Fox’s first responder drama, “9-1-1,” begins airing its third season tonight, but, soon enough, there will be another show joining its universe. A new spinoff show, titled “9-1-1: Lone Star,” is on the way, and it starts in just a few months.

The series, which is set in Austin, Texas, has an official premiere date set, and it’s right at the start of 2020: It debuts on Jan. 19, right after the NFC Championship Game.

The new Fox show stars Rob Lowe (“Parks and Recreation”) as Owen Strand, “a sophisticated New York firefighter who, along with his son, re-locates to Austin, and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life,” according to Deadline.

Ronen Rubinstein (“Dead of Summer”) will play his son, TK Strand, while Sierra McClain (“Empire”) will play 9-1-1 call center operator Grace Ryder and the wife of firefighter Judd Ryder, portrayed by Jim Parrack (“True Blood”). The cast also includes Liv Tyler, who stars as chief paramedic Michelle Blake.

“The beauty of having a hit drama like ‘9-1-1’ from the genius minds of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear is it allows you to explore thrilling stories as told through an array of distinctive characters,” Michael Thorn, president of entertainment at Fox, said when the spinoff was first announced in May, according to TVLine.

Thorn continued: “In ‘9-1-1: Lone Star,’ they’ve given us a special opportunity to expand the franchise into new territory — literally and figuratively — and we’re thrilled to have the incomparable Rob Lowe headline this new iteration when it joins our schedule next season.”
