9-1-1 is an American procedural drama television series created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear which follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: cops, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers. The series premiered on January 3, 2018, on the Foxnetwork, during the 2017–18 television season. Season one had in total 10 episodes. 9-1-1 has obviously made a splash among viewers, the ratings are solid proof of that. But aside from the numbers, the show has boasted solid plotlines and complex, nuanced views of the lives of first responders and the people with which their lives intertwine. There’s an endless wealth of stories that can come from this premise, and Murphy’s team seems to be far from stopping.
9-1-1 Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?
In the first seasons the main casts were – Angela Bassett (as Athena Grant, LAPD patrol sergeant), Peter Krause (as Bobby Nash, Captain, LAFD), Oliver Stark (as Evan “Buck” Buckley, firefighter), Aisha Hinds (as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson, firefighter/paramedic), Kenneth Choi (as Howie “Chimney” Han, firefighter/paramedic), Rockmond Dunbar (as Michael Grant, Athena’s husband), and Connie Britton (as Abby Clark, 911 operator). Britton did not return to 9-1-1 after season one. The other cast is likely to remain the same for the upcoming seasons with a few additions and subtractions here and there which we should be made aware of once season 3 is renewed.
9-1-1 Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
From creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (the “American Horror Story” franchise, “Nip/Tuck”), new procedural drama 9-1-1 explores the high-pressure experiences of police officers, paramedics and firefighters 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.
Because Bassett, Krause, and Britton are three actors that an audience naturally roots for, they immediately earn our trust and make us care about them. By flinging them and their co-workers into unbearably tense situations every ten minutes, 9-1-1 also reminds us that life is nothing but nonstop curveballs for everybody, even the men and women devoted to protecting the rest of us. This is adrenaline-rush TV. It’s instantly compelling, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and a pretty solid way to start 2018. All of this and more can be expected from season 3.
