Code Black Season 2: Who Won't Be Back?

at . Comments

Code Black is returning to CBS this fall for Season 2, but Bonnie Somerville and Raza Jaffrey won't be part of the sophomore run. 

Somerville played Christa, while Jaffrey portrayed Neal.

It does seem a bit odd that both of these actors are departing the show. 

Fans really warmed to them over the course of Code Black Season 1

It makes us wonder what the powers that be have in mind for what they want the show to be like when it returns. 

There's no denying that the ratings for the show were somewhat soft. 

It averaged 7.1 million viewers and just a 1.3 rating among people 18-49. 

That said, the show got some sizable bumps with other outlets factored in. 

Code Black isn't afraid to change things up with the cast. 

Just last year before the show even premiered, Maggie Grace departed the lead role and Marcia Gay Harden got bumped up be the female lead. 

Considering the way the first season concluded, it seem like we're not going to get much resolution for these characters.

“Bonnie Somerville and Raza Jaffrey are beloved by the audience, as well as the rest of the cast and crew,” series creator Michael Seitzman told Deadline.

“Their departure is painful for us, is no reflection on the extraordinary work they both did on the show.”

In other Code Black news, Boris Kodjoe and Jillian Murray have both been upped to series regulars.

Kodjoe's character didn't go down well with fans when he first debuted at mid-season, but viewers no doubt warmed to him as the season progressed. 

What do you think of this shake up for the medical drama?

Are you sad by the news?
