Fans of the widely popular medical drama series ‘Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji‘ will be delighted to hear that Fuji TV has just announced that there is going to be a new season this summer.
‘Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji’ is set at an emergency ward and follows a team of doctors as they try to save as many lives as possible. This time the main cast will be slightly different due to the sudden withdrawal of actor Eguchi Yosuke, who had been portraying ‘Shindo Kazuo’ since the first season.
Actress Matsushima Nanako, who has also been part of this series since the beginning except for the second season, is going to reprise her role as ‘Kojima Kaede’. It’s her first drama starring role since ‘Kaseifu no Mita‘ (NTV) in 2011. Actor Sasaki Kuranosuke was already confirmed as a new addition to the main cast, while actor Tokito Saburo was approached after the withdrawal of Eguchi just before the start of the production.
DREAMS COME TRUE are once again going to write the theme song for the new season. The title for the song has yet to be announced.
The plot of the new season focuses on Kaede, who has become the chief of the medical staff of the emergency and critical care center at a university hospital. She has difficulties gathering a team of doctors around her and still lacks the confidence to be a leader, yet has to work under the pressure of the expectations of a university hospital. The only member of her team is emergency doctor ‘Honsho Masaharu’ (Sasaki), but one day the organ transplant specialist ‘Natsume Mamoru’ decides to become an emergency doctor and joins her team. This season is going to depict Kaede’s struggles as a doctor, medical chief and as a woman.
It will be interesting to see how this series can compensate for the loss of the character ‘Shindo Kazuo’, at least for this season. The expectations are high, since the previous four seasons never recorded average ratings of less than 19% and Matsushima’s previous drama engagement with a leading role reached ratings as high as 40%.
Fuji TV is going to start airing the fifth season of ‘Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji’ in July.
The second season of Fuji TV’s popular drama ‘Galileo‘ starring Fukuyama Masaharu was anticipated by many fans and premiered on April 15th with very high expectations. Fortunately all the expectations have been met as the first episode of this season’s “Getsu 9″ (Monday 9 pm) drama recorded an average rating of 22.6%.
Fukuyama himself commented about the ratings, “I’m relieved that it was seen by this many people and happy that they were looking forward to it that much. This result is going to make us enjoy working on it even more and give us the energy as well as pressure to work hard until the final episode. Please tune in again next week!”
The first episode was given an extended runtime of an additional 30 minutes and the highest rating was recorded during the revelation of the trick behind the first case at exactly 10:07 pm. At this moment it reached a peak of 25.3%.
The first season that aired in 2007 premiered with an average rating of 24.7%.
