‘9-1-1’: Here’s What Peter Krause Plans to Do After Show Ends

by Joe Rutland

Actor Peter Krause has made a name for himself on “9-1-1” and has some thoughts on his plans after the show ends its run.

Krause, in a 2019 interview with Minneapolis St. Paul, said doing television work is enjoyable. He’s been playing fireman Bobby Nash on this show.

“I really enjoy doing television series, and I’ve made a point to play different characters,” Krause said when asked about his future once the show goes off the air. “I’ve greatly enjoyed ‘9-1-1’, which is more of an action series than I’ve ever done. But in terms of what’s next, you know, I wouldn’t mind doing some straight-up comedy.” 

That led to a question about what type of show or role he would like. Krause happened to refer the interviewer to a show which, actually, was based in Minneapolis, Minn.

“Not necessarily like Ted Baxter in ‘Mary Tyler Moore’, but I’ve always thought it would be fun to play like a, you know, goofy weatherman,” Krause said.

 “9-1-1” returns to Fox for its fifth season at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, on Sept. 20. Besides Krause, other stars on the show include Angela Bassett, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Rockmond Dunbar. Its spin-off, “9-1-1: Lone Star,” is set to come back for a third season as Fox renewed the series back in May.

While “9-1-1” is set in Los Angeles, “9-1-1: Lone Star” is set in Texas.

Will ‘9-1-1’ Have Another Crossover Episode Coming Up This Season?

Obviously, having two shows in the “9-1-1” franchise on Fox allows for things like crossover episodes to happen.

So the question becomes will there be another one this season?

“I do think that there is probably in a crossover in the future there,” showrunner Tim Minear told TVInsider. Minear would be the person to know as he’s the showrunner for both shows.

In February, some “9-1-1” characters helped “Lone Star” deal with a massive wildfire that threatened areas west of Austin. In an episode called “Hold the Line”, they also had to deal with a missing boy and a helicopter crash. Hen (Hinds), Buck (Stark), and Eddie (Ryan Guzman) ended up leaving Los Angeles for the trip to Texas.

When asked if they have an idea how a crossover might look down the road, Minear would not commit to anything just yet.

“It’s too soon to answer that,” Minear said. He is “looking forward to seeing other characters get to cross paths” because “those different combinations are very exciting.”

“I don’t close the door on anything,” Minear said. “Ask my writing staff. I’ll change my mind three seconds before we start shooting.”

Outsiders that love either one or both shows will have to just “stay tuned” for future crossovers in the “9-1-1” franchise.
