From creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear, Fox's '9-1-1' is scheduled to return to the small screen with a two-night special, airing on September 23 and 24.
Fox has undoubtedly managed to grab eyeballs with its intense new series about first-responders, '9-1-1'. The aptly-titled series, centered on police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and emergency operators as they operate in extreme pressure conditions on a day to day basis, has already established it's high-octane drama and jam-packed storyline with a successful first season and it's just a matter of time before the series returns with yet another season of intense action.
From creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear, '9-1-1' is scheduled to return to the small screen in two weeks. The season 2 premiere, as per the official Fox website, would kick off with a two-night special, airing on September 23 and 24. It's advisable that fans, eagerly awaiting the season premiere, brace for some over-the-top drama as a big one is about to hit the Fox series.
A first-look trailer for season 2, featuring leading stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Oliver Stark and Rockmond Dunbar and series newcomer Jennifer Love Hewitt, was recently dropped on the Internet and if the seconds-long clip is any proof, it's going to be one heck of a premiere event.
"Life can change in seconds." An ominous announcement flashes across the screen as things (literally) explode in the background, making the life of this group of first-responders taxing and challenging. Will they be able to make through this roller-coaster two-night drama? What's the emergency? And most importantly, who is the person on the line asking for help?
Hopefully, the Sunday night premiere - extending through Monday - will offer some plausible explanations. As for now, we only know that something bad has happened and that major responsibilities fall on Hewitt's shoulder's who is joining season 2 of '9-1-1' as the 911 operator Maddie. In the scheme of the plot, Maddie is the sister of Stark's firefighter character, Evan “Buck” Buckley.
Her casting was confirmed by Variety back in May, following shortly after the exit of series regular Connie Britton. The Fox starrer is indeed going to be a big one for the 39-year-old actress, who was last seen on 'Criminal Minds'. "With my lifestyle as a mom, to be able to work in L.A., to be able to dip in and dip out and have it be an ensemble, it’s a great experience," Hewitt had said earlier, dishing about her upcoming stint on the Fox drama. She even gushed about Murphy's procedural, which is all set to dabble in an intense mix of emotions.
"It’s a beautiful show. I mean, you can’t get through an episode without crying or feeling something incredibly intense. The cast is really talented. It’s a perfect job for me to go into right now," the actress added.
