Fox announced today that 9-1-1 has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes one week after the show returned for the back-half of its sophomore run, which has continued to perform well for the network since being moved to its regular fall line-up.

The hour-long drama premiered early last year as a mid-season entry with a lot of buzz thanks in-part to its high-profile co-creator, Ryan Murphy, and its big-name cast that features the likes of Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, and Peter Krause. Its strong showing has continued into 2019, where it remains Fox's top-rated scripted original series.

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.

Look for Season 3 of 9-1-1 this fall.
