to be a ChiHard. 🎉 #ChicagoMed https://t.co/e9nqu21GE0— Chicago Med (@Chicago Med)1580244910.0

I wanna know which bakery made the cadaver cake for Chicago Med's 100 ep celebration. I never watched the show but I do like cake.— Vivian (@Vivian)1580343219.0
Cadaver cakes are going to be all the rage this year.

@tracyswartz It’s bit morbid for cake. I think they should have stuck with 100th episode cake 🎂. Congratulations to Chicago Med— laurel best (@laurel best)1580254802.0
Congrats to Chicago Med on hitting 100 episodes!
When they hopefully make it to 200, who knows what kind of freaky cake they'll end up celebrating with.
