Ryan Murphy’s first-responder drama returns to Fox Sept. 20

“9-1-1” stars Angela Bassett as Athena Grant; Peter Krause as Bobby Nash; Jennifer Love Hewitt as Maddie Kendall; Oliver Stark as Evan “Buck” Buckley; Kenneth Choi as Howie “Chimney” Han; Aisha Hinds as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson; Ryan Guzman as Eddie Diaz; Rockmond Dunbar as Michael Grant; Corinne Massiah as May Grant; Marcanthonee Jon Reis as Harry Grant; Gavin McHugh as Christopher Diaz.

“9-1-1” showrunner Tim Minear told TheWrap back in May, following the Season 4 finale, that Maddie’s postpartum depression was going to be a major plot point in this fall’s Season 5.

“I thought that postpartum depression was important. It was something I didn’t want to ignore. It is a way, with somebody like [Jennifer Love Hewitt] who’s such an empathetic kind of performer, that she can really help put these kind of stories over for the audience in a way that doesn’t feel exploitative and it feels very relatable,” Minear said. “So it was a way for us to complicate their relationship. And we’re not just going to glance at it. We’re going to try address it in such a way that it’s going to complicate the show going forward at the beginning of Season 5. It’s not just going to go away, let’s put it that way.”

The Season 5 premiere episode of “9-1-1” airs Monday, Sept. 20 at 8/7c on Fox.
