As the highly anticipated season 7 premiere of “9-1-1” approaches, Angela Bassett and her co-stars provide a sneak peek into the epic adventures and romantic entanglements awaiting fans.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bassett, known for her role as LAPD sergeant Athena Grant, reflects on the intense filming experience of the latest disaster, involving 14-hour days in a water tank. The upcoming calamity, spread across the first three episodes, pays homage to the classic film “The Poseidon Adventure,” featuring Bassett’s character Athena and her husband Bobby (portrayed by Peter Krause) embarking on a honeymoon cruise turned chaotic when pirates hijack the ship.

Describing the intricate set designs, Krause highlights the innovative roll room, reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” as they navigate the perilous scenarios. Despite the show’s transition from Fox to ABC, the cast and crew embrace the opportunity to explore new narratives, supported by the network’s enthusiastic approach to relaunching the series.
