The first responder drama 9-1-1 begins its third season Monday nights on Fox with most of its characters in a good place. Angela Bassett’s LAPD Sergeant Athena Grant married her fire captain beau Bobby Nash (Peter Krause) at the end of Season 2, with her two teen children from her first marriage in attendance. 9-1-1 being a show about people in crisis, everybody’s cheerful mood may not make it through the first episode. However, Bassett’s positive attitude seems likely to last much longer. Also an executive producer on 9-1-1, Bassett (who was an Oscar nominee for her portrayal of Tina […]Read On »

9-1-1, Fox Network’s drama about first responders in Los Angeles, starts its second season Monday nights with a rumble and a bang.

On Fox Network’s 9-1-1, currently in its first season on Wednesday nights and already renewed for a second, we follow police officers and firefighters and the emergency call center that tells them where the newest crisis is happening.

Michael is married to police officer Athena Grant, played by Angela Bassett, who is also one of 9-1-1’s executive producers. The marriage is under some strain, to put it mildly. Michael has just come out relatively late in life as gay and is in a […]Read On »
