US procedural 9-1-1 has been renewed for a fourth season.
Its spin-off series 9-1-1: Lone Star, starring Rob Lowe, has also been renewed for a second season.
9-1-1 has been averaging 16 million US viewers per episode in multiplatform viewing while the new series is averaging 12.3 million.
“9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star are truly two of the strongest and most thrilling dramas on broadcast television, as well as being centerpieces for FOX Entertainment,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for FOX Entertainment.
“Creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, as well as their incredible teams of writers, directors, casts and entire crews, make jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat magic in every episode. From Los Angeles earthquakes and tsunamis to Texas-sized tornados and bucking broncos, both shows deliver incredible spectacle with strong, identifiable characters you care about week to week. We eagerly look forward to many more thrilling rescues in both series, which help honor this country’s brave first responders, as well as those around the world.”
Remaining 9-1-1 episodes resume on Seven at 9pm next Monday night.
9-1-1: Lone Star is also coming to Seven this year.
