“9-1-1” and its Texas-based spinoff, “9-1-1: Lone Star,” have both been renewed by Fox, which comes as no surprise given that “9-1-1” is Fox’s most-watched scripted series and “Lone Star” is just behind it. Fans of “Lone Star” know that as the season comes to a close, the show has been ramping up the drama in the firehouse, thanks to the fallout from an arson investigation (via Entertainment Tonight), a recent death in one character’s family, and a coming storm that promises to wreak havoc in Austin, Texas, as noted by On The Flix.
This season will conclude on May 24 after only 14 episodes, potentially due to COVID-19 limits and issues in 2020. Fans can relax, though, since a new season is on the way, as the show’s official account confirmed on Twitter yesterday, which means more of Rob Lowe, Gina Torres, Ronen Rubinstein, and the rest of the 126, as well as their families and friends. Here’s everything we know about Season 3 thus far.
Lone Star Season 3 will be released on what date?
Fans of “9-1-1: Lone Star,” prepare to be surprised. The show will not return alongside the original “9-1-1” this fall, according to Fox. “9-1-1” will return to its regular Monday night time slot of 8 p.m. ET, while “Lone Star” will not be back until January 2022. And then it’ll be separated from the flagship show for a while as Fox premieres “The Big Leap,” a Scott Foley-led dramedy set in the ballet world as portrayed in a reality show, on Mondays.
According to TVLine, after the football season concludes in March, the two “9-1-1″s will reconvene on Mondays.
According to Michael Thorn, Fox Entertainment’s head of entertainment, via TV Insider, viewers can expect an epic crossover event involving both series whenever the shows resume their back-to-back scheduling. However, because “Lone Star” is a midseason replacement, another shortened season is possible — and this is a show with only 24 episodes after two seasons.
Lone Star Season 3 cast members
Because of the COVID-19 problems associated with commuting back and forth from London to Los Angeles for filming, actress Liv Tyler chose not to return for the second season of “Lone Star.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, this resulted in Gina Torres being cast as Captain Tommy Vega, a mother who is forced to return to work as a first responder after her husband’s restaurant closes due to the epidemic. It’s difficult to determine whether or not there will be any more high-profile departures between Seasons 2 and 3, but we hope not.
Rob Lowe plays Owen Strand, a New York City firefighter who moved to Austin to assist rebuild the firehouse, and Ronen Rubinstein plays his son T.K., who was also a firefighter before becoming a paramedic. Sierra McClain plays Judd Ryder’s wife Grace, a 9-1-1 operator, and Jim Parrack plays him. In addition to Brian Michael Smith, Rafael Silva, Natacha Karam, and Julian Works, the film features Brian Michael Smith, Rafael Silva, Natacha Karam
Lone Star Season 3 has a plot.
Of course, what happens at the end of Season 2 has some bearing on the plot of Season 3. Tommy’s recent upheaval will undoubtedly have long-term ramifications in the upcoming season, and Judd and Grace will almost surely have to deal with motherhood following her turbulent pregnancy, which occurred concurrently with her recuperation from the truck accident in the middle of Season 2.
As they navigate life as live-in partners, Carlos and T.K., who have recently moved in together, may continue to have arguments (such as the one that saw them on opposing sides during the recent arson case).
With the impending massive dust storm, fans may expect a lot of consequences. The season finale hasn’t yet aired, so you’ll have plenty of time to speculate on what might happen when it does.
