Liv Tyler Exits ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Ahead of Upcoming Second Season


As reported by Deadline, 9-1-1: Lone Star star Liv Tyler unfortunately will not be appearing in the upcoming second season of the procedural drama due to pandemic-related family and travel issues.

9-1-1: Lone Star follows the story of a New York firefighter and his son (portrayed by Rob Lowe and Ronen Rubinstein, respectively) as they relocate to Austin, Texas to rebuild what remains of Fire Station 126. Tyler portrayed Michelle Blake, a Paramedic EMS Captain who was the female lead opposite Lowe.

Though the character of Michelle and the dynamic Tyler brought to the series will be greatly missed in season 2, thankfully her main story arc had a satisfying conclusion at the end of the first season, as she was finally reunited with her sister.

In lieu of Tyler’s exit, Gina Torres (who was confirmed to be joining the show for season 2 earlier this month) will be entering the scene as Paramedic Captain Tommy Vega. Michelle Blake will not be recast, though. As per series co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner Tim Minear, the 9-1-1 “door” will “always be open for a return” for Tyler.

Stay tuned for more news on 9-1-1: Lone Star.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
