Astro is all smiles while leaving the SiriusXM studios after an interview on Tuesday morning (December 2) in New York City.
The 18-year-old actor/rapper’s show Red Band Society is in danger of being cancelled completely following Fox’s decision to halt production after only 13 episodes.
Executive producer Rina Mimoun caught up with TVGuide about the chances that tomorrow night’s mid-season finale could be the end.
“If [this episode] is the end, it will definitely leave you hanging!” Rina said. “I have always believed the show would work best in shorter cycles. Keeping the kids in the hospital for too long begins to stretch credibility. Creatively, this felt like the best decision. But I’m hopeful the final three episodes of our first season will air in the new year. As far as a second season, I know there are more stories to tell at Ocean Park Hospital and with Nurse Jackson (Octavia Spencer) at the helm, I feel like anything is possible!”
She added about what fans will miss, “Not only because he is such a fan favorite, but because Astro brings such humor and honesty to the role. We are giving him more to play in these final three episodes [which] we’re excited about.”
