‘Red Band Society’ spoilers: News on finale, penultimate episode

If you enjoy Fox’s “Red Band Society,” then we would assume that you have probably heard some of the tough news in regards to the show already: There is not going to be a season 2. Despite the best efforts of the studio to find it a new home, and with Fox even trying to consider a shift of the show to summer, nothing managed to work out. We understand why the fans will miss it: There was not another series quite like it, even if there are dozens of hospital dramas out there. It also happened to improve dramatically over the course of its run.

The final few episodes are going to be airing on Saturdays, and we thought before we got into this weekend, we would give you the details on the series’ final two installments, which are going to be airing come January 31. One thing that you should know about “We’ll Always Have Paris” and “Waiting for Superman” is that they will stay pretty true to the form of the series and its tone. This is not a series about guaranteed happiness; this is a children’s hospital, and death sometimes happens. Per the synopsis, at least one character will not make it to the end:

“The group copes with the loss of one of their own, which results in new hope for one of them. Love is in the air as Nurse Jackson and Dr. Naday take things to a new level, however Dash’s love interest could cost him his life. Shocking news leads to new hope and Emma and Kara start facing their family issues.”

The one thing that this synopsis makes very clear is that sometimes out of sadness can come light, and the series will try to explore this. Let’s just hope that with it marking the end of the road, we have some moments of pure power and poignancy.
