‘9-1-1’ Canceled By Fox; Moving To ABC For Season 7

Fox has chosen not to renew its top-rated scripted show, 9-1-1, which is produced by 20th Television. However, Disney’s ABC has picked up the show for season 7 instead.

“9-1-1” is an American procedural drama television series created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: police officers, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers. The series premiered on January 3, 2018, originally on Fox.

The forthcoming Season 6 finale on May 15 will mark the final episode of 9-1-1 on Fox. Deadline reports that the network’s decision to cancel the show was financially driven. Although 9-1-1 is Fox’s most viewed series, it is also its costliest, with each episode carrying a price tag of around $9 million to $10 million.

Craig Erwich, president, Disney Television Group said in a statement:

“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.”

Past seasons of ‘9-1-1’ can be streamed on Hulu, while they are exclusively available on Disney+ in numerous countries, including the UK.
