Code Black is losing a major cast member.
Melanie Chandra, who plays resident Malaya Pineda, will not be returning in the show's upcoming third season. To fill this void, the medical drama has cast Tyler Perez (Scream) and Chaley Rose (Nashville) in guest starring roles.
You may read their character descriptions below:
Perez will recur as Diego, a rich and privileged charmster who has been handed everything in his life — including his first year residency at Angels Memorial. The hospital is even allowing him to make a documentary film of his experiences in the hospital.
Rose will guest star in the Season 3 premiere as Pepper, a new resident who’s smart enough to get into the Angels residency program, but possibly not fully equipped for the intensity of the busiest ER in the nation. Terrified of making a mistake, she makes many and has much to learn. In fact, her first mistake is on her very first day and very nearly kills her.
Code Black returns in 2018 on CBS.
