Fox Revives Ryan Murphy’s ‘9-1-1’ for Season 2

Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton star on first-responder series

Fox has renewed “9-1-1” for a Season 2. The first-responder drama hails from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, and stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton, among others.

“9-1-1” explores the high-pressure experiences of police officers, firefighters and emergency operators who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations, per Fox’s official description. These first responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.

The procedural drama also stars Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi and Rockmond Dunbar. With three days of delayed viewing, the series premiere of “9-1-1” grew to 10.5 million viewers.

On Wednesday’s new “9-1-1,” Bobby (Krause) and his team respond to an emergency at a children’s birthday party that leaves lives hanging in the balance. The crew jumps into action after one of their own is involved in a devastating accident. Athena (Bassett) tries to cope with a tragedy that hits way too close to home, and Abby (Britton) is confronted with a life-changing decision for her mother and makes a connection with Buck (Stark).

“9-1-1” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Murphy, Falchuk and Minear are creators, executive producers and writers on the series.

Bradley Buecker is an executive producer and directed the series premiere. Alexis Martin Woodall and Bassett are also executive producers.
