At the end of season four, six million viewers tuned in to see if firefighter Eddie Diaz had died after he was shot by a sniper.

The show will return on 20 September

It is unclear if the health scare is related to his surgery, but fans have been keen for the show to explore the potential PTSD side effects he may face, especially as he was previously a soldier who was shot by snipers in Afghanistan.

Jennifer Love Hewitt's character Maddie was also seen breaking down and finally asking for help as she suffers from postpartum depression, and Buck rekindled his romance with news reporter Taylor Kelly.

9-1-1 returns to Fox on 20 September at 8/7c
