Ahead of its upfront presentation next week, CBS has given a third-season renewal to Code Black. Considered to an 'on-the-bubble' show since early in its run, the medical drama has again received a last-minute pickup for 2017-2018 despite drawing only modest ratings.
Bucking this year's trend of networks renewing primarily in-house productions, Code Black is being brought back even though CBS co-produces the series with ABC Studios. Keeping the show around does give CBS at least one medical drama in its lineup for next season.
