3 seasons in, FOX’s ‘9-1-1’ continues to ring in massive ratings week after week. So much so, the network has opted to renew the Angela Bassett-led series and its spinoff for new seasons.
‘9-1-1’ reigns as FOX’s flagship drama series, averaging over 9 million viewers each season. To toast its continued success, FOX has announced an early renewal for the show. Not only that, its spinoff ‘9-1-1: Lone Star,’ has been renewed for a second.
Taking to press, Michael Thorn – President of Entertainment at FOX – expressed his elation over the series’ respective performances.
“9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star are truly two of the strongest and most thrilling dramas on broadcast television, as well as being centerpieces for Fox Entertainment,” said Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment. “Creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, as well as their incredible teams of writers, directors, casts and entire crews, make jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat magic in every episode. From Los Angeles earthquakes and tsunamis to Texas-sized tornados and bucking broncos, both shows deliver incredible spectacle with strong, identifiable characters you care about week to week. We eagerly look forward to many more thrilling rescues in both series, which help honor this country’s brave first responders, as well as those around the world.”
