No one can compete with 9-1-1 Lone Star season 5 when it comes to delivering weddings. Such finesse, such celebrations, as was featured in 9-1-1 Lone Star season 4. The fourth season was an infallible amalgamation of tragedy that involved Carlos Reyes (Rafael Silva) learning about his father’s death and romance, which included him pulling himself together for marrying TK 9-1-1 Lone Star Strand (Ronen Rubinstein). We have a new couple in the town, guys!

The newly declared husband and husband celebrated the occasion with their family and friends. Towards the end, Tommy Vega (Gina Torres) also switched out of her uniform to sing a rendition of “Being Alive.” Season 4 couldn’t have ended on a more perfect note (pun intended)!

Consequently, fans have been madly anticipating for the fifth season to arrive. Although we don’t have much concrete information regarding the premiere of season 5, fans can expect the following characters to not feature again in the upcoming fifth season of their favorite series.

9-1-1 Lone Star season 5: Characters who will not return in the new season

The ardent fans of the show, who have been following it since its pilot episode, will know Liv Tyler’s Michelle Blake, an EMS captain and paramedic. Gracing the screen for the very first episode of the series, 9-1-1 Lone Star was initially modeled around her character and the search to trace her missing sister.

Even though Tyler’s character had a significant connection with the overall series, she left the show after the first season. Ever since, she has not been recast. Her unprecedented departure came in the wake of COVID-19 travel restrictions. Tyler had to commute from London to Austin to shoot the series. Owing to the travel concerns during the pandemic, air commutes have been significantly impacted.

Although her character has not been recast, the paramedics of Lone Star have found themselves a new captain, Tommy Vega, played by Gina Torres. As a result, we don’t expect Michelle Blake’s character to return in the fifth season.

Gwyn Morgan

Another significant character who is not expected to make a return in the fifth season is Lisa Edelstein’s Gwyn Morgan. Playing the role of TK Strand’s mother and Owen Strand’s ex-wife in the debut episode of 9-1-1 Lone Star season 2, Edelstein had indeed been a prominent addition to the series cast. However, that was until her character met a tragic death in season 3, episode 8.

Her departure is featured as an unprecedented collision with a delivery cyclist, which causes instant death. Although the incident is not portrayed on-screen, the 9-1-1 call made by the culprit makes the scene even more tragic and lugubrious.

Edelstein’s decision to leave Gwyneth Morgan was caused by a slew of factors. Although Edelstein had been contributing to the series significantly for the first two seasons, her status as a series regular was not officially guaranteed. Not only that, but problems also arose owing to her residence in New York, which is quite far from Texas, the show’s setting. In the wake of such concerns, the decision to part ways with her character ensued. Under such circumstances, we don’t expect Edelstein to reprise her role again in the fifth season.
