‘9-1-1’: Jennifer Love Hewitt Confirms Return to Show for Season 5B


FOX first responder series 9-1-1 is currently on hiatus, but star Jennifer Love Hewitt is already giving fans a reason to look forward to the show’s return this spring! After having to go on maternity leave early on in season 5, Hewitt is coming back, better than ever!

Jennifer Love Hewitt took to Instagram to share how she’s missed her character, Maddie, but “coming back together feels good.” In 9-1-1, Maddie was suffering from postpartum depression, so much so she decided to leave baby Jee-Yun in the hands of baby daddy Chimney for fear of hurting her and not being a good mother. Chimney leaves just a couple of episodes later to find Maddie and bring her back home. In reality, Hewitt was getting ready to have a baby herself and gave birth in September of last year.

There is no exact date for when 9-1-1 will be returning, but it will be sometime in March. In the meantime, spinoff 9-1-1: Lone Star is keeping the timeslot occupied on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX! Check out our other 9-1-1 coverage here.
