However, in the season finale fans saw Jennifer's character Maddie Buckley admit to Chimney that she was "losing it" as she battled postpartum depression and struggled to embrace motherhood.

Showrunner Tim Minear previously revealed that Maddie's arc is "a story that I don’t want to give short shrift to".

"It will end up creating a major complication for season five," he added.

Jennifer is mom to two children - daughter Autumn, seven, and son Atticus, six - but revealed in May that her pregnancy was a welcomed surprise.

"We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn't think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment," she said.

"I feel like we've been able to so far raise two really special kids who will be great role models. This has been such a pleasant, beautiful, surprising gift in this time to be able to get to do all that again with another little human."

9-1-1 returns to Fox on Monday 20 September 2021.
