US procedural 911: Lone Star was renewed for season 5, and 911 for a seventh season but the latter is moving broadcasters from FOX to ABC.
FOX used to own the 20th Television studios, but now has to pay a licensing fee to Disney to air the series and with broadcast ratings continuing to decline, FOX has decided to withdraw from further seasons of 911.
“It was an honor to be the founding network of 911 and we are grateful to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, along with Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Ryan Guzman and the rest of the cast and crew, and 20th Television for delivering such an impactful series at Fox,” the network said in a statement. “We wish them well after the conclusion of FOX’s final season of 911.”
“Thanks to the creative drive of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, as well as the talented cast, 911 has been one of network television’s most defining and original dramas for the past six seasons and we are honored to bring it to ABC’s esteemed series group,” said Craig Erwich, president of Disney Television Group. 911 family with the 20th Television production, and we look forward to telling more exciting and uplifting stories about these beloved characters on our broadcast.”
In Australia both series are shown on Monday evenings on Seven.
