Following a huge success of the parent show, Fox introduced a spin-off titled '9-1-1: Lone Star,' starring Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler, premiering on 19th January 2020.
Michael Thorn, Fox's entertainment president, said in a statement:
9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star are truly two of the strongest and most thrilling dramas on broadcast television, as well as being centerpieces for FOX Entertainment. Creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, as well as their incredible teams of writers, directors, casts and entire crews, make jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat magic in every episode.
Thorn continued, "From Los Angeles earthquakes and tsunamis to Texas-sized tornados and bucking broncos, both shows deliver incredible spectacle with strong, identifiable characters you care about week to week. We eagerly look forward to many more thrilling rescues in both series, which help honor this country's brave first responders, as well as those around the world."

Meanwhile, Rotten Tomatoes provided an approval rating of 70% for 9-1-1 season one and the perfect 100% for season two. The general consensus reads: "9-1-1 occasionally veers into melodrama, but is redeemed with a top-tier cast, adrenaline-pumping action, and a dash of trashy camp that pushes the show into addictive guilty pleasure territory."
9-1-1 airs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox.
