9-1-1 Season 2 is already a go, but the first responder series is planning to extend its time even further, with a five-season plan in place and talks of a spinoff under way:
Fox Chief Dana Walden: “I’m shocked that show did so well. I’ve had a couple of network experiences where things weren’t as broad, things didn’t catch on so quickly. The fact that it was always so consistent and would always grow its number, I really give credit to Dana and the marketing team. I think they did a tremendous job. It’s a big hit. We’re talking about spin-offs already.”

Ryan Murphy: We have a five-year plan, we’re in it to win it. There’s talk of spinoff already, so the fact that it went from such an intimate collaboration with my boss, Dana, to a success story makes me happy and proud for everybody because we all really rolled up our sleeves and dug in on it so that we could get it on the air in January.
You mentioned a potential 9-1-1 spinoff. What will it be about?
Murphy: Well, I don’t know. We’ve been talking about it but we haven’t figured that out. It’s something that we probably wouldn’t do for another year, but there’s been mention of it. For me at least, the network game has been hard to crack, so I’m pretty thrilled with the fact that it has proven to be successful enough that there’s been mention of that at Fox, like what would you do and what would it be. I don’t know what the spinoff would be, but we’re talking about it.
