9-1-1: Lone Star will return for a fourth season. The hit emergency drama, which focuses on the fire and police departments in Austin, Texas, was renewed on 16 May by Fox alongside Call Me Kat, Welcome to Flatch and The Masked Singer.
The fate of Lone Star’s mothership series, 9-1-1, is yet to be confirmed, although the network stated that “additional series renewals” are forthcoming. “We are in good-faith negotiations [on 9-1-1 and The Resident],” Fox Entertainment CEO said on Fox’s upfront call. “Based on the long history with 20th Television, I think we are in pretty good shape.
We adore [co-creator and EP] Ryan [Murphy] and are so pleased that Lone Star is locked and loaded.” Created by Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minnear, Lone Star has received praise for its diverse and inclusive casting, receiving two nominations for Outstanding Drama Series at the GLAAD Media Awards.
