9-1-1 Lone Star on M6: how the writers included a real snowstorm in the first episode of season 3

“911 Lone Star” returns this Saturday evening on M6 for the broadcast of season 3 which once again promises to be full of disasters, as evidenced by the first episode which takes place in an ice storm.

The 126th firefighters are finally back! M6 is broadcasting this Saturday, September 23 from 9:10 p.m. the first 4 episodes of the highly anticipated season 3 of 9-1-1 Lone Star. The opportunity for viewers to find Owen (Rob Lowe), TK (Ronen Rubinstein) and the others in new adventures which once again promise to be eventful.

Remember: in the season 2 finale, station 126 was closed, and the team had been dispersed to different barracks in the city. For their part, Gwyneth (Lisa Edelstein) and Grace (Sierra Aylina McClain) learned that they were pregnant.

A first episode based on a true story

As usual, season 3 of 9-1-1 Lone Star opens with a dramatic episode that sees the former members of the 126 face a meteorological phenomenon of unprecedented magnitude.

In “Snowy day”, the city of Austin finds itself paralyzed by an ice storm which causes general chaos. 9-1-1 must then manage numerous emergencies in order to save the lives of their compatriots. An incredible scenario to say the least which is nevertheless inspired by a true story.

In February 2021, the United States experienced a major ice storm, which particularly affected Texas. More than 100 people died in this rare meteorological phenomenon for this desert region.

More accustomed to record heat, millions of Texans found themselves without water or electricity for 4 days while temperatures dropped to -25°C. This event inspired Tim Minear, the showrunner of 9-1-1 Lone Star, who still doubted for a long time before validating the idea.

At first I hesitated”, he confided at the time in an interview with Decide. “A tsunami is one thing. We create a show, we build streets in a water tank in Mexico, we have a big event […] and it’s very visual. But cold is cold. It is not a grandiose disaster like a tsunami or an earthquake. It’s something that takes place over a long period of time.

The first thing we had to think about was how to make it snow in Texas while we were filming in Los Angeles in 40 degree weather. […] All of this is therefore the fruit of the special effects and practical effects teams..”
