Barely three episodes into its premiere season and FOX’s new series 9-1-1 is already so much of a hit, that they’ve been guaranteed another. On January 16th, the network officially announced that the 9-1-1 would be getting a second season.
The series revolves around the lives of those who respond to the national call of emergency including police officers, first responders, firefighters and more. It was created by the award-winning team of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear who according to the CEOs of the FOX Television Group Gary Newman and Dana Walden, “have done it again”:
“They have tapped into the cultural zeitgeist and reimagined the procedural as only they could, bringing it to life with a dream team of actors led by Angela, Peter and Connie. This is storytelling at its best and we’re so pleased that it’s resonated with our audience. We’d like to thank everyone involved with this production for their stellar work, and we look forward to another thrilling season of ‘9-1-1.’”
Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Connie Britton, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Rockmond Dunbar all star in the show and it currently holds a 65% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
