Promos are beginning in earnest for the new season of the medical J-dorama Code Blue 3, starring the exact same cast as the first season Code Blue in 2008 and the followup Code Blue 2 in 2010. And everyone looks exactly the same, just more modern in their styling now. I hope everyone’s characters has similarly matured and we get less emo and even less screw ups, though it’s those elements that create the narrative grist and problems our intrepid doctors on heli will need to solve. This will likely be the final go-around for this cast though I can see the franchise continuing with new doctors which is why I’m going to savor this even more. Seeing Yamashita Tomohisa, Aragaki Yui, and Toda Erika back in their heli and doctor outfits brings back so many fond memories, CB may not be a great dorama but it sure as heck was fun to watch. I hope this latest season continues the satisfaction.
