“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.

Connie Britton stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday evening (March 13) and talked all about how she prepared for her role on Fox’s 9-1-1 and whether or not she would be a good first responder in real life.

“I have no idea. I would literally never ever be doing that job in real-life,” the 51-year-old actress told Seth. “There’s just no question about that in my mind. I don’t know how I would be. I honestly don’t know.”

“I can’t imagine what I would do if I’m instructing a person who is about to be attacked by a tiger, what they should be doing, no idea,” Connie insisted.
