FOX has renewed the hit dramas 9-1-1 and The Resident for third seasons.
“9-1-1 redefined what a procedural series can be, consistently delivering edge-of-your-seat emergencies, mixed with emotional story arcs and incredible performances from one of the most powerful teams of actors on television,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for FOX. “Kudos to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and their entire crew, as well as the amazing cast anchored by Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt for raising the bar week after week.”
He added, “Amy Holden Jones, Todd Harthan and the team behind The Resident continue to showcase their brilliant storytelling, revealing both the triumphs and tragedy within the medical world. Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp and Bruce Greenwood, along with the stellar cast, have developed rich and compelling characters through their heartfelt performances. We want to thank our producing partners, 20th Century Fox Television, who have steered these two extraordinary series. Both 9-1-1 and The Resident have many, many more stories to tell and we can’t wait to deliver them to fans next season.”
9-1-1, averaging 15.4 million total viewers, is FOX’s number one drama and ranks among the season’s top ten entertainment programs among adults 18 to 49 and adults 18 to 34 across all broadcast and cable networks. The Resident averages 11 million total viewers and ranks among the season’s top 20 broadcast dramas among young adults and teens.
