FOX is preparing for a full slate of shows in the new year, and the network has just released a new 20-minute long video previewing all of their winter shows. Mondays are going to be on fire come January with the return of FOX’s flagship series, 9-1-1, and spin-off, as well as last season’s #1 new show, 9-1-1: Lone Star.
Everything is bigger in Texas, and the new preview for Lone Star further proves it. Rob Lowe, who plays Captain Owen Strand, says that the season is bigger than the previous, while 126 newcomer Gina Torres, who will be playing Paramedic Captain Tommy Vega, states that she’s “very excited to be part of this incredible ensemble.”
Meanwhile, fans of Tarlos, aka T.K. and Carlos, played by Ronen Rubinstein and Rafael Silva, respectively, finally get their first dose of the show’s hottest couple in season 2. While Rubinstein says they’re able to dive deeper into their characters this season, a clip shows Carlos and T.K. having playful banter during a call as Carlos tells T.K., “You firefighters really are a smug bunch” to which T.K. replies, “You love it.”
As Silva says, the situations are bigger and better since the crew is in Texas. A tank makes its way through the city as the APD is trying to stop it and Owen stands right in front of it. Wildfires, active volcanos, and even Natacha Karam as Marjan being lowered into the ground at a mini-golf course make the season that much more intense than the first.
Also previewed is the introduction of Owen’s ex-wife, Gwenyth, played by Lisa Edelstein, and it is a true family affair. The ex-pair seems to be getting pretty close since they are both lying in bed together, simply trying to make it through the apocalypse like everybody else. While chewing on a sucker, T.K. points out to his parents that the walls in the house are not that thick.
It’s going to be a wild year, and the preview probably didn’t even give the full taste of what’s to come in season 2. The 126 and company have one last shot to turn the tide and season 2 seems like it’s going to be insane. Season 2 of 9-1-1: Lone Star premieres on Monday, January 18 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT following the season 4 premiere of 9-1-1 on FOX. Season 1 of Lone Star is streaming now on Hulu and the FOX NOW app.
