If there’s one lesson to take away from ABC’s latest trailer for 9-1-1 Season 7, it’s this: Athena Grant’s instincts are always right.
More from TVLine
Released on Saturday, the preview finds Angela Bassett’s character confiding in her therapist that she’s “terrified” of going on a belated honeymoon cruise with Bobby (Peter Krause), fearing that something will go wrong. (And given everything she’s been through in the last six years alone, can you blame her?) She’s assured that everything will “probably” be fine — which mean it absolutely will not.
Cut to footage of armed terrorists seizing control of the boat, which then explodes and capsizes, turning Bobby and Athena’s honeymoon into a full-on Poseidon Adventure. Watch the new trailer below:
A cruise crisis felt imminent from the final moments of the Season 6 finale, which ended with an ominous shot of Bobby and Athena boarding an enormous ship, and one cast member has been ready for action ever since.
“I think I’m possibly going to be getting into a wet suit sometime soon and having to go save Angela,” Oliver Stark told TVLine when the finale aired in May 2023. “Knowing how they cannot catch a break, I feel like there’s a strong possibility of that happening.” (A very strong possibility, as it turns out.)
