Two US dramas, both of which screen on Seven, got the good news overnight that they will be back for more.
9-1-1 and The Resident will both proceed to third seasons.
9-1-1 has been averaging 6.22 million US viewers across 11 episodes of its second season.
“9-1-1 redefined what a procedural series can be, consistently delivering edge-of-your-seat emergencies, mixed with emotional story arcs and incredible performances from one of the most powerful teams of actors on television,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at FOX said in a statement. “Kudos to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and their entire crew, as well as the amazing cast anchored by Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt for raising the bar week after week.”
Season two of The Resident is averaging just over 5 million US viewers and is currently screening Tuesday nights in Australia on Seven.
“Amy Holden Jones, Todd Harthan and the team behind The Resident continue to showcase their brilliant storytelling, revealing both the triumphs and tragedy within the medical world. Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp and Bruce Greenwood, along with the stellar cast, have developed rich and compelling characters through their heartfelt performances,” Thorn added. “We want to thank our producing partners, 20th Century Fox Television, who have steered these two extraordinary series. Both 9-1-1 and The Resident have many, many more stories to tell and we can’t wait to deliver them to fans next season.”
