9-1-1 Renewed for Season 8 at ABC

No emergency here: 9-1-1 has been renewed for Season 8 at ABC, TVLine has learned.

On March 14, the former Fox procedural made its ABC debut to 4.9 million total viewers (in Live+Same Day), which marked a 5% increase on the first responders drama’s previous average. The audience proceeded to grow each of the following two weeks, to 5.4 million and 5.5 million — with the latter tally veritably matching the show’s largest audience since its May 2021 Season 4 finale.
