Tonight it's finally time to watch 9-1-1 season 6 online (yes, join us and cut the cord, you don't need cable), you'll see the next evolution of Fox's crisis-focused drama. This year won't be all about those giant all-consuming crises. And we're starting things off with a crashing blimp.

9-1-1 season 6 release date and time

9-1-1 season 6 premieres today (Monday, Sept. 19). Subsequent episodes will follow at the same time on Monday nights.
Time — 8 p.m. ET
• U.S. — Watch on FOX via Sling (opens in new tab) or Fubo.TV (opens in new tab)
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free (opens in new tab) 

You may even spy Beverly Hills, 90210‘s Gabrielle Carteris in the episode — she's one of said blimp's captains. But even without larger disasters, 9-1-1 has seeded some concerns in our minds. 

In a season preview promo we've got below, it appears that there's trouble for at least one member of the 118. Things start off normally, as we see Sergeant Athena Grant (Angela Bassett) and Captain Bobby Nash (Peter Krause) — who are married, in case you forgot — on their own in different cases, handling chaos admirably.

Then, we see firefighter paramedic Henrietta "Hen" Wilson (Aisha Hinds) tell someone off-camera "Losing someone out there is never easy." If that wasn't enough cause for alarm? We immediately see Athena yelling for Bobby. 

This might just be classic misdirection, though. Or so we hope. So, we've got everything you need to watch 9-1-1 season 6 online, as well as the aforementioned promo for the new season:

How to watch the 9-1-1 season 6 from anywhere on Earth

If you're away from home and can't watch FOX where you are, you can still watch 9-1-1 season 6 using the streaming services you already pay for. At least you can with one of the best VPN services. We recommendExpressVPN (opens in new tab) as the best out there, for its stable speeds and 30-day money-back guarantee.

We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. There's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.

How to watch 9-1-1 online in the US

9-1-1 airs on FOX at 8 p.m. ET today (Monday, Sept. 19). Fox is found in most cable packages, but (if you cut the cord) you can also find it on two of the best cable TV alternatives: fuboTV and Sling TV. 

Fox is also on DirecTV Stream, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV. If you have one of the best antennas, you can pull a local FOX network feed out of the sky for free.

Of those two streaming services, the more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all the broadcast networks and a ton of other channels. That's why it's one of the best streaming services. Which is also why it costs $70 per month (twice Sling Blue's $35 per month, which gets you Fox).

Fubo.TV (opens in new tab): One of the best streaming services with FOX, (and also our top pick for watching all of the 2022 NFL live streams), Fubo has all of the right network channels and many cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial (opens in new tab) so you don't need to pay up front.

Sling TV (opens in new tab) provides a more affordable way to stream live TV. The $35 per month Sling Blue has Fox and NBC, while you'll need the $50 Sling Orange + Blue to add ESPN on top.

Can you watch 9-1-1 in Canada, the UK and Australia?

Here's a frustrating bit of news. 9-1-1's current seasons don't appear to air outside of the U.S.. Past seasons, however, are available on Disney Plus.

Americans abroad could just use the service of their choice, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
