Charlie Hutchison is a main character on Red Band Society. He is a patient at Ocean Park Hospital, and in a coma. He was in a car accident with his dad, he couldn't wake up from surgery.  So that is why he is in a coma. His dad lost his visitation rights because he unbuckled Charlie and didn't see another vehicle coming toward him, but pretends to be a volunteer so he can see Charlie. The series is narrated by him. He's nicknamed 'coma boy' by Kara. He had woken up, but has been unable to speak and move. He is portrayed by Griffin Gluck.

Throughout the story, it is hinted that he is in a secret but indulged relationship with Kara. 

Throughout the season Charlie is known to be present while his fellow Red Banders are under anesthesia to give advice, spend some time with them while they are undergoing surgery, and to ask for favours. 

In the last episode Charlie eats a spoon and is good to go home.At the end of the show the Red Banders are singing a song and Charlie joins in.They are all shocked that he could talk.
