The gripping hit drama “9-1-1” is coming to USA Network following a new licensing agreement between NBCUniversal Television and Streaming and Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution.
Beginning Jan. 5, episodes will air in a block on USA on Wednesdays nights from 7-11 p.m. The deal covers all four previous seasons of the show, including an exclusive cable window that runs through mid-September 2022. The agreement also includes future seasons of “9-1-1” and the current fifth season, which will come to USA Network later this year.
“‘9-1-1’ is the perfect addition to USA Network, which has long been a destination for big, iconic characters and event television,” said Val Boreland, Executive Vice President, Entertainment Content Acquisitions, NBCUniversal Television & Streaming. “The show is a proven hit with critics and audiences alike, making this a home run for our viewers who can now enjoy these incredible seasons as part of our portfolio’s growing library.”
