‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Gets to Work on Building New Fire Station

by Joe Rutland

While we are waiting for some new “9-1-1: Lone Star” episodes, the crew can be found getting busy in this short clip.

They are going in to help clean up a burned-out building.

It’s not just any building, though. It’s a fire station.

Take a look at what was shared on Tuesday.

In this clip, we see Julian Works play Mateo Chavez. Now, this character is interesting, Outsiders, as he’s severely dyslexic. Chavez also is a “Dreamer” who has to maintain his job or face deportation.

Rob Lowe stars as Firefighter Captain Owen Strand, who oversees the crew.

Other cast members on “9-1-1: Lone Star” include Ronen Rubenstein, Sierra McClain, Jim Parrack, and Brian Michael Smith. The show is based in Austin, Texas.

Outsiders might want to know when this show will return to the Fox lineup. It’s coming back but not until 2022. We’ll keep you posted.

‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Actor Understands About Character’s Drug Addiction Issues

There are many unique, beautiful characters who are part of the “9-1-1: Lone Star” cast.

Outsiders, we mentioned Rubenstein above. He plays T.K. Strand, who is Lowe’s son on the show, and he’s an opioid addict. Owen went to rescue T.K. after T.K. found out his boyfriend loved someone else. He was ready to propose but took a bunch of pills.

That was one reason Owen and T.K. moved to Austin and get out of New York City.

Some actors might shy away from this type of role. Not Rubenstein.

His reason? Well, the actor has some personal connection to this story.

Rubenstein, in an interview with Digital Spy, said, “Where I come from – in Staten Island, in New York – I think it’s one of the worse opioid crises in the country, if not in the world.”

He calls it sad and that it’s just gotten worse from the time he was a teenager.

“So, you know, I have a really close connection to that, and I have a very sort of brutal history with that as well,” Rubenstein said. “The fact that I get this incredible character, the biggest moment of my career, and we share that – it was very surreal.”

Lowe Doesn’t Mind Getting Into Unique Storylines For Fox First-Responder Show

When talking about the show, “9-1-1: Lone Star” actor Rob Lowe does not mind that there’s a little culture shock in it.

That includes an explosion the team deals with at a cow semen plant.

In a January 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lowe said, “Yes, (executive producer Ryan Murphy) kind of brings a new way of thinking into areas that are very, very entrenched in good-old-boy networks. That’s great for the storytelling. I kid you not, all of our stories are true.”
