In a surprising twist, the Fox television network, opted not to renew its highest-rated scripted series, 9-1-1which will air the finale of the sixth season on May 15.
However, the fandom of the drama series will not have to worry about the fate of 9-1-1Well, according to Deadline reports, season 7 will move to ABC. The move to a new broadcast house is apparently proving relatively easy, as the show Ryan MurphyBrad Falchuk y Tim Minear It is produced by 20th Television, a production company that, like ABC Networks, is owned by The Walt Disney Company.
The spinoff of 9-1-1titled 9-1-1: Lone Starit was renewed to a season 5 by Fox and will continue to be broadcast by said TV network
Fox declares in an official statement the following:
“It has been an honor to be the founding network of 9-1-1 and we are grateful to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, along with Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Ryan Guzman and the rest of the cast and crew, and 20th Television for delivering such an impactful series to Fox. We wish them the very best after the final season of 9-1-1 on Fox concludes.”
Deadline’s report reveals that Fox’s decision was “a financial decision”. Given that, “6 seasons later, 9-1-1 remains the network’s highest-rated scripted series among adults 18-49 and its most-watched series overall, but it’s also its most expensive at around $9 million to $100,000. 10 million per episode.”
But why is it that 9-1-1 hasn’t been renewed by Fox and its spinoff yes? The source gives a very important piece of information by reminding us that the original series was developed and ordered to series under a different economic model when the Fox network and what was formerly known as 20th Century Fox TV were part of the same company, prior to the acquisition of Fox by Disney part; Lone Star for its part, it was ordered to series after 20th Television became part of Disney.
The cast of 9-1-1 is led by Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Oliver Stark, Kenneth Choi, Aisha Hinds, Ryan Guzmán, Corinne Massiah, Marcanthonee Jon Reisy Gavin McHugh.
“On ABC Season 7, 9-1-1 will continue to explore the high-pressure experiences of first responders, including police officers, firefighters and dispatchers, who find themselves in the most terrifying, shocking and heartbreaking situations.”
