The network has issued a quick pickup for Season 2.
January 16, 2018
Fox announced today that 9-1-1 has been renewed for a second season. The early pickup comes after just two episodes of the new Ryan Murphy drama, which is off to a solid start since its premiere earlier this month.
Though just getting started, freshman series has made a good impression on Wednesday nights, where it has beaten out fellow time slot dramas at 9:00pm in the key adults 18-49 demographic. Where total audience is concerned, the premiere episode has garnered 15 million viewers in 7-day multi-platform viewing - the network's largest debut since 2015 with Empire.
Featuring a big-name cast that includes Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, and Peter Krause, 9-1-1 follows the people who put their lives on the line to save and protect others: police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and even 911 operators. Its storylines are based on the high-pressure experiences of real-life first responders, resulting in a variety of situations that range from intense to unpredictable to uplifting.
No time frame has been set yet for the show's Season 2 return. How the rest of this season plays out could determine whether Fox keeps it as a mid-season entry or moves it to its regular fall lineup.

The previews were awesome. The actors are big names and proven. I’ve watched every episode and still watching, but y’all, it is really bad. It has to be the writing or directing because individually, these actors are great. But it is so cheesy. It’s also not well thought out. Did you see the VDay show where the cop was tied up? When she got loose she was joking with the jilted girl instead of calling in a MURDER. I don’t even know why I’m still watching. I guess because it’s an easy show to watch and shut my brain off.

I'm happy. I love this show!

I like this show (for the most part) and the gay character doesn't bother me. Most of the shows I watch have a gay character. Angela's character is great. She plays a strong woman and stands her ground (which is good). Last nights episode was good, but I hated the jumping around.

I read all the comments and to pit it simply the show S.U.C.K. Everything about out the show suck. So unbelievably I don’t know which is worst this show or the sorry show S.W.A.T.

I can see why they got the initial views, they previews definitely made the show out to be something it isn’t. The acting is horrible, and it’s definitly not true to life in any means. Maybe it’s not supposed to be or maybe I missed something. But this is an awful show, and fox has cancelled better.

I wasn’t going to watch this show, I had thought “Not ANOTHER medical drama!” but the negative homophobic reaction changed my mind. If there is one thing I hate more than anything its homophobes (any-phones, really), so I figured the show had to be good if it got all those a-holes in a tizzy! And I was right. This is really good. Its not just an anthology of different medical emergencies each episode. There is an actual story with the characters that carries through to the next.

Have to laugh at the homophobic dislike for this show. I like that this show has gone a different route than most other emergency services shows. For example, the fire services not often tackling fires. (Thats true to life). The emotional turmoil of actually losing people on the job. The first couple of episodes did a good job of building the character stories, and I can see this being a gripping show. As for the "gay agenda", get over it folks. It happens in real life. Its a storyline I dont remember being tackled in a tv show in this way either. The gay man is not being put on a pedestal. They are showing how his decision to hide who he was for so long is having an impact on everyone around him. Its showing how being homophobic not only hurts the person getting the abuse, but also affects their families. Personally I love the show more seeing how butthurt all the snowflake bigots are.

I was dubious when the previews showed Angela Bassett in a very tight fitting police uniform without a bulletproof vest underneath it. Yes, she looks good, but that's not the real world.
Then I watched the first episode, and I gave up after 10 minutes. Sorry, it's all about the soap opera -- the "Grey's Anatomy" of first responders.

Clearly a specific demographic play that is "good enough" versus good fundamental based entertainment that would appeal to a broader audience.
Entertainment Value = Low, this isn't a show you will talk about at work or get that "I can't wait for the next episode" feeling
Acting = Poor, almost to the point of being manufactured
Episodes = segmented and sparse where nothing truly develops in an individual episode, only there to support characters and their issues/demons
Character Depth = Sprinkle a bit of every far corner persona approach; sex addict, gay man in a marriage, older woman taking care of her dying mother, etc.

I watched the first episode and laughed my butt off.
Wait, this isn't a comedy?
