Delivering one of the most keeping-you-on-the-edge-of-the-seat kinda finale on May 15, 9-1-1 season 6 wrapped, leaving the audience in thrall. The incredulous twists and turns made Station 118 in the Los Angeles Fire Department go all haywire.
However, it did not leave without another unprecedented crisis for the fans to ponder over. Amidst fans enjoying Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and Chimney’s (Kenneth Choi) engagement, Fox dropped a bomb that almost devastated the lives of 9-1-1 fans.
In an astonishing turn of events, after sharing the journey with 9-1-1 for six seasons, Fox decided to cancel the show and decided not to bring the show back for a seventh installment in the wake of certain issues concerning the licensing fees. Fortunately (read Divine Providence), ABC saved the day. The official network decided not to let the popular series go just like that.
That means, for the 2023-2024 season schedule, 9-1-1 will be moving to ABC. As a result, the seventh season will be airing on ABC from now on. Craig Erwich, president of Disney Television Group, states:
“Thanks to the creative drive of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, as well as the talented cast, 9-1-1 has been one of the most defining and original dramas on network television over the last six seasons and we are honoured to bring it to the esteemed group of series on ABC. It’s a privilege to keep 9-1-1 in the family with 20th Television producing, and we look forward to telling more heart-racing and uplifting stories about these beloved characters on our air.”
Despite 9-1-1 getting a new home, there is no clue in regards to its premiere date. But whatever the case, 9-1-1 season 7 will not premiere on ABC in October 2023. Here’s why.
9-1-1 Season 7 will not premiere on ABC in October 2023.
At the time of writing this article, ABC has not released an official premiere date. However, according to One Chicago Center, 9-1-1 season 7 is confirmed to not arrive on ABC until 2024. It is reported to skip this fall and make season 7 debut on the new network channel next year.
Following the fate of the other shows, the 9-1-1 season’s premiere was postponed owing to the writers’ and actors’ strike. Fortunately, the writers’ strike ended successfully in September after 148 long days. However, the negotiations between SAG-AFTRA, the actors’ union, and AMPTP are still ongoing.
9-1-1 has always delivered action-packed episodes that have gripped the hearts of the viewers from the very first minute. Name any natural disaster that you can think of, and the 118 team would have fought it without batting an eye. Interspersing a scintillating form of humor in between its riveting, action-packed stories, no one can do it better than 9-1-1. We expect the same from 9-1-1 season 7. In that case, the wait is always worth it in the end.
