Despite there being originally a new episode scheduled to air on the network tonight, it looks instead like The Code is now sitting Memorial Day out. This seems to be appropriate, in observance of all of those men and women in uniform we have lost. The series will return on June 3 with a new episode entitled “Lioness,” one that you can get a little bit more in the way of insight on below:
“Lioness” – Abe and Harper travel to Afghanistan to investigate when an Afghan commander is killed on a U.S. base. When a Marine is accused of the crime, Trey and Maya join their colleagues to defend him in an on-base hearing. Also, Col. Turnbull and her husband, Asa (Cotter Smith), disagree about how to handle their son Adam’s (Derek Klena) physical therapy, on THE CODE, Monday, June 3 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Hopefully, this does at least give you a sense as to the specific case that some of these characters are going to be looking at — it’s complicated much in the same way that many others have been, at least in terms of how it’s going to serve as a test.
Beyond just the story of this episode, though, there is another question that many fans may be asking at present: Where’s word on a season 2 renewal? While the vast majority of major network shows have either been given another season or canceled, there’s still no official word on this one. we’re left to wonder instead precisely what the future could hold, and it may be a few more weeks still until something gets determined one way or another.
If you were to just look at the ratings for The Code in primetime, it doesn’t bode too well for its future — this is a show averaging just a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Yet, it is bringing in a solid five million viewers an episode, plus whatever it gets in terms of DVR viewership. While we don’t foresee it being a series that will be on CBS’ fall schedule anytime soon (fittingly, it’s not on there), don’t rule it out entirely as another late spring/summer addition to the lineup. We’re not overly optimistic, but we have seen CBS give a green light before to some other series that aren’t necessarily bringing in some enormous numbers. Just be patient and continue to keep watching; that’s going to be the #1 way to help ensure that The Code sticks around.
