First responder drama “9-1-1” is one of the latest on an ever-growing list of TV series produced by Ryan Murphy. The series’ cast features some names likely recognizable to audiences as well, like Angela Bassett, who portrays an LAPD cop, or Connie Britton as a 9-1-1 phone line operator.
“9-1-1” is currently in its fifth season, and the longer it continues, the more the series is theoretically in danger of losing some of its key players. For example, fans briefly thought Ryan Guzman, who portrays firefighter Eddie Diaz, might leave following the series’ fourth season finale. Guzman remains a part of the series’ cast, but nevertheless, the threat of his departure was real, especially considering Connie Britton previously left after only one season — save for a short return in Season 3 (via Deadline).
