With the actor’s strike now over and production on many hit shows set to resume after Thanksgiving, Disney has revealed its winter lineup and announced that “9-1-1” will return with a brand new seventh season on ABC on Thursday, 14th March 2024 and available the next day through Hulu.
Produced by 20th Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision, the series will continue to explore 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.
Earlier this year, it was announced that FOX hadn’t renewed the show for another season. However, ABC decided to continue with a new season since “9-1-1” is created by Disney’s 20th Television, and the show is also released in many countries around the world, including the UK and Australia, exclusively on Disney+.
No international release date has been confirmed for the new season of “9-1-1”, and it’s unlikely we will know until much nearer the release date, since Disney doesn’t tend to reveal international dates for its linear first shows.
“9-1-1” will also be available through Hulu on Disney+, as the show was recently specifically mentioned by Disney CEO Bob Iger, to be one of the titles that will be available on Disney+ in the US in December as part of the new one-app experience that’ll allow Hulu subscribers to watch content directly on Disney+.
Disney has released a sneak teaser for the upcoming show’s return:
Earlier this week it was revealed that the “9-1-1” spinoff series, “9-1-1: Lonestar”, was going to be delayed until the fall of 2024 due to the delays caused by the strikes. FOX decided it wanted to keep that series, rather than spending out on both shows, which it had the rights to, before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox.
As with many other scripted drama series, the next season will likely be much shorter than usual, due to the lost time from strikes, in order to get back on schedule for next year’s season. This is similar to how season four had fewer episodes due to the pandemic.
“9-1-1” stars Angela Bassett as Athena Grant, Peter Krause as Bobby Nash, Jennifer Love Hewitt as Maddie Kendall, Oliver Stark as Evan “Buck” Buckley, Kenneth Choi as Howie “Chimney” Han, Aisha Hinds as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson, Ryan Guzman as Eddie Diaz, Corinne Massiah as May Grant, Marcanthonee Jon Reis as Harry Grant, and Gavin McHugh as Christopher Diaz.
The series was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear. Alexis Martin Woodall, Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, John J. Gray, Kristen Reidel and Juan Carlos Coto also serve as executive producers.
Previous seasons of “9-1-1” are now available to stream on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries.
