No Season 4 for the medical drama.
May 24, 2018
It looks like the current season of Code Black will be its last, as CBS has opted not to bring the medical drama back for Season 4. Word came from showrunner Michael Seitzman, who broke the sad news to his Twitter followers overnight.
The decision to cancel the series comes four episodes into the current third season, which premiered in April as a mid-season entry. The show was previously on the network's regular fall schedule for its first two seasons, but never really found a sizeable audience. Both of its past renewals came as last-minute decisions, but it looks like the network already knows what it wants to do this time around.
Inspired by an award-winning documentary, Code Black takes place in the busiest emergency room in the country. The term refers to when there are more patients than personnel or resources to treat them all, which occurs an alarming 300 days a year. The outstanding staff of this notoriously overcrowded and understaffed ER work to protect their patients and their ideals by confronting a challenged system that pushes them to their limits.

Here you go again CBS. What a great show and you feel the need to cancel it. Some sites have said it was because of the cost per episode. If you would get rid of all the employees that are now terminated for sex scandals and stop having to pay all these lawsuits maybe you could run a better company.

What in the world was some faceless CBS exec thinking? It appears that only the 30-40 age group demographic is appealing to the ad agencies, and the mature audiences don't matter. It is all about the holy dollar and selling unwanted product to people that don't really need them. Commercial TV is a business and I understand that, but how about caring for the audiences of all ages as well?

I can't believe CBS cancelled this show. This is one of the best shows that has been on television, with a great cast They can do so much more with the series. So much better than watching reality shows. The only good thing is that they ended it well and didn't leave us hanging.

I cannot believe CBS is cancelling this show as this is one of the best on TV. My wife and I have worked in the medical field for over 30 years and this show portrays the medical arena better than any others shows I have watched. Add in the social and political aspects and it is first rate. I understand the ratings game, but I wonder if CBS places the show in a different time slot, it would do better. I personally record the series because I rarely stay up to watch anything that late during the week.
I was also a big fan of JAG and CBS managed to kill it off and allow the spinoffs (NCIS and all of its locations!) to last forever. Code Black is new and refreshing and I certainly hope that CBS reconsiders or another network steals the show and brings it back to TV!

I'm very upset that CBS canceled this show. I truly do not understand. I thought the story line and actors were all amazing. You are making a mistake with this cancellation.
