CBS has topped up the first season of Code Black, ordering five additional episodes of the medical drama. While the series is off to a relatively slow start through its first eight weeks, the top-up gives it a little more time to improve its numbers.

The extra episodes give Code Black a total of 18 for Season 1, just short of the typical 22 that comprise a full season. New episodes air Wednesday nights at 10:00pm.
