The new season will also return to the approach that worked well for the first few seasons
Fall is almost here, and that means the return of some hit shows across all TV networks, with fans tuning in religiously for each season. ‘9-1-1′ is one of those fan favorites, returning to its weekly Fox slot for Season 6. The series that follows the lives of Los Angeles’ first responders: cops, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers have kept fans biting their nails for the past five seasons and now they’re back with another episode.
Showrunner Kristen Reidel spoke to TVLine about how Season 6 will return to the old formula. “We’ve moved a bit away from the massive, multi-episode catastrophe,” she told the outlet. “They’re a bit hard to find once you’ve done an earthquake and tsunami,” she said. Also, viewers will be excited to see how things develop between Bobby (Peter Krause) and Athena (Angela Bassett) after the two got married last season. Reidel teased how things are faring for the duo, saying: “Athena will face a bit of a challenge at the start of the season” but will have her new husband’s support to help her get through.
