Fox has handed season three renewals to both 9-1-1 and The Resident.
The shows which air back to back on Monday nights are generating solid numbers for their network hence the renewal.
9-1-1 is co-created by Ryan Murphy and tells the stories of first responders in Los Angeles across multiple divisions. Angela Bassett and Peter Krause star as an LAPD patrol sergeant and an LAFD station captain respectively.
Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox released the following statement.
“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. 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.”
“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. 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.”
