What is sudden wave of mid-aughts J-ent nostalgia and can it please continue? Fresh off relieving all of Horikita Maki’s classic hit J-doramas after hearing that she was retiring from showbiz to be a homemaker (though it might just be for a few years and she could return), then learning that Maki’s two costars from Nobuta wo Produce in bromance duo Yamashita Tomohisa and Kamenashi Kazuya were reuniting in an upcoming romance J-dorama, all I need is a fridge full of snack food and a free weekend to return to the halcyon days of marathoning J-doramas. Now there’s a third nostalgia moment coming our way so get ready for heli-action as the good doctors of Code Blue are returning for a season 3! No joke, the hit medical dorama which had two full seasons and one SP is coming back after 7 years since season 2 finished in 2010, and even better is all three main docs in Yamapi, Aragaki Yui, and Toda Erika are returning. Hooboy!
I legit don’t remember how season 2 ended but likely as whatever as season 1, maybe they all got suspended or fired or stripped of their medical license for all the over the top stuff that happens anytime they encounter an emergency where everything goes wrong. Whatever lacking I saw in the original CB doesn’t even matter anymore, I will be all smiles watching season 3. CB3 airs in its classic time slot as a Getsuku (Mon at 9) come this summer.
