9-1-1 will return for an eighth season.

ABC made the announcement on Tuesday, April 2, just days before the milestone 100th episode of the first responder drama airs.

The series stars Angela Bassett as Athena Grant, Peter Krause as Bobby Nash, Jennifer Love Hewitt as Maddie Buckley, Oliver Stark as Evan “Buck” Buckley, Kenneth Choi as Howie “Chimney” Han, Aisha Hinds as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson, Ryan Guzman as Eddie Diaz, and Gavin McHugh as Christopher Diaz.

9-1-1 moved over to ABC after Fox announced in May 2023 that it would not move forward with the show.

Urban Hollywood 411 spoke with Aisha Hinds shortly after ABC picked up the series.

“Seven seasons of a show is an anomaly in this landscape these days, so to have the opportunity to do the show for yet another season is a blessing unto itself and for us to be so welcomed over at ABC is a joy and a treasure,” the actress said.

The season 7 premiere was delayed because of the Hollywood strikes.

When it aired on March 14, the episode was watched by 8.8 million total viewers on ABC, Hulu and digital platforms in the live + 3 days measurement category, per Nielsen data released by ABC. It was the show’s most-watched multiplatform episode since November 2022.

Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, 9-1-1 is produced by 20th Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, John J. Gray, Brad Buecker, Kristen Reidel, Juan Carlos Coto and Lyndsey Beaulieu serve as executive producers. Minear also serves as showrunner.

Episode 100 is a crossover with ABC’s The Bachelor, centering on an emergency at the reality dating show’s mansion. The episode airs Thursday, April 4, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and streams the next day on Hulu.
