by Chase Thomas

9-1-1: Lone Star is here once again, Outsiders. Yes, Rob Lowe and company are back and it’s chilly, to say the least in Austin. The new episode and early-season arc of the program on FOX will deal with a dangerous, rough ice storm that rocks the area and the team. In a new trailer, fans see the team is on thin ice in the most literal sense.

In the trailer for 9-1-1: Lone Star, we hear the words”We’re not about to let you freeze to death here.” We see somebody in an ICU bed and it looks like things have really gone down for everyone on the team as they battle this freak storm that hits Austin hard.

There is already a lot of uncertainty at 126 and this situation does not help, especially with Owen on the outside looking in. Tim Minear told TV Insider, “it’s going to be a long way home. They’re going to have to figure it out.” He said that in reference to the current situation with the fire station and the group as a whole. Still, he noes that this can’t be the case for the long haul of the program.

Rob Lowe on ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’

This was a very different position for Rob Lowe to partake in. Remember, this is not the kind of role that Lowe has ever really explored in Hollywood. Recently, folks have come to know him for his comedy like in The Grinder and Parks & Recreation. However, Lowe has taken this role. on the program seriously. He has done his homework to ensure he plays the role well and right.

He told EW, “Unfortunately, California has had so many wild-fires and floods. And my home area of Santa Barbara has really been through it. Through that, I’ve not only had so many firsthand experiences with losing people in my community, I’ve also become very, very close with the [firefighters] in that area. And I did some training down here with the L.A. Fire Department.”

He has grown close to the community and those that work in the fire department in LA.

Rob Lowe concluded, “I even hosted a bunch of them [at my home] during the fires. There’s always somebody on set to tell you what equipment you would use and what you would wear. But for me, the most important thing is, What makes someone want to do that job? What do they love about it? What are the pitfalls?” He wanted to know all of it. He concluded, “What are their fears? I’m lucky to have actual friends to rely on for that sort of stuff.”

He wanted to know everything about doing their job and what it all entails in real life. You can watch 9-1-1: Lone Star on FOX.
