Is Red Band Society close to flat-lining?
The acclaimed Fox medical drama about a group of teenagers living together in the pediatric ward of a hospital will cease production on its first season after Episode 13, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The show's fall finale is set for Dec. 3, but it's unclear when and where the remaining three new episodes will air.
Although Fox has opted not to order additional episodes of Red Band Society at this time, a second season is still a possibility. Although it opened to modest numbers (4.1 million viewers and a 1.3 in the adults 18-49 demo rating), the series' ratings have since stabilized. Questions about Red Band Society's future first emerged when Fox announced its midseason schedule, including the return of American Idol, The Following and Glee, but the Steven Spielberg-executive produced series was nowhere to be seen.
This is the latest freshman show to be allowed to complete its original 13-episode order despite ratings struggles, following NBC's Bad Judge and A to Z, which are set to end, and Constantine, which may still be picked up for Season 2.
