Your favorite fictional L.A. first responders aren’t going anywhere anytime soon: 9-1-1 is returning for season 5.

After watching the season 4 finale, fans were finally able to breathe a sigh of relief. Millions tuned in to the latest episode to see if Eddie (Ryan Guzman) survived his shot to the chest (thankfully, he did). Meanwhile, Athena (Angela Bassett) came to the rescue by apprehending the sniper gone rogue. Then, fulfilling many viewers' hopes, she and Bobby (Peter Krause) agreed to save their marriage. What’s more, Buck (Oliver Stark) is officially in a relationship and Albert (John Harlan Kim) joined the squad as a firefighter. That said, Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) asked Chimney (Kenneth Choi) for help after feeling like she was “losing [her] mind.”

If you can’t wait to see what happens next, here’s what we know about season 5 of 9-1-1:
