How about this for some great news related to Code Black? During this morning’s TCA panel in California, CBS made it clear that there’s a chance that the series could be coming back after all. There are no guarantees of course, but the network is seemingly a little more open to the idea of doing more than they certainly seemed when they canceled the show earlier this spring.
Speaking per critics, here is what the network’s programming head Kelly Kahl (via TVLine) had to say on the subject:
“It’s doing incredibly well, it’s a well-done show. We’d like to figure out a way to maybe make it work … We’re going to take a look.”
What’s causing the sudden change of heart? Well, we think that much of it has to do with the ratings being better over the summer than perhaps CBS expected, especially with the quality staying so high. It routinely was the most-watched show on Wednesday nights and it did that without a ton of promotion. We already know that creator Michael Seitzman has said that he has an idea for a fourth season, in the event the series does manage to get picked up.
If CBS is going to save the show, though, they may need to act quickly — the longer that they wait, the more likely it is that many of the cast members are going to be scooped up elsewhere. We know that Rob Lowe is already on board to host a new game show at Fox, but that is one of those things that can probably be filmed in a super-short period of time and may not have a huge impact on this show.
Obviously, we’ll keep watch on the subject of Code Black and the future over the coming weeks.
