Gina Torres is reuniting with former FIREFLY scribe Tim Minear on 9-1-1: LONE STAR, Fox announced.

Torres, who will be a series regular when the show returns for its sophomore year, will play Paramedic Captain Tommy Vega, “who was at the top of her game when she hung up her uniform to raise her twin daughters. For eight years life was great, until Covid-19 changed her life. With her husband’s restaurant going under, Tommy has no choice but to re-enter the workforce to support her family. Though it breaks her heart to be apart from her little girls, Tommy will show the world that no matter how much time has passed, when she puts on that uniform, she’s still a boss.”

“We are so excited to be expanding our 9-1-1-verse with the addition of Gina Torres,” said Minear. “I’ve been dying to write for her again ever since FIREFLY. Gina brings warmth, intelligence and command to everything she does. 2020 is finally looking up.”

Torres previously starred in PEARSON, SUITS, HANNIBAL, and ALIAS.

This drama is set to go back into production later this year for its 2021 return.
