Liv Tyler To Exit Fox's '9-1-1 Lone Star'

Liv Tyler will not be back as Michelle Blake on Fox’s 9-1-1 Lone Star when it returns for its second season.

Deadline reports that the 43-year-old actress will not be returning due to the circumstances related to family and travel during the pandemic.

If you haven’t seen the series, Liv‘s Michelle Blake was a paramedic Emergency Medical Services captain, and the role will not be recast as there is a possibility she could return in the future.

“What a thrill it was having a movie star of Liv Tyler’s stature to help us launch the first season of 911: Lone Star,” series co-creator, executive producer and showrunner Tim Minear shared about Liv‘s departure.

He added, “We loved working with Liv and will be forever indebted to her for her haunting, powerful portrayal of Michelle Blake. While we were able to tell a complete chapter in Michelle’s story, as with Connie Britton on our mothership, we also feel like there are more stories to be told. The door here will always be open for a return.”

9-1-1: Lone Star centered on a New York firefighter (Rob Lowe) who, along with his son, re-locates to Austin, and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable while solving the problems in his own life.

The show, plus flagship, 9-1-1, were both renewed for new seasons back in April.
