9-1-1 Lone Star has promoted two young actors to series regulars ahead of its mid-season return in 2022. The two sisters weren’t on the show for a while in order to film Disney’s Peter Pan, but now they’re back, and this time, they’re regulars.

The two girls, Kelsey & Skyler Yates, are an important part of 9-1-1-: Lone Star. Their promotion was to an adorable new tweet from their talent agency.

“After a break to film Disney’s Peter Pan, Kelsey & Skyler Yates are returning to Lonestar. We are extremely excited to announce that these superstars are now series regulars on Fox’s 9-1-1: Lonestar! These girls are doing big things and we are incredibly proud!”

Skyler Yates plays Evie Vega and Kelsey Yates plays Isabella Vega. The two are clearly going to get a lot more screentime now, which is exciting for fans of the Vega family.

Here’s Where we Left the Characters at the End of ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Season 2

Fans are pumped that the 9-1-1 spinoff set in Austin, Texas is finally coming back. There’s plenty of plans in the works for season 3 including an episode that commemorates 9/11. 9-1-1: Lone Star season 2 ended months ago now, so here’s a refresher before the show starts back up again.

First, the season finale saw Station 126 deal with the destruction of the firehouse. The finale, Dust to Dust saw the firehouse rendered inoperable and every character at the firehouse sent to work in different teams.

Mateo’s re-assignment was particularly rough. He’s now surrounded by small-minded people who make degrading and hateful comments towards him. Hopefully, at the start of season 3, he’s found a less terrible environment. Once the station opens back up, he’ll no longer be a probie.

After Tommy’s husband died, it was revealed that she would not return to her job. In the finale, she confided in Judd and Grace and told them that her kids really needed her. But then, when the storm hit, she fell back in love with the work she does and decided to stay on.

Chief Radford retired and offered the position to Owen, who surprised fans when he declined. Billy Tyson also returned as deputy chief and tried to close station 126 permanently. Hopefully, for the sake of the relocated fighters, they find a way around that. He claimed the move was because of “budget constraints” but Owen still gave him a good, satisfying punch.

It’s unlikely that his plan to permanently close the station will actually be successful. It’s hard to imagine 9-1-1: Lone Star without it.

9-1-1: Lone Star comes back on Monday, January 3rd at 8 pm on Fox with most major cast members returning to their roles. Meanwhile, 9-1-1 is currently airing and has done
