According to what was announced by Deadline, actress Liv Tyler, who participated in the first season of 9-1-1: Lone Star, announced her departure from the series. Thanks to that, we will not see paramedic Michelle Blake in the second year of Fox production.
Tyler, in order to record, would need to travel extensively between his home in London, England, and the United States, where the 9-1-1 season 2: Lone Star recordings should take place. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the actress was afraid and chose not to put herself at risk, as well as her own family, and decided to leave the series.
