Fox's newest procedural drama, 9-1-1 has barely begun, but it already has a Season 2 pickup.
The series stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton as the first responders to a host of emergencies in the Los Angeles area. Together, they combine their teams of 911 emergency phone line operators, firefighters, and police officers to handle everything from dog attacks to suicides to home invasions. The series racked up 15 million viewers for its pilot episode which aired last week and made it the second most watched broadcast premiere of the season after ABC's The Good Doctor.
"With a bold concept, award-winning stars and a flawless execution, Ryan [Murphy], Brad [Falchuk] and Tim [Minear] have done it again," Gary Newman and Dana Walden, Chairmen & CEOs, Fox Television Group, said in a statement today. "They have tapped into the cultural zeitgeist and reimagined the procedural as only they could, bringing it to life with a dream team of actors led by Angela, Peter and Connie. This is storytelling at its best and we're so pleased that it's resonated with our audience. We'd like to thank everyone involved with this production for their stellar work, and we look forward to another thrilling season of 9-1-1."
9-1-1 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
