by Suzanne Halliburton

Having a difficult time without your 9-1-1: Lone Star fix? That’s OK, we’ve got you covered.

On Thursday, the show’s social media team posted a gallery of photos of your favorite series. The caption? “Enjoy these #BTS pics of the 911: Lone Star crew to distract you from the agony of waiting for season 3!”

Here’s Your Assignment: Get Past New Year’s Day and You Can Watch a New 9-1-1: Lone Star

Your task is to make it through the holidays before you can see the premiere of 9-1-1: Lone Star season three. It’s set for a Jan. 3 debut. The show moves to 7 p.m. Central. That time slot usually is reserved for 9-1-1, the OG series. But instead, 9-1-1: Lone Star will help launch Fox’s new series The Cleaning Lady. TV Line reported that the two 9-1-1 shows would be on the same night, again, in March.

The behind-the-scenes photos come to you straight from the Los Angeles set of the show. Although 9-1-1: Lone Star is set in Austin, Tx, it’s all filmed and produced in California.

The photos posted Thursday feature Jim Parrack (Judd), Brian Michael Smith (Paul) and Natacha Karam (Marjan, aka Firefox). There’s also a snap of Sierra Aylina McClain, getting an extra dusting of powder. She plays Judd’s wife Grace, who is the team’s favorite dispatcher. There’s also a sweet photo of Raul Silva (Carlos) with Karam. The father-son firefighting combo of Rob Lowe (Owen Strand) and Ronen Rubinstein (TK) are MIA from the photo gallery.

But if you’d like a reminder of Owen and TK, 9-1-1: Lone Star presented the two of them as a gift on Black Friday:

Ice Will Be the Weather Guest Star in Season Three Premiere

Here’s what we know about season three, so far. The show will pull from real-life headlines that rocked Austin and the whole state of Texas for its Jan. 3 premiere. The episode is called The Big Chill. There’s always a grain of truth to the 9-1-1: Lone Star rescues. And previews for the premiere show our favorite men and women from the 126 involved in icy rescues. Back in February, Austin was hit by a blizzard and an ice storm over a near week-long period. Most of the city lost power and water, while the plunging temps blew up pipes.

The 9-1-1: Lone Star episode also will pick up the lingering details from season two. An arsonist burned down the 126 firehouse. And Billy Tyson, Owen’s nemesis, accepted the promotion that Strand turned down. Billy’s first act as deputy chief was to close the 126, scattering our favorite firefighters and first responders to other stations across Austin.

Getting back to the behind the scenes photos, 9-1-1: Lone Star fans loved seeing them. “No crew better than this,” one fan replied, with a heart emoji. “Thank you for the photos, literally miss them all so much.”
