John Harlan Kim is getting promoted for 9-1-1 Season 4!

We finally have an update of sorts for 9-1-1 Season 4! No, it’s not the premiere date but for any of you who loved seeing Chimney’s (Kenneth Choi) half-brother Albert in last season, you’re in luck! According to Variety, John Harlan Kim has been promoted to series regular, which means we’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of their brotherly dynamic.

Given how well Kim did during his recurring role in Season 3, I’m looking very forward to him being around in a larger capacity, especially now that his character is also going to be an uncle.

What can we expect with Albert’s storyline in 9-1-1 Season 4?

Well, we don’t know very much about what the fourth season has in store. However, given how Season 3 ended, especially for Chimney and Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who are expecting a child (yay!)–there is going to be a lot going on for Albert.

Albert and Chimney’s relationship wasn’t off to a great start, but over the course of Season 3, we saw it evolve into something deeper and more meaningful.

Kim’s series regular promotion comes at the perfect time I think because now we will see these characters in a new family dynamic. Maddie and Chimney are entering a new stage of their life, but Albert is still hanging around.

Will he move out? Will he stay on as a manny? And how will this very big change affect the brother’s relationship?

I think these are all questions 9-1-1 Season 4 will surely answer, and I think with Kim being a series regular now, we’re going to see this story develop in a much more elaborate and meaningful way.

Of course, we have to hang tight to see how Albert’s story will play out in Season 4 as filming hasn’t quite begun on 9-1-1. But rest assured, when it does, they will be doing a storyline based on the coronavirus pandemic.

Next. When does This Is Us Season 5 premiere on NBC?. dark

Until then, you can watch (or rewatch) all episodes of 9-1-1 on Hulu!
