Following the success of the recent season of “9-1-1”, which has moved from FOX to ABC and pulled in 11.76 million total viewers within the first seven days, Disney has announced that the show has been renewed for an eighth season.  The show has delivered the highest-rated multiplatform television telecast in two years and the most-streamed day ever on Hulu.   This success has no doubt helped secure a quick renewal for another season.

The series explores the high-pressure experiences of first responders — including police officers, firefighters and dispatchers — who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives. The show draws from real-life, high-pressure experiences of first responders who regularly face heart-stopping situations that are often unpredictable, intense and uplifting at the same time.

“9-1-1” stars Angela Bassett as Athena Grant, Peter Krause as Bobby Nash, Jennifer Love Hewitt as Maddie Buckley, Oliver Stark as Evan “Buck” Buckley, Kenneth Choi as Howie “Chimney” Han, Aisha Hinds as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson, Ryan Guzman as Eddie Diaz and Gavin McHugh as Christopher Diaz.

Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, “9-1-1” is produced by 20th Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, John J. Gray, Brad Buecker, Kristen Reidel, Juan Carlos Coto and Lyndsey Beaulieu also serve as executive producers. Minear also serves as showrunner.

The previous seasons of “9-1-1” are available to stream now on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+.  The series is also available to stream on Disney+ in many countries including the United Kingdom and Canada.
