911 AKA 9-1-1 Season 6 May 15, 2023 Episode 18 Is The Finale. Season 7 Is Happening
Hey, “9-1-1” fans. We hope you guys totally enjoyed the hell out of episode 18 ,tonight, especially since it was indeed the finale episode for 9-1-1’s current season 6. That’s right, guys. Episode 18 wrapped up this season 6. That means you guys will have to wait a pretty good while before you see another new episode of 9-1-1.
However, that is the good news because we can officially tell you that 9-1-1 has been renewed for a brand new season 7. So, you will get to see a new episode of it at some point in the future. The 9-1-1 season 7 renewal was an extremely bumpy renewal process. In fact, it was so bumpy that it’s actually switching networks to make it happen!
Yep, there’s a lot to unpack here. According to the Deadline.com people, FOX actually canceled 9-1-1 because it’s just too friggin expensive for them right now.
Yes, 9-1-1 is FOX’s top-rated and most-watched series. However, that made it one of their most priciest shows, especially since it includes big-name stars like Oscar nominated actors like Angela Bassett and Peter Krause. Also, FOX doesn’t actually own the series. It’s owned by 20th TV.
So, while FOX thinks 9-1-1 is too expensive, the Disney-owned ABC network doesn’t seem to think so. According to Deadline.com, the ABC people gladly decided to take 9-1-1 of of FOX’s hands. So, 9-1-1 will indeed be back for a brand new season 7 over on ABC. FOX is ,however, holding onto the 9-1-1 spinoff show titled: 9-1-1: Lone Star. It got renewed for a new season 5 over at FOX.
FOX did make a nice statement about parting with 9-1-1 saying, “It has been an honor to be the founding network of 9-1-1 and we are grateful to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, together with Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Ryan Guzman and the rest of the cast and crew, and 20th Television for delivering such an impactful series to Fox. We wish them well after 9-1-1’s final Fox season concludes.”
The president of Disney Television Group Craig Erwich made a nice statement about the 9-1-1 pickup from FOX saying, “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 honored 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.”
Deadline.com mentioned that 9-1-1 was now costing FOX $9 or $10 million dollars an episode. So, that was apparently just too much for them, but it was very interesting to learn just how expensive these shows can actually get.
According to the LIVE Nielsen ratings, 9-1-1 season 6 averaged 4.720 million LIVE viewers per episode, and a 0.59 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographics.
