“Code Blue” gets second season in Fuji TV’s Monday night time slot

Fuji TV recently confirmed that last year’s popular “Code Blue” drama series is getting a second full season. The show’s first season averaged 15.9% ratings, and a special episode that aired this past January achieved 23.1% ratings.

Although the drama originally aired in the network’s Thursday 10:00pm time slot, it has now been moved to the Monday 9:00pm slot. Lead actor Tomohisa Yamashita (24) was also the star of “Buzzer Beat” this past summer, making him the first person ever to star in two “Getsu 9″ dramas separated by only a season.

In addition to Yamashita, the main cast of Yui Aragaki (21), Erika Toda (21), Manami Higa (23), and Yosuke Asari (22) is returning. Other familiar faces include Masanobu Katsumura (46), Susumu Terajima (46), Tetta Sugimoto (44), and Ryo (36), while Kippei Shiina (45) is a new addition.

Broadcast begins in January.
