It’s that time of year again when Michael Seitzman and the cast of Code Black will return to work and begin filming the popular CBS medical drama.
Showrunner Michael Seitzman tweeted a picture of the front cover of season 3 episode 1 script titled, “Third Year”. The caption to go along with the photo read “two weeks til cameras roll”.
Fans of the show should start to get excited because potential spoilers for the third season could be popping up more with the show close to filming, but for now fans can get a few hints from Seitzman’s tweet.
For starters filming will commence in two weeks, meaning the stars and the crew members will report back to the studio and get a chance to read up on what will go down during the first few episodes. So does the title refer to the original residents, such as Dr. Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth), Dr. Angus Leighton (Harry Ford), and Dr. Malaya Pineda (Melanie Chandra)? This seems like the most probable scenario since it will be their third year at Angels Memorial.
From another perspective, could the episode title gives fans the sense that we will welcome some new faces? The “Third Year” could also represent a new beginning, a new year. At the end of the second season fans saw, (for a brief moment) Jessie (Luis Guzmán) welcoming the new residents to Angels Memorial. If this were the case it would certainly fit the pattern the show has used in the opening episodes of seasons one and two.
While there is no evidence to say there will be new cast members, it would be interesting to bring some in. It could make for some good conflict for the original cast. But if not, then fans should not be disappointed, especially after some of the changes (that were previously reported), take place.
On a final note, will someone die again early in the season? If so, that would seem to fit another pattern from the first two seasons. If fans will remember Dr. Gina Perello (Christina Vidal) was murdered in season one by Mayala’s stalker and Dr. Charlotte Piel (Nafessa Williams) was shot and killed in the waiting room while treating patients in season two. It’s definitely an interesting concept to have, especially since it adds so much suspense.
