Medical drama “Code Black” has been renewed for Season 3 at CBSVariety has learned.

The series takes place in the fictional Angels Memorial Hospital, where the high number often outnumbered the limited resources available to doctors and patients, creating a situation known in some hospitals as a “code black.”

It stars Marcia Gay Harden, Boris Kodjoe Melanie Chandra, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Jillian Murray, William Allen Young, Luis Guzmán, and Rob Lowe. Michael Seitzman, David Marshall Grant, Ryan McGarry, David Von Ancken, Marti Noxon and Linda Goldstein Knowlton serve as executive producers. ABC Television Studios produced in association with CBS Television Studios.

The series has enjoyed decent ratings, but nevertheless ranked as one of CBS’ lowest-rated scripted series this season. Season 2 averaged a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 6 million viewers per episode.

CBS previously renewed 18 of their series. The returning shows renewed to date include comedies such as “Big Bang Theory” (for two seasons), “Mom,” and “Life in Pieces”; dramas including “Blue Bloods” and “Madam Secretary”; newsmagazines “48 Hours” and “60 Minutes”; and reality series “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.” “Big Brother” was previously renewed for two more seasons back in August.

    My only “must see” network show. Thought it was a goner. Happily surprised.

    Unless they’ve rewritten this show, I thought it was boring and a bit slow. If they’re going to keep it, it needs some changes.

  7. apres says:

    I agree with chung2music but it’s still slow and needs something to bring it to the attention of the masses.

  8. chung2music says:

    Amazing news. The show is a quality show. The final moment of season 2 was so very poignant and human. Glad that CBS is choosing quality over quantity. Marcia Gay Harden on this show shows why she’s an incredible actress, but to elevate it more she’s surrounded by a very well rounded cast who give off a sense of affability. The medical part of the show is also riveting. Cheers to this news.
