Fox announced today that 9-1-1 has been picked up for Season 5. The good news comes with one week left in the procedural drama's fourth season, which has continued its strong performance as the network's #1 original scripted series. Spin-off 9-1-1: Lone Star was also picked up today for a third season.

The hour-long drama premiered in 2018 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 and Peter Krause. It has since found a regular spot in Fox's fall lineup, where it maintains its flagship status.

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 5 of 9-1-1 this fall as part of the 2021-2022 season.
