Red Band Society executive producer Margaret Nagle has hinted that the show could run 12 seasons.
Speaking to TVGuide, Nagle revealed that the entire series will cover about a year, with Season 1 taking place over a month, possibly two.
“A day in a hospital feels like a year. So the whole series will probably take place over the course of the year, we’re going through like a month in Season 1, maybe two.”
It’s unclear whether the hospital drama intends to stick to that timeline for each subsequent season. Whether it gets the chance to come back for Season 2 (let alone 12 seasons) will be decided over the coming weeks and months.
