Will Connie Britton Return for ‘9-1-1’ Season 2? Ryan Murphy Speaks Out!

Ryan Murphy is addressing Connie Britton‘s character’s fate on 9-1-1!

The series creator spoke out in an interview published on Wednesday (March 21), ahead of the season finale of the show’s first season, about Connie‘s involvement.

As previously reported, the actress only signed on to do the show for one year.

“We’re in the process of renegotiating her deal so she can come in and do a couple of episodes to keep her character alive. She really loves the cast and crew and she’s very hopeful that that can happen. And, in the interim, we will be casting other parts in that call center. We’re going after big names,” Ryan said.

As for whether the show’s first season finale will address her forthcoming scaled-back appearance? “Not really,” he revealed.

“Again, Connie and I are talking and she’s optimistic [that Abby will be back] in some capacity. I think the days of actors signing seven-year contracts and then not being able to do anything but that one particular show are over. Sarah Paulson was a regular on two shows of mine at once, and she went and did two movies in between. Actors have much more power and maneuverability than they had before. And I think that’s a good thing.”

The season finale airs on Wednesday night (March 21) on FOX at 9 PM EST.
