Is Lisa Edelstein Leaving 9-1-1: Lone Star?

Yes, Lisa Edelstein is leaving ‘9-1-1: Lone Star.’ Gwyn is indeed dead, and the character’s death paves the way for Edelstein’s exit from the show. “Life is never one thing. And it’s relentless. I wanted Gwyn’s death to happen the way these sometimes do — out of the blue and without fanfare,” showrunner Tim Minear told Variety. The eighth episode of the season will mark the end of Edelstein’s time in the show as the appealing and beloved Gwyn. Although Edelstein hasn’t yet released a statement regarding her exit, we can expect the same upon the broadcast of her last episode of the show.

According to Minear, Gwyn’s death will have severe consequences in her son T.K.’s life. “It [Gwyn’s death] comes at a moment for TK when things are good. He and Carlos are at the next level. His fire family has been reunited. His mother’s death is a game changer for TK. But also for Owen and Carlos. The way TK deals with this loss and grief will tell us a lot about where he is and where he came from. And Owen will have his own reckoning with his past with Gwyn,” he added to Variety. Thus, we can expect Gwyn’s death to be an influential factor in the upcoming episodes of the show.

Edelstein was part of the casts of renowned shows like ‘House,’ ‘The Kominsky Method,’ and ‘The Good Doctor.’ Even though the actress is exiting ‘9-1-1: Lone Star,’ we can expect Edelstein to continue astonishing us with her upcoming acting performances.
