The question of whether Rob Lowe is leaving 9-1-1: Lone Star might seem difficult to answer at first glance. The fact that his character, Owen Strand, appears to be in dire straits heading into the season 3 finale is worrying. But it doesn’t help either, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lowe has signed with Netflix to co-direct a comedy called “Unstable” with his son, John Owen Lowe, in April 2022. The show was ordered directly in series. But according to THR, there’s no sign of Lowe leaving his spot on 9-1-1: Lone Star to work on his new Netflix project.
Even more reassuring is the fact that at the time of the announcement, TVLine stated that Lowe’s work on the Fox drama will not be affected by his involvement in Unstable. That means he’ll reportedly be juggling both jobs at the same time should 9-1-1: Lone Star be renewed for a fourth season. The same likely goes for John Owen, who is working as a permanent writer and story editor on 9-1-1: Lone Star, according to IMDb. As dangerous as things are looking for Owen right now, it’s unlikely he’ll die after that shocking explosion in Spring Cleaning.
Of course, we’re leaving a bit of wiggle room here in case 9-1-1: Lone Star tries to shock its audience with a sudden plot twist and kills off Owen in A Bright and Cloudless Morning’s Season 3 finale episode .
