‘Code Black’ Canceled After Three Seasons at CBS

CBS has pulled the plug on medical drama “Code Black” after three seasons.

Series creator and showrunner Michael Seitzman first broke the news on Twitter.

“Dear #CodeBlack fans, the sad news came today that we were cancelled,” he wrote. “It’s been a true joy to make this show and watch your response every week. Thank you for all of your passion. Truly, our best episodes have yet to air. We hope you’ll watch and enjoy them. We made them for you.”

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, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Emily Tyra, William Allen Young, Noah Gray-Cabey, Emily Alyn Lind, Moon Bloodgood, Luis Guzmán, and Rob Lowe. Michael Seitzman, David Marshall Grant, Rob Bowman, Marti Noxon, Linda Goldstein Knowlton, Ryan McGarry and Mike Weiss serve as executive producers. ABC Television Studios produced in association with CBS Television Studios.

The series was never a ratings breakout on CBS, with the first season averaging a solid 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.1 million viewers and Season 2 dropping to a 1.0 and 6 million in Live+Same Day. Season 3 was averaging a 0.7 and 5.4 million viewers  going into this week’s episode on Wednesday night.
