On April 13, FOX confirmed on social media the first responder series as well as its spin-off will be coming back for more action! FOX’s hit series, 9-1-1, is currently in the midst of airing season three, with about five episodes to go. And luckily, production finished before the COVID-19 pandemic took over. Its spin-off 9-1-1: Lone Star starring Rob Lowe, aired during its hiatus for a 10-episode first season and showed a commercial that seemingly confirmed the Austin-based series would be returning for another season after the finale. FOX themselves hadn’t officially confirmed the news and there was nothing about its predecessor … until now.

Coincidentally, the news came out as 9-1-1 series star, Oliver Stark, was doing an Instagram Live on FOX’s page as part of the network’s #AtHomeWith, watching the pilot episode and season three’s third episode, with fans.
9-1-1: Lone Star became FOX’s #1 new drama while 9-1-1 has steadily remained as one of the network’s biggest shows. The original will be returning for season four, while Lone Star will be returning for a season two. As for a crossover, fans now have more hope that the 118 and 126 will team up in some way.
9-1-1 season three airs every Monday at 8 p.m. ET/7 CT on FOX, streaming the next day on Hulu and the FOXNOW app. Catch up on season three with our recaps here.
