CBS Cancels ‘Code Black’ After 3 Seasons
‘Code Black‘ has flatlined. CBS has cancelled the medical drama after 3 Seasons it has been announced this morning.
The series showrunner, Michael Seitzman, made the announcement on Twitter saying:
Dear #CodeBlack fans, the sad news came today that we were cancelled. It’s been a true joy to make this show and watch your response every week. Thank you for all of your passion. Truly, our best episodes have yet to air. We hope you’ll watch and enjoy them. We made them for you.

He does slightly soften the blow in his following tweets adding “This season finale was written to be a series finale,” and “We always suspected this would be the last season. We wrote it to end that way,” so at least fans should have some sort of reasonable ending and not be left with a cliffhanger.
‘Code Black’ was a medical drama based on Ryan McGarry’s 2014 documentary of the same name, and sees the staff of Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center deal with a broken medical system whilst still trying to protect their ideals and most importantly, their patients.
The series went through numerous cast changes throughout it’s run. The 1st season starred Bonnie Somerville and Raza Jaffrey, but they were let go and replaced with Rob Lowe to star opposite Marcia Gay Harden in Season 2. Season 3 sees the introduction of ‘Falling Skies’ star Moon Bloodgood and the exit of Melanie Chandra, who played Dr Malaya Pineda.
The 3rd, and now final, season of ‘Code Black‘ comes to W in the UK on Tuesday, 29th May 2018 at 9:00 pm
