“9-1-1, what is your emergency?” As is heard at the beginning of this first trailer for Season 3 of Fox’s first-responders drama, an emergency is the absence of choice. And the unlucky souls who are enjoying an L.A. beach day when a tsunami hits have one choice.
The clip for 9-1-1 sets the scene with parents and kids diggin’ the rays, gettin’ wet, and generally havin’ a good ol’ time on and around the Santa Monica Pier. But when the water suddenly begins to rush away from the shoreline, things turn ugly in a hurry.
And it’s all set to the ominous tones of a “Cruel Summer” cover.
Well, at least we don’t any shark attacks — including the asphalt type portrayed in the show’s Season 2B trailer. Regardless, it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature.
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear, the procedural explores the high-pressure experiences of police officers, firefighters, and dispatchers who are thrust into frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt star, with Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Rockmond Dunbar and Ryan Guzman in series-regular roles.
The third season of 9-1-1 premieres are 8 p.m. Monday, September 23.
