This show based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, a medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation, Los Angeles County Hospital/USC Medical Center in Boyle Heights, CA, where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all – creating a condition known as "Code Black."
The doctors work with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to find an antidote to the deadly viral outbreak at Angels Memorial. Also, Leanne makes a life-changing decision, and Jesse welcomes a new batch of residents.
CBS has topped up Season 2 of Code Black, ordering three additional episodes of the medical drama. The sophomore series has been perennially on-the-bubble since its premiere in 2015, but has continued to survive despite lackluster ratings.
Today's top up of three extra episodes gives Code Black a total of 16 for Season 2, which is two short of its freshman total. As in Season 1, new episodes air Wednesday nights at 10:00pm.
