‘9-1-1’ Spinoff Starring Rob Lowe, ‘9-1-1: Lone Star,’ Coming To Fox

The “9-1-1″ universe is expanding.

Fox has greenlit a spinoff series of the network’s top-performing drama that will star Rob Lowe, the network announced Sunday, ahead of its Upfront presentation on Monday. “9-1-1: Lone Star” will debut during the 2019-20 television season.

The spinoff will move the action to Austin, Texas, where a sophisticated New York cop (Lowe), who relocates to the Lone Star state along with his son, must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.

“The beauty of having a hit drama like ‘9-1-1’ from the genius minds of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear is it allows you to explore thrilling stories as told through an array of distinctive characters,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox Entertainment. “In ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’, they’ve given us a special opportunity to expand the franchise into new territory — literally and figuratively — and we’re thrilled to have the incomparable Rob Lowe headline this new iteration when it joins our schedule next season.”
