Rob Lowe is starring in the new 9-1-1 spinoff series, Lone Star, and you can get your first look at it now! If you thought that giant tsunami episode of 9-1-1 made it must-see television, wait until you see what the spinoff has in store. There is nothing chilly about the explosive teaser for Lowe’s new show!

Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star is set to premiere in the heart of winter, in January 2020, making it a midseason addition. The series will kick off with a two-night premiere beginning on Sunday, January 19 and it will conclude the following night on Monday, January 20. Are you ready to get a peek at Rob Lowe in 9-1-1: Lone Star? Check him out in the trailer below!

Rob Lowe has said he thinks he lost out on tens of millions by passing on the role of Grey’s Anatomy’s McDreamy, back in the day. But, he is getting another chance to take on a character facing life-and-death decisions in 9-1-1: Lone Star. Lowe looks more than ready for the challenge!

In a far cry from his game show days and the laughs of Parks and Recreation, Rob Lowe will play Owen in 9-1-1: Lone Star. As you can tell from the trailer, he gets told that it is “time.” Time for what?

Well, saving lots of lives, facing down explosions, and dealing with many high pressure situations. The scene in question may have to do with the decision that leads Owen to the Lone Star state. Rob Lowe’s Owen is a first responder out of New York, who decides to re-locate to Austin, Texas, with his son.

Rob Lowe’s character has been described as “sophisticated.” Owen appears to come into contact with more than just explosions. Some bad weather appears to be on the horizon as well. Is that a tornado I spotted forming at the end of the teaser? It would not surprise me.

Last month, 9-1-1: Lone Star cast Rob Lowe’s co-star. That would be The Leftovers and Lord of the Rings’ actress, Liv Tyler. You can see her in the teaser trailer along with Lowe. Based on the info provided about her character, it seems safe to speculate that prospective viewers are getting a chance to see some of her rock-n-roll nature come into play.

Liv Tyler’s Michelle Blake is the Chief Paramedic on 9-1-1: Lone Star. She also appears to be an avid line dancer! It is not all joy, though. Michelle’s younger sister, Iris, is missing under mysterious circumstances. At the 12-second mark of the 9-1-1: Lone Star trailer, Tyler’s Michelle can be spotted pounding on a door.

Does that have something to do with her sister? Given that she is in plain clothes and not in her uniform, it makes me think she is not on the clock. Will Rob Lowe's Owen help her solve the mystery? 9-1-1 fans will have to tune in and see!

The spinoff, 9-1-1: Lone Star, will premiere over two nights. It begins on Sunday, January 19, and concludes the next night on Monday, January 20. New episodes of the original, 9-1-1, are airing Mondays this fall at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
