The season 5 premiere of 9-1-1 is less than two weeks away, and FOX has finally released the official synopsis for the first episode, titled “Panic.” While the City of Angels experiences plenty of blackout emergencies that the 118 deals with, the serial rapist goes to trial which brings traumatic memories for Athena, Eddie has a health scare, and Maddie’s postpartum depression gets worse.

The full description for “Panic” reads:

“A series of ransomware threats leads to an overabundance of emergencies for the 118, including a medevac helicopter crash at a hospital and an air-traffic control tower system failure.  Meanwhile Athena must revisit her traumatic attack when the case of the realtor serial rapist goes to trial, Eddie suffers a health scare and Maddie’s postpartum depression worsens.”

Megan has been passionate about writing since she was little and has been passionate about all things pop culture and nerdy since almost as long. Joining Nerds and Beyond in 2019, she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Journalism. Megan is constantly binge-watching shows and finding new things to obsess over. 9-1-1 and Marvel currently reign as the top obsessions. You can find her on Twitter @marvels911s if you ever want to discuss some certain firefighters.
