The show has been picked up for the 2022-2023 broadcast season. Moreover, it is important to note that the production team has even delivered new seasons after a short gap of only four months. A case in point is the fifth season, which was announced in May 2021 and hit the screens in September 2021. So, if the team follows the same production schedule, we can expect ‘9-1-1’ season 6 to release in September 2022.
9-1-1 Season 6 Cast: Who can be in it?
A majority of the main cast members may reprise their roles for the upcoming season. This means we may see Angela Bassett (Anthena Grant-Nash), Peter Krause (Bobby Nash), Oliver Stark (Evan ‘Buck’ Buckley), Aisha Hinds (Henrietta ‘Hen’ Wilson), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Maddie Kendall), Ryan Guzman (Eddie Diaz), and Kenneth Choi (Howie ‘Chimney’ Han) in action again.
Other cast members who play pivotal roles might return for the show’s sixth edition as well. This includes Corinne Massiah (May Grant), Marcanthonee Reis (Harry Grant), Arielle Kebbel (Lucy), Tracie Thoms (Karen), Anirudh Pisharody (Ravi), Megan West (Taylor), and Gavin McHugh (Christopher Diaz).
Rockmond Dunbar (Michael Grant) is not expected to return after the actor’s departure from the show. Vanessa Williams (Claudette) and Bryce Durfee (Jonah) may also not be a part of season 6 since Claudette dies and Jonah is arrested. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of new characters being introduced into the storyline. If that happens, we may see a few fresh faces in the cast lineup.
9-1-1 Season 6 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 5, the Station 118 squad is called upon to help different sets of people in dangerous situations. Nevertheless, they have to continue dealing with their personal issues and make life-changing decisions. Eddie even leaves Station 118 for the sake of Christopher and confronts his traumatic past. In the season finale, Maddie thinks about making a return to work after a significant amount of break. On the other hand, May has to decide whether she wants to return to her higher studies after leaving her dispatcher job. At the same time, Lucy’s presence affects Buck and Taylor’s relationship.
Season 6 is likely to pick up after the events of the fifth round’s finale. We might see members of the 118 tackling another set of life-threatening situations and saving the lives of many helpless people. Moreover, Maddie is likely to get back on the field after a hiatus.
