“9-1-1: Lonestar” Renewed For A Fifth Season
FOX Entertainment has announced that it has renewed the “9-1-1” spin-off series, “9-1-1: Lonestar”, for a fifth season. The series is created by Disney’s 20th Television.
The series tells the story of Owen Strand was the lone survivor of his Manhattan firehouse on 9/11, and in the wake of the attack, was left with the unenviable task of rebuilding the station. After a similar tragedy strikes a firehouse in Austin, Texas, Owen — along with his troubled firefighter son, T.K. — takes his progressive philosophies of life and firefighting down to the Lone Star State to help them start anew. On the surface, Owen is all about big-city style and swagger, but underneath, he struggles with a secret he hides from the world — one that could very well end his life. In the second season, as Owen welcomes the 126’s newest member, Captain Vega, into the fold, he also must face the unexpected arrival of his ex-wife, Gwyneth, who visits Austin to check on their firefighter son, T.K., following the injuries he sustained at the end of last season. All of this occurs as the rescue squad must deal with an emergency that the Texas capital has never encountered before.
The series stars Lowe, Gina Torres, Ronen Rubinstein, Sierra McClain, Jim Parrack, Natacha Karam, Brian Michael Smith, Rafael Silva, Julian Works, Brianna Baker, as well as Kelsey and Skyler Yates.
Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear are creators, executive producers and writers. Bradley Buecker is an executive producer and directed the series premiere. Alexis Martin Woodall, Rashad Raisani, John J. Gray, Angela Bassett, Lowe, Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson and Bob Goodman also are executive producers.
Earlier today, it was revealed that Fox had cancelled “9-1-1”, but ABC has picked up the series and will move the show over to ABC for the next season.
Previous seasons of “9-1-1: Lonestar” and “9-1-1” are available to stream on Hulu in the United States. The series is also released exclusively on Disney+ in many countries, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.
