Season 3 of “9-1-1” coming to an end this week on M6, it is appropriate to wonder about the series which will take over in primetime on Thursday. Get ready to meet new everyday heroes, ready to do anything to save us.
Bobby, Athena, Buck, Eddie and the rest of the gang are about to retire from the screens for quite a while. And for good reason, M6 broadcasts this Thursday, October 22 the last two episodes – rich in emotions – of season 3 of 9-1-1. Viewers are not about to find these brave heroes again, as the unreleased series of season 4 will not be scheduled until January in the United States. A word of advice: enjoy these last two opus.
A break for Halloween!
Next Thursday, M6 will not broadcast a series. During this school holiday period and with the approach of the Halloween weekend, the chain has planned a program more suited to the family. On October 29 at 9:05 p.m., viewers will be able to watch Coco, an animated feature film Disney / Pixar colorful, funny and full of tenderness, followed in the 2nd part of the evening by reruns of 9-1-1.
Even more thrills?
M6 will then offer, from the following Thursday, November 5 from 9:05 p.m., a spin off of 9-1-1 which has the particularity of having no link with the mother series, except that of extending the franchise. No need therefore to expect the participation of the protagonists of the 118 brigade of Los Angeles. Also developed by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, 9-1-1: Lone star highlights a new team supported by Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler. The show was well received when it launched in early 2020 on US screens, and season 2 will begin next January across the Atlantic.
A charismatic leader
The action of this novelty does not take place in California. Rob Lowe plays Owen Strand, a New York firefighter who was able to support his colleagues after the trauma of the attacks of September 11, 2001. When an intervention turns into a tragedy in Austin, causing the death of almost all of a brigade , Owen is sent there, in Texas, to take the controls of the station 126. It will therefore have to constitute a new team on the ashes of the previous one.
Among the new hires, you’ll meet TK (Ronen Rubinstein), Owen’s own son, an openly gay firefighter who is just recovering from an overdose and heartache. Adrenaline-seeking Muslim Marjan Marwani (Natacha Karam), Paul Strickland (Brian Michael Smith), a transsexual with an observational gift worthy of Sherlock Holmes, and Mateo Chavez (Julian Works), a newbie with dyslexia, will complete the group. In addition to learning to tame each other, everyone will need to be cold-blooded to come to the aid of people in danger.
At the same time, Owen will try to convince Judd Ryder (Jim Parrack), the only survivor of the decimated brigade, to return to service. Very affected by the disappearance of his old partners, will he agree to bond with the new arrivals? Grace (Sierra McClain), wife of Judd, a 911 operator, will give insight into her delicate work in the emergency call service. Interventions on the ground will lead Owen to cross paths with Michelle Blake (Liv Tyler), the captain of Austin’s emergency medical services. This one is also friends with Carlos Reyes (Rafael Silva), a young police officer who will not remain indifferent to the charm of the dark TK
Composed of 10 episodes, this 1st season of 9-1-1: Lone star will focus on the exceptional career of these valiant fighters, their flaws, their sufferings and their joys. They will share with us their difficult daily life and the many risks involved in ensuring the protection of citizens. Will Owen manage to build a tight-knit team while secretly fighting his own fight … against cancer?
