The devoted fans commented on a previous trailer that they "can't wait to see Eddie finally getting the screen time he deserves," as others wondered if the character was suffering from "hyper-vigilance", commenting: "Eddie looks so tense in all these pics. I don't think he just hates animals."

What health complications will Eddie face now?

The show will return on 20 September 2021 and the first trailer revealed that the opening episodes will focus on a major hacking of the city's operations, leading to a blackout that will engulf the city of Los Angeles.

The tag line read: “When the lights go out, chaos sets in.”

At the end of season four, six million viewers tuned in to see if Eddie had died - spoiler alert: he didn't - and to discover if Captain Bobby Nash and Sergeant Athena Grant's marriage was truly over.
