Tonight Fox unveiled the first promo for 9-1-1 season 5, and it gives you a pretty good idea of what the next big crisis will be.
Let’s say that on this relaunch we will see the city of Los Angeles in total darkness. A lot of the crises we’ve seen hyped up on the show are pretty immediate — take a natural disaster, for example. These are things that can instantly kill countless people. A city blackout can be just as dangerous (if not more so), but it’s the kind of thing that looks and feels a little different. The longer it lingers, the worse it can get. You run the risk of major traffic problems, panic in the streets and the inability of first responders to do their job.
Promotion below Absolutely makes us excited, but also curious how the show will film this. Making television in the middle of the night becomes difficult; you have to be able to make it feel realistic, while still showing the audience what’s going on. It can’t be one of those fight scenes on Game of Thrones where you often do not see what is happening.
9-1-1 season 5 will air this fall on Monday nights; the lonely star spin-off will eventually happen too, but you’ll be waiting a while to see that. We’re sure the flagship premiere will clear up some of the main concerns from the finale, but will also spark some new ones. (Remember, the blackout crisis is likely to happen at the end of the premiere rather than at the beginning — here’s what we’ve seen with similar ones over the years.)
