Red Band Society is an American teen medical comedy-drama television series on Fox for the 2014–15 American television season developed by Margaret Nagle. The series premiered on September 17, 2014.[1]

Based upon the Catalan drama series Polseres vermelles, the series is a dramedy focused on a group of teenagers living together as patients in a hospital's pediatric ward.[2] This is the first medical series to focus on hospital patients.

On November 26, 2014, it was confirmed the show would stop production after its original 13-episode order, and the show was pulled from the schedule after episode 10.[3]

On January 13, 2015, Fox announced that the series was canceled. The final three remaining episodes began airing on January 31. The last two remaining episodes aired as a two-hour finale on February 7, 2015.[4] Despite the series being canceled, fans are hoping that it will come back.

Development[edit]

A remake of Polseres vermelles, known in English as The Red Band Society, was originally developed for ABC in 2011 by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman, but the network chose to not move forward after first production stages.[5] In November 2013, Fox announced a new project to bring an adaptation of the Catalan television show in the United States held by Warm Springs and Boardwalk Empire writer Margaret Nagle.[5] On January 17, 2014, the project received a pilot order, plus additional backup scripts.[5]

On May 6, 2014, Fox picked up the pilot with a series order for the 2014–15 season.[2]

Kara finds out that the note Hunter left her is an official document stating that he will donate his heart to her in the event that he doesn't survive the surgery. Dr. Grace wants to appeal, thinking that Kara is undeserving, which (among other things) creates more tension between her and Dr. McAndrew. Emma finds out that her eating disorder might have caused permanent damage to her body and seeks comfort in Leo. Dash suggest that Leo cut ties with Emma so that she'll learn to take of herself first and foremost. He confesses about Kara and Emma kicks him out of her room. Meanwhile, Jordi attends a court hearing for his emancipation case, but is preoccupied about his drug-dealing situation and freezes up.

Kara is conflicted about whether or not to accept Hunter's heart, though Ashley tells her to not deny him his dying wish. Kara also shares a moment with Emma. Later, Kara sneaks into Hunter room to say that she loves him and he opens his eyes, but then the machines go off as his heart rate starts to plummet. Hunter is taken into the operating room, but ultimately cannot be saved. An inconsolable Ashley breaks down in Kara's arms. While preparing for Leo's discharge, Dr. McAndrew notices that the cancer has returned.

Teleplay by: Gina Fattore & Anna Fricke
February 7, 2015 (2015-02-07) 1.74[17]
As Kara is undergoing a heart transplant in real-life, she finds herself in the in-between world with Hunter.

They start off watching Kara's body in the operating room, but when Hunter asks about a happy time in Kara's life, they transport to Paris. After their time together, Kara doesn't want to leave Hunter, but he gives her a speech on the importance of life, after which she wakes up from surgery. A temporary patient named Mae shows up at the hospital, putting Dash on alert. They had started an online relationship on a cystic fibrosis forum, but he avoids her as their conditions don't allow them to be actually be together. Charlie is regaining his motor skills and Dr. Naday has him playing video games. He also tries to make progress with Nurse Jackson, who's mind is still preoccupied with what happened to Hunter. Meanwhile, Jordi's grandmother Alma has taken a disliking to Dr. McAndrew while he's still trying to get her to sign off on the surgery. However, Jordi later tells Dr. Andrew that he doesn't want it anymore, no longer believing that he can get better (due to the recent cases with Hunter and Leo). Alma then expresses her disappointment in Jordi losing his faith, which causes him to reconsider. At the end, Jordi decides to give Leo, who has been depressed and silent since he got the news about his cancer, a pep talk and is the one that's finally able to get through to him about continuing to fight their battles.
13 "Waiting for Superman" Jason Ensler Jeannine Renshaw February 7, 2015 (2015-02-07) 1.88[17]
Dash and Mae sneak off to be together, but are caught by Kenji and Brittany, who end up employing security guards to keep them apart. Emma's parents are visiting for a family therapy session, but Emma's continued resentment towards her mother dismissing her anorexia is in the way of the family making progress. After a failed trust fall exercise and an argument with Emma in the bathroom, Emma's mother almost leaves the hospital until Brittany has a talk with her in the elevator. It is only her mother returns that Emma is able to have a deep conversation with her. Kara is also having problems with her mother, who tells her that she still needs to learn to change for the better. Kara does take it to heart. Charlie is now able to move about in a wheelchair and Nurse Jackson thanks Dr. Naday for everything before he jets off to meet with his next patient. Meanwhile, Leo is pessimistic about beating cancer for a second time and it's hard for him to have been the one to hold everyone up, until Mae tells him that he doesn't always have to be invincible like Superman. After they escape their rooms to see each other, Dash reluctantly ends it with Mae for their own safety. The "red band society", including Charlie, reunite on the roof one last time and start singing "You Can't Always Get What You Want", which results in Charlie speaking for the first time since the coma. Later that night, he is discharged from Ocean Park. The series ends with Dr. McAndrew and Nurse Jackson acknowledging that the hardest part of their occupations is knowing that everyone eventually leaves, though they themselves will always stay.

Cancellation and Aftermath[edit]

After the airing of the show's pilot, it was said[by whom?] that the series would be canceled if its poor ratings continued. Due to this, Fox took the show off its Wednesday schedule after its tenth episode. Fans waged a strong social media campaign, while a change.org petition gained 36,000 signatures as of March 2015. Despite this, Fox on January 13, 2015, announced the series' cancellation after one season. Fox attempted to have the series run in the summer and lower the licensing fee, but ABC could not come to an agreement, thus the series was axed. Fox also tried to save the series by shopping it to other networks but none were interested.[citation needed][27]

A month later, an Italian spin-off of the series, Braccialetti Rossi, was reported to be earning strong ratings in its Sunday time slot. Due to this news, speculation arose on a possible reboot of the American version.
