Red Band Society isn't dead yet.
It's barely breathing, however. When Fox decided in November not to order additional episodes, everyone thought it was probably the death knell for the series starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer and Dave Annabele.
Fox revealed the show will air Red Band Society Season 1 Episode 11 on Saturday, January 31 at 9/8c and the remaining two installments back-to-back on February 7, beginning at 8/7c.
Showrunner Rina Mimoun shared in December to expect a satisfying, if open-ended, conclusion to the series at the end of the current episode order. There will be a major character death, but the spirit of Red Band Society is life goes on, with Spencer's Nurse Jackson as the heart and soul of Ocean Park Hospital. While some Red Bander's stories may be tied up, the nature of the story at hand will be that more tales can always be told.
She also urged fans to keep the love flowing for the series. If you're a true fan, watch Red Band Society online via TV Fanatic and share your love of RBS on Twitter and Facebook. You never know what might happen.
