Actress Connie Britton is not returning for season 2. At the end of last season, her character, Abby Clark, and firefighter Buck split, though they still had feelings for each other. Currently, Britton is appearing on American Horror Story: Apocalypse, reprising her role as Vivienne. She also is set to star on the show Dirty John.
A new woman comes into Buck’s life this season, but not in the romantic sense. Jennifer Love Hewitt joins the main cast as Maddie Buckley, Buck’s sister, and, like Abby was, she is a 911 operator. Another new cast member is actor Ryan Guzman, who joins the show as another firefighter.
9-1-1 first premiered in January 2018 and the official description of the series reads, “Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear reimagine the procedural drama with 9-1-1. 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.”
This season, there are some new romances among the characters, more heartbreak, and new situations that put some of your favorite stars in danger. And, the first couple episodes will all revolve around a massive earthquake set in Los Angeles, California, as reported by Variety. Shannon Ryan, Fox’s chief marketing officer, explained the reason for 9-1-1‘s huge premiere event, saying, “While 9-1-1 came out of the gate strong in January and was the number-two new drama of last season, we’ve only aired 10 episodes. Since the show is still young and there are so many fantastic, promotable storylines this season, we felt strongly that we needed to make the return this Fall one of our top priorities. Additionally, 9-1-1 is at the start of our premiere week, so it’s also a great promotional platform we can use for all of our other premieres next week.”
The regular time slot for 9-1-1 will be Monday nights, from 9 – 10 p.m. ET/PT and 8 – 9 p.m. CT, on the Fox network.
