“You’re definitely going to see Violet have to cope with a whole new challenge,” says portrayer Hanako Greensmith. “I’m confident in saying it’s not something that I or Violet had to experience before. And so I think family is going to have a whole new meaning for her coming through that challenge and seeing how the firehouse really is able to be there for her in that time. it’s definitely going to be a story shift for a lot of people, and I think it’ll be exciting, and I’m excited to see how the fans react to it.”

Any scoop on the new season of 9-1-1? –Erica
I am hearing that the sixth episode of Season 6, airing in late October, will be a flashback-heavy episode a la “When Hen Met Karen” — interspersed with the 118 racing to the rescue when Karen’s lab suffers an massive explosion on the day Denny tags along to work with her.

It also creates some fun with him and Fatima.”
