Fox has officially renewed 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star!
The world of 9-1-1 is here to stay, ladies and gentlemen! Yes, that’s right! According to TVLine, not only will the original series return for its fourth season (how are we there already!?) but 9-1-1: Lone Star will get a second season.
Honestly, I’m not all that surprised given how well this franchise does for Fox. It’s that Ryan Murphy touch, folks. Anything he creates usually brings success and the 9-1-1 franchise is no exception.
I have been curious, however, as to whether or not we’ll ever get a crossover between the two shows. It seems inevitable given Murphy has been known to do that in the past with American Horror Story. Is that something they’re hoping to do for both 9-1-1 shows as well?
It’s unclear at this point in time, but I think we can only hope that this will happen one day. I think it’d be fun to see Rob Lowe crossover from Austin into Los Angeles and help the team out with some unexpected problems there. His character teaming up with Buck is something I’m definitely here for–just saying.
Now, I haven’t watched the spin-off, but given that it got another season, it must be up to par with its predecessor. And based on its numbers, it’s really not that far behind. TVLine reports that Lone Star “averaged a 1.2 rating and 6.3 million total viewers with its 10-episode midseason debut.”
Meanwhile, 9-1-1 is “averaging just over a 1.4 demo rating and 6.8 million total viewers (through its April 6 episode, in Live+Same Day numbers)”. So yeah, it’s safe to say the spin-off is really keeping up.
All of these stats and the love for both shows isn’t that shocking because of the unique and crazy stories we get from them. I mean the original show has already dealt with a tsunami, crazy car accidents, people hanging out of buildings, and that’s just the less squeamish stuff.
I know every week I’m tuning in to see what crazy thing is going to happen next. And I’m happy to report–I’m never disappointed.
Are you excited that we’ll be getting another season of both shows? Tell us below!
