Code Black Snags 5 More Episodes

Code Black Full Season

Code Black seems to be in stable condition.

CBS announced Friday that it has ordered five additional episodes of its freshman medical drama, bringing the Season 1 count to 18.

The extra installments are yet another vote of confidence from the network, which previously ordered six more scripts of Code Black in October.

The series — which centers on the chaotic goings-on at Angels Memorial Hospital — is averaging roughly 9 million viewers in Live+7 day data.

Thus far, CBS has handed full-season orders to rookie series Life in Pieces and Limitless. Happy to hear Code Black will also be around for a while? Hit the comments.
