The 118 will get back to fighting fires and saving lives on a very fitting day, with a 9-1-1 season 4 premiere set for January 18 at 8 p.m. EST. The third season finished off with mixed emotions, as our characters were faced with a massive train derailment, Buck finally received closure from Abby, Athena began to confront her trauma, Hen set her sights on a new career path, and Maddie and Chimney learned they’re going to be parents. Check out our full review of where season 3 left off here. Season 4 will kick off with “another jaw-dropping signature disaster that only Los Angeles’ finest and fearless first responders can handle.”
After a devastating 8.0 earthquake and coastal tsunami wreaked havoc in the city, what could possibly be next? Meanwhile, among the chaos, Athena is determined to put her physical and emotional injuries behind her and jump back into the job, as Maddie and Chimney prepare for the birth of their baby, and Buck delves into his past to help deal with his present.

Meanwhile, airing back-to-back with its predecessor for the first time, the 126 will return with season 2 of 9-1-1: Lone Star at 9 p.m. EST. As announced back in September, star Liv Tyler will unfortunately not be returning, but thankfully Michelle’s storyline with her missing sister was tied up by the series finale. According to FOX’s synopsis, things will continue to heat up for the 126 in the second season:
Actress Gina Torres joins season 2 of ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ as Captain Tommy Vega. But even as Cpt. Owen Strand welcomes Vega to the 126, he must face the unexpected arrival of his ex-wife, Gwyneth, who visits Austin to check on their firefighter son, T.K., following the injuries he sustained at the end of last season. All of this occurs as the rescue squad must deal with an emergency that the Texas capital has never encountered before.
