The first responders of "9-1-1" are back for a 7th season. New episodes are airing on ABC after FOX opted not to renew its highest-rated (but also very expensive) procedural drama. It premiered Thursday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT — and you can watch from anywhere with a VPN.

'9-1-1' S7: release date, start time, TV channel, streaming info

U.S. date and time: "9-1-1" season 7 premiered Thursday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
• U.S. — ABC (via Sling TV or Fubo).
• Canada — Global TV (via Stack FREE trial or Fubo).

Season 7 kicked off with an epic three-part opener that featured Athena Grant (Oscar nominee Angela Bassett) and Bobby Nash (Peter Krause) on a honeymoon cruise. Of course, it wasn't plain sailing – more like "The Poseidon Adventure."

No spoilers here, but first look shots of Hen (played by Aisha Hinds) in the Captain’s helmet suggested she might have to step up, while new showrunner Tim Minear has promised to focus on the blossoming bromance between Buck (Oliver Stark) and Eddie (Ryan Guzman).

"It took maybe one rehearsal, two rehearsals, and then we were right back into it," said Guzman. "And it felt like we never left." Expect the 'Buddie' friendship to feature in almost every episode.
