New ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Video Shows “The Importance of Inclusion” for the Cast and Characters


9-1-1: Lone Star‘s second season is almost here, and FOX has released a new video showing the importance of inclusion, both among the cast and characters, in today’s world.

Rob Lowe mentions the storytelling this year is more personal, while Ronen Rubinstein says playing a gay firefighter has brought some of the most humbling experiences of his life, both as an actor and as a human. Rubinstein hopes that with season 2, they can make people feel seen, heard, and understood. Natacha Karam explains that the world we live in is diverse and made up of so many different people and cultures; there’s no one way to be Muslim, there’s no one way to be gay, and there isn’t only one way to be human. Brian Michael Smith says that he can be a hero and to be that kind of representation is exactly why he became an actor in the first place while Rafael Silva says by playing an LGBTQIA+ character he can have a voice, not only for himself but for other people.

The video is a mix between cast commentary and new scenes from the upcoming season that feature more Tarlos, 126’s newest Paramedic Captain, and a first look at some of the calls the crew will be dealing with, including one that happens over a Zoom call.
