9-1-1: Lone Star fans, we’re heading back to Austin for season 3.

The action-packed season 2 finale left viewers with mixed emotions. While Tommy (Gina Torres)'s motivation for helping Austin residents was renewed, she was still reeling from Charles (Derek Webster)'s unexpected death. On the job front, she and the rest of the 126 team were still displaced in the latest episode, but their time apart could actually be permanent if Billy (Billy Burke) gets his way. Though nothing is set in stone just yet, the idea of the crew being disbanded was enough for Owen (Rob Lowe) to lash out at the new deputy fire chief.

If you’re eager to see what happens next, here’s what we know about season 3 of 9-1-1: Lone Star.

When will season 3 of 9-1-1: Lone Star premiere?

Ahead of the season 2 finale, the show announced on social media that season 3 of 9-1-1: Lone Star would be happening. A teaser also shared the exciting news.

Actress Gina Torres, who plays Tommy Vega, joined the celebration with her own heartfelt Instagram post.

“Well looky looky!!! And Hallelujah!! Looking forward to resting up and doing it all over again!!” she wrote. “Thank you @foxtv and @20thcenturystudios for believing in us and supporting the diverse and inclusive stories we’re telling!! #onlyloveisreal ❤️.”

Unlike previous seasons, 9-1-1: Lone Star won’t be airing right after 9-1-1 in the fall. Instead, season 3 of 9-1-1: Lone Star will be held for the midseason. But what does this mean exactly? While an official premiere date has yet to be announced, TVLine reports that fans can expect to watch new episodes in January 2022 while 9-1-1 goes on a short hiatus. Then when NFL football wraps up, the two shows will likely resume their back-to-back Monday night schedule.

Who will be in the cast of 9-1-1: Lone Star season 3?

We’re crossing our fingers that the entire 9-1-1: Lone Star main cast and key recurring characters will return for season 3:

  • Rob Lowe as Owen Strand

  • Gina Torres as Tommy Vega

  • Ronen Rubinstein as Tyler Kennedy "TK" Strand

  • Jim Parrack as Judson "Judd" Ryder

  • Sierra McClain as Grace Ryde

  • Natacha Karam as Marjan Marwani

  • Brian Michael Smith as Paul Strickland

  • Julian Works as Mateo Chavez

  • Brianna Baker as Nancy Gillia

  • Carlos Reyes as Rafael Silva

  • Billy Burke as Captain Billy Tyson

Deadline reports that due to the coronavirus pandemic and personal circumstances, actress Liv Tyler wasn’t able to be a part of season 2. Luckily, Suits star Gina Torres stepped in for her and became the new lead alongside actor Rob Lowe. In the third installment, Gina will continue to play Tommy. There's no word yet if Liv plans to make a return.

Most recently, actress Brianna Baker was added to the main cast after consistently guest starring in the Fox series.
