Emotion and bang are two words that can be aptly used to describe the series, Code Black.
The medical series created by Seitzman is set in the most hostile ER in the nation. Surrounded by limited resources and an overflow of patients, the doctors and nurses struggle to save lives each day. This situation hence earns the name Code Black.
Code Black has been raking in decent viewership stats since its season premiere in 2015.
So it is quite a dampener for fans to experience the thought of every season as a story ender for the show. The makers and writers of Code Black have claimed to have tailored each season to be an end in its own. The writers have always played with the sense of closure for the audience and also the production team. In Season three of Code Black, there has been a sense of looming cancellation and this appears in every story within the episodes. Each episode feels like an ending in some way.
So what’s in store for the fans?
Tension filled emergency moments will continue to be the core that makes Code Black the show that it is. Season three episode 9 set out a series of events that sent members of the cast into various directions and also thrust them together. From the production side, it seems that this is what they intended to do, to have the finale of every character begin with the ongoings in episode nine.
Brace yourself for what’s coming up.
Emotions will be stretched to new levels after ‘new teen on the block’ Ariel (Emily Alyn Lind) following the death of Max (Alex Lange), dishes out all manner of trouble for Leanne (Harden). Relationships continue to come under fire, from his heartbreaking moment with his father, Willis (Lowe) continues on in his relationship turmoil. His relationship with Rox (Moon Bloodgood) comes under continuous fire from the effects of Will’s family. Twists and turns await you at every moment with the relationship between Mario (Benjamin Hollingsworth) and Noa (Emily Tyra) not being spared either. After all, is said and done, the mom and daughter relationship story between Leanne and Ariel that stands out as the essence of the final episode.
Is this the end?
Are we seeing the all-star cast of Marcia Gay-Harden, Boris Kodjoe, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, William Allen Young, Luis Guzmán, Rob Lowe, and many others for the last time?
From what we saw in the last episodes, the tense medical drama, character bonding and emotionally gratifying endings, Code Black completely delivered on what you fans expected. However, when news broke out in early May that the show would not be heading into the fourth season, many fans couldn’t believe it.
You have to be optimistic however in the light of what has happened before. Your beloved show from ABC studios alongside CBS TV has more than once received a last-minute nod by the producers for a renewal.
