Warning: this article contains spoilers for 911 season 7 at US pace, for episodes that have yet to air in the UK.


While the internet has been abuzz with excitement around the latest season of 911, UK fans have had to wait in anticipation for a release date.

Well, now the wait is finally over, as the new season of the hit procedural drama premieres on Disney Plus today (Wednesday 1st May).

An exciting way to kick off the new month, the seventh season of 911 has already gone down a storm with viewers stateside, and now will be releasing weekly episodes on the Disney streamer.

Previously, seasons 1 to 5 of 911 had premiered in the UK on Sky Witness (with all seasons available to watch on Disney Plus too), so this change in release format will certainly be good news for Disney Plus subscribers.

The much-anticipated first episode sees Athena and Bobby set off on their honeymoon cruise, but their holiday is quickly put on hold when duty calls.

It's sure to be quite the explosive series opener, but it's the rest of the season that has also got plenty talking - as there's a majorly surprising romantic moment for one of 911's main characters, Buck (played by Oliver Stark).

Similar to many American procedural dramas, 911 deals with a slew of brand new cases in each episode - but unlike series in the same vein, 911 actually follows the lives of not just one emergency service, but several.

It follows Los Angeles first responders including police officers, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers.

The general series synopsis for 911 is as follows: "Creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear reimagine the procedural drama with 911, exploring the high-pressure experiences of police officers, firefighters and dispatchers who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations.

"These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives."

Created by Murphy, Falchuk and Minear (all known for their collaborative work on American Horror Story), the series is now in its seventh season, and was previously Fox’s top-rated drama for several seasons before being picked up by ABC.

It's proven so popular just a few episodes into season 7 that it's already been renewed for season 8.

Is there a trailer for 911 season 7?

There is! Featuring and narrated by the wonderful Angela Bassett, we get a glimpse of the episodes to come, which kick off on a cruise liner that has been hijacked by machine gun-wielding bad guys.

It's a roller coaster ride of a trailer, but one thing's for certain – there's plenty of drama in store this season. Watch it below.

911 season 7 premieres on Disney Plus on Wednesday 1st May, with new episodes weekly. Sign up to Disney Plus for £7.99 a month or £79.90 for a year.
