Ryan Murphy's '911' Renewed for Season 2!

911 is coming back for another season!

The Ryan Murphy-produced Fox series was given an early second season renewal after airing only two episodes of its first season as of Tuesday (January 16), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which co-stars Peter Krause, Connie Britton and Angela Bassett, follows the work and home lives of emergency responders.

The series premiere episode that debuted earlier in January bested the return of The X-Files, and ranked as the highest-rated Big Four premiere in three months.

“With a bold concept, award-winning stars and a flawless execution, Ryan, Brad [Falchuk] and Tim [Minear] have done it again. They have tapped into the cultural zeitgeist and reimagined the procedural as only they could, bringing it to life with a dream team of actors led by Angela, Peter and Connie. This is storytelling at its best and we’re so pleased that it’s resonated with our audience. We’d like to thank everyone involved with this production for their stellar work, and we look forward to another thrilling season of 911,” Fox execs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said.

'Black Panther' Trailer Premieres During National Championship - Watch Now!

Did you see the brand-new Black Panther footage that aired during the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship?

The trailer for the Marvel Studios flick dropped during the game between Alabama and Georgia, following Kendrick Lamar‘s halftime show performance.

It features Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa’s (aka Black Panther) enemies Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) as they try to bring him down as the King of Wakanda.

Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

The Ryan Coogler-directed film also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker.

Kendrick is producing the soundtrack.

Black Panther is set to hit theaters on February 16. Watch the trailer below!

Ryan Murphy Reveals How His Son's Medical Emergency Inspired '9-1-1' Series

Ryan Murphy is opening up about how a medical emergency that his infant son had inspired his new show 9-1-1.

The television producer appeared on the Fox panel at the 2018 Winter TCA Tour on Thursday afternoon (January 4) at The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, Calif.

Ryan was joined by the show’s stars Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, Peter Krause, Aisha Hinds, Oliver Stark, and Rockmond Dunbar, along with co-creators Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall, and director Bradley Buecker.

“It was a really traumatic experience. I had a newborn baby. My son Ford was 11 months old and in the middle of the night stopped breathing,” Ryan said (via People). “We called 911. Obviously we were in panic and we were doing CPR and they showed up at 2 a.m. in the morning. There were 4 responders. They were incredibly calm and nurturing. They forced me to leave the room. They brought him back to life.”

“They only allowed one parent to ride with the child in the ambulance, so my husband David went and I stayed with our other one upstairs. The officers and responders stayed to get a report from me I had the experience if sitting with them and talking to them. They really kind of talked me off the ledge,” he added.
