by Chase Thomas

We’re just a few days away from the latest 9-1-1: Lone Star season. Yes, Outsiders, on January 3 season. 3of the FOX hit show starring Rob Lowe will return. With the return date vast approaching, it’s fair for fans of the program to wonder where the show will pick up and what to expect early on. Well, that first return episode is entitled “The Big Chill” which might give you a hint as to where the show will begin in 2022. What fans will find is that ‘artic cold front’ has hit Austin and messed everything up in a major way.

Crazy chilly weather will not be the only issue facing Rob Lowe’s crew, but it will be the first major issue. Outside of the crazy cold front on the horizon, fans don’t know what other kinds of natural disasters await the 126ers.

A lot of attention, naturally, is drawn to Lowe on the program. He is the star of 9-1-1: Lone Star. However, another big get for the show even at the time was Liv Tyler. He told EW, “We were so excited to get Liv. When that idea came up we were really pumped. It felt really fresh. There are some actors that you just know are going to make you more interesting when they stand next to you and Liv’s one of those people. It’s just a function of her energy and who she is. She’s very unique. She’s gorgeous in a very unique way.”

That’s high praise from Lowe. Tyler brought something different to 9-1-1: Lone Star. She is a fresh character and actor for the program and meshes very well.

He continued, “She’s got a body of work behind her that’s kind of iconic, and weird, and extraordinary and you also don’t see her all the time. It’s been great. It’s a really good part for her because it’s really different from anything you’ve seen her do before. She plays a very focused, super-capable paramedic. It’s an unbelievably physical role for her so her natural ethereal, otherworldly qualities that make her who she is are really cool because you don’t really see that mixed with this super practical, go-getter girl.”

Liv Tyler is a veteran in Hollywood. She’s worked in a variety of roles, perhaps most notably on The Leftovers. Her character in that HBO drama is very different from the character she plays on this show. It’s far more intense than the role she had on the HBO drama. However, she has shown while working on 9-1-1: Lone Star that she is quite the versatile actor and Rob Lowe noticed and is thrilled to work with her.
