9-1-1: Lone Star Season 4 - What We Know So Far

"9-1-1: Lone Star" is a classic fish-out-of-water story -– that is, if instead of a fish, it is a firefighter captain, and instead of water, it is a move from New York City to Texas. Following the exploits of Owen Strand (Rob Lowe), "9-1-1: Lone Star" is a popular show that originally premiered in January 2020 and is created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk of "American Horror Story" fame. Strand is a veteran firefighter that was present during the terrorist attack on New York City, which not only sees him eventually diagnosed with lung cancer, but also suffering the entire loss of his firehouse and coworkers. Having rebuilt his precinct, his skills are later required in Texas as he does the same, thus kicking off the story of "9-1-1: Lone Star."

Rebuilding a fresh team that starts with his son T.K. (Ronen Rubinstein), Strand assembles a diverse team of firefighters and paramedics, as well as police officer allies. Over three seasons, the Austin-based team of emergency personal deals with the standard fare of injuries and fires, but also distinctly Texan events like rattlesnake bites, errant and enraged bulls, and powerful tornadoes that levy untold destruction. These events are a far cry from the situations Strand was used to dealing with before his move to Texas, and Season 3 ends with Strand speaking with a doctor about his cancer prognosis, the dissolution of the firehouse, and T.K.'s engagement, so there are definitely some stories that need to be resolved, and luckily, it looks like we will get to see their conclusions.

What do we know about Season 4 of 9-1-1: Lone Star?

As reported by Variety, it has now has been confirmed that there will indeed be more episodes on the horizon with a Season 4. Currently, "9-1-1: Lone Star" earns around 7.5 million viewers on the Nielsen Live+7 ratings, which makes the show one of the most-watched current broadcast television shows. Considering this, it makes perfect sense as to why "9-1-1: Lone Star" would be quickly greenlit for an additional season. Season 3 ended in May 2022, and not even a month passed before news of its continuation began to spread. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation as to when Season 4 might start, nor an official cast roster, but there is a good chance that most of the actors will be returning.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series co-creator Tim Minear was asked about what is in store for Season 4, and he replied, "I'm very interested in finding a way to just drill down into everybody's stories more. It's quite a challenge when you have this many characters, and you're not just telling a straight-ahead drama. There have been a few episodes this year that have been light on cases, that have sort of more character scenes. But that's really not the show, right?" He continued, "But these cases take up sometimes a third or half of your 44 minutes of screen time. It's just always a challenge to try to find a way to advance everybody's stories and tell the procedural emergency stories at the same time."

With this statement in mind, it seems as if "9-1-1: Lone Star" will continue to expound on the character-driven stories of the hit show.
