Fox has picked up two prime-time shows for new seasons, including its No. 1 drama series, “9-1-1.” Fox also renewed “The Resident,” meaning both shows will return for third seasons.
Both series have new episodes airing tonight on the network.
“9-1-1 redefined what a procedural series can be, consistently delivering edge-of-your-seat emergencies, mixed with emotional story arcs and incredible performances from one of the most powerful teams of actors on television,” said Michael Thorn, president of Entertainment for Fox Entertainment. “Kudos to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and their entire crew, as well as the amazing cast anchored by Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt for raising the bar week after week.”
The show has averaged 15.4 million total viewers, Fox said.
