Are you ready for a new “9-1-1” episode? Outsiders, we have a sneak peek into this coming Monday’s show and it’s looking tough.
The first-responder drama appears on Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, on Fox.
Well, let’s all take a few seconds and check out this view into the world of “9-1-1.” Angela Bassett and Peter Krause are among the stars of this show.
In “Peer Pressure,” the fifth episode from Season 5, has four separate storylines within it. One man looks like he’s overdone it while exercising. Another part shows a groundskeeper that gets cut by his chainsaw. Then, an explosion occurs in a retirement community.
Finally, May Grant, played by Corinne Massiah, receives a phone call from a suicidal teen.
There’s a lot of action in this week’s “9-1-1.” Besides Bassett, Krause, and Grant, other stars include Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and dispatchers are all shown handling different emergency situations. The show premiered in January 2018 and is still going strong.
“9-1-1” also has a spinoff, “9-1-1: Lone Star,” starring Rob Lowe, which has been on for two seasons. Its third season kicks off in 2022.
‘9-1-1’ Star Stark Talks About Portraying ‘Reality’ of Firefighters on Show
The show’s stars do their best to stay in shape and reflect the “reality” that firefighters face all the time.
Stark is included in this group, too.
Now he talked about this with AssignmentX. Specifically, Stark spoke on doing those firefighter scenes and also prepping for playing Buck.
Stark said that the actors did not do any structured, studio-arranged training.
The “9-1-1” actor also said, “But we all took it upon ourselves to do a little. For me, it was a lot more important to be able to train to do the job. There was a kind of divide. I could train for aesthetics, or I could train to be capable.”
Stark did follow the type of training, though, that firefighters would do.
“So I did a lot of carrying heavy stuff around, and a lot of running, basically,” he said. “It was difficult, but it was really rewarding.”
Stark is from England, so trying to have an American accent can be difficult to maintain.
He said that he’s gotten more comfortable with it.
“And there are still some days where I turn up, and I think, ‘Oh, God, I can’t do it,'” Stark said. “But it is something that I’ve put a lot of time into. Because for me, it’s a real pet peeve if I’m watching something and the accent is off, and it takes me out.”
Tune in to see him and the cast work against the clock.
