'9-1-1' Just Teased a Surprising TV CrossoverChris Willard - ABC

In a twist no one ever saw coming, it looks like the folks of Station 118 will be answering a call at a well-known residence on ABC.

9-1-1 premiered season 7 on the network on March 14, and now the procedural drama is setting up for their most surprising emergency yet. According to a report from People on March 16, 9-1-1 will be teaming up with the hit Bachelor Nation franchise for a crossover that's set to air on April 4 at 8 p.m. ET. While details are sparse, Oliver Stark (who plays Evan "Buck" Buckley) revealed to the outlet ahead of the show's premiere that fans will be treated to a "crossover of sorts."

"There's a really fun emergency, and it's not necessarily the biggest in terms of spectacle, but in the fifth episode of the season, there's one that kind of touches base with another ABC show," he teased. "So I'm really excited for that just because I think it will be a good watch for the audience... It's not a direct crossover, but there's a feel of it."

If that wasn't enough, fans got a taste of what's to come thanks to a surprise trailer (featuring recent Bachelor Joey Graziadei and host Jesse Palmer) dropping on Instagram the day The Bachelor season finale aired on March 25, with Buck and Howard "Chimney" Han (Kenneth Choi) appearing on the scene. "The most shocking and dramatic 9-1-1 call the 118 has ever gotten. 👀🌹," read the official caption. "Don’t miss a moment on April 4 following Thursday’s 3-part premiere conclusion!"

When fans discovered the surprise collaboration between the procedural drama and hit reality show, they immediately reveled in excitement.

"The most unexpected crossover! 😂 I can’t waitttt," one person wrote in the comments. "I’m so confused but so here for it!!!!!!!" another exclaimed. "TWO OF MY FAV SHOWS IN ONE AHHHHHH," a different viewer rejoiced.

Although there was speculation that the crossover would be with fellow ABC procedural Grey's Anatomy or Station 19, teaming up with the Bachelor universe is certainly a fun surprise. It's unclear what the exact crisis will be, but People noted one particular clue as to what the story line could entail.

In an exclusive photo obtained by the site, fans saw an ambulance bearing the 118 number parked in front of the iconic Bachelor Mansion, with the driveway looking all wet. Given how the show is famous for hosing off the driveway so it glistens on the first night of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, there's potential for one of the characters to make an appearance for the night of introductions. Plus, the trailer indicates some of the contestants appear interested in Buck, who is single at the moment on 9-1-1. Maybe he could be handing out a rose?

While this is a unique instance of worlds colliding, it's not the only time 9-1-1 has done a crossover. Back in 2021 (when the drama was still on Fox), the show and its spinoff, 9-1-1: Lone Star teamed up. Station 118 came to Texas to help Station 126 contain wildfires occurring all over the state.

Needless to say, our interests are piqued by this upcoming collaboration!
