Ahead of its season 4 finale later this month, 9-1-1 – Fox's most-watched and highest-rated scripted series – will be returning for another shift with season 5. 9-1-1's Texas-based spin-off has also been renewed, and will continue with season 3 (via TVLine).
9-1-1 is expected to return to screens in its usual timeslot later this year, while new episodes of Lone Star are scheduled to air in January 2022.
It's also reported that both 9-1-1 shows will air back-to-back once the football season in the US ends.
Following the success of February's special crossover episode, it looks as though the separate 9-1-1 squads will be reuniting once again. Fox teased that fans should "keep an eye out for a crossover in the back half of the [TV] season".
In other 9-1-1-related news, Lone Star's Ronen Rubinstein recently came out as bisexual. Speaking last month, the actor – who plays TK Strand – revealed that he "finally" felt "comfortable" with his sexuality.
Ronen, whose character is gay and in a relationship with fellow officer Carlos Reyes, credited fans for embracing TK and Carlos as a couple with giving him the courage to speak out.
"The fans, especially the Tarlos fans, it's one of the biggest reasons that I finally felt safe and comfortable to talk about it and to finally embrace it and be happy about it," he told Variety.
