The sister show to Fox’s 9-1-1, 9-1-1: Lone Star is back with series lead Rob Lowe.

9-1-1: Lone Star was created by the same trio behind 9-1-1 — Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and Ryan Murphy. Yes, that Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, American Horror Story, American Crime Story and plenty more TV series you’ve binged in recent years, easily making him one of the busiest and most prolific men in TV.

But enough preamble, here’s everything we know about 9-1-1: Lone Star season 3

It's finale time for 9-1-1: Lone Star. After a season where there have been more than a few ups and downs in the personal lives of each of the characters, it looks like the series will end this latest chapter with quite the roller coaster ride for the crew professionally.

"Strand and the 126 come together when one of their own is trapped after a building explosion. Owen reflects on his 9/11 experience. T.K. and Carlos come to a decision. Tommy and Julius decide on their future."
