Former Criminal Minds star Jennifer Love Hewitt is set to join the cast of 9-1-1 for its latest season.


In an interview with Access, the actress confirmed that she has been chosen for a role and will be appearing in the upcoming second season of the hit Fox series.

Hewitt was present at the Fox Upfronts in New York City in May 2018, when she expressed her excitement over landing the role of Maddie on the series.

The star shared how she was called by executive producer Ryan Murphy and was asked if she was interested in joining the cast.

Hewitt said that being called by Murphy was like being called by Santa Claus to be the head elf on Christmas. She said she immediately said yes.

The actress did not reveal much about what to expect for her character but she shared that she is playing Buck’s sister. Actor Oliver Stark plays the role of Buck.


Hewitt teased that fans would have to watch the episodes for the second season to see Maddie’s story unfold.

So far, two promos have been released for the show’s season two, which were first shown by Deadline.

The first one revealed Hewitt’s voice saying the show’s signature line, “9-1-1 what’s your emergency?”

After she answered the call at the emergency dispatch center, Los Angeles is attacked by an 8.2-magnitude earthquake.

Hewitt will be replacing Connie Britton, who played the 911 operator Abby Clark during the first season.


The second promo entitled Have You Ever Seen Anything Like This? showed the aftermath of the earthquake. Fans will have to wait for the season premiere for the story to unfold.

9-1-1 is known to have proven itself in the world of television with its average of 15 million viewers every episode.

The show quickly became the top 2 new drama series of the 2017-2019 season with ABC’s The Good Doctor at No. 1.

9-1-1 Season 2 will be airing its two-night season premiere on September 23, 2018, Sunday. Afterward, it will be airing on its regular period every Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
