According to reports, Fox has decided not to order any more episodes of its freshman Red Band Society. Red Band Society, called the “Cancer Glee” by critics, will air two more episodes before being removed from the Network. From Deadline:

Red Band Society has become the latest softly rated new series this fall to be allowed to complete its 13-episode pickup with no back order. NBC did it with comedies and A To Z and drama Constantine, all of which also were left on the air to finish their 13-episode freshman runs in their original slots. (Via)

Red Band Society was expected to be one of the biggest shows of the year. However, with poor ratings and a lack of interest, Fox pulled the plug on the TV series.

Based upon the Catalan drama series Polseres vermelles, the series is a dramedy focused on a group of living together as patients in a hospital's pediatric ward.

Red Band Society has received mixed to positive from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show holds a rating of 60%, based on 47 reviews. The site's consensus reads, “Its premise may be questionable and its light-hearted tone is occasionally overbearing, but Red Band Society succeeds on the strength of its young characters.”

This is the second TV series that is filmed in Georgia that was cancelled by network executives. However, it is also expected that ABC will pull the plug on Resurrection, another Georgia production in the next few weeks.
