9-1-1 - Season 2 - Jennifer Love Hewitt Joins Cast as Series Regular

Jennifer Love Hewitt has answered Fox's 911 call.

The actress has joined the cast of the Tim Minear-led Fox procedural about first responders as a regular for season two.

Hewitt will play Maddie, the sister of firefighter Evan "Buck" Buckley (Oliver Stark), who is starting her life over as a 911 operator on the drama. Hewitt will help fill the void created by star Connie Britton, who will not be returning as a series regular. Britton, who also portrayed a 911 operator, had a one-year deal on the drama from exec producer Ryan Murphy and 20th Century Fox Television and could return for a guest role. A formal decision on Britton's potential return has not yet been determined.
