911: Lone Star season 5: Will Liv Tyler return as Michelle?

Liv Tyler originally signed onto 911: Lone Star for multiple seasons and left after one. Will we see Michelle back in 911: Lone Star season 5?

When 911: Lone Star first started, we learned that Michelle and Carlos had a close relationship. Carlos would routinely pick Michelle up as she caused a disturbance at her sister’s ex’s place, but he made it clear that she needed to make some changes. This was part of a season-long storyline of Michelle finding her sister.

After one season, Tyler left the show. This wasn’t the original plan, but the pandemic caused problems for filming as Tyler lived in the UK with her family but the show filmed in the U.S. Tyler was released from her contract and a new paramedic came into the story in the form of Gina Torres’s Tommy Vega.

9-1-1: LONE STAR: L-R: Guest star Brianna Baker, Liv Tyler and guest star Rene Moran in “Awakening/Austin, We Have A Problem” two-hour season finale of 9-1-1: LONE STAR airing Monday, March 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2020 Fox Media LLC. CR: Jack Zeman/FOX.

Will Liv Tyler be in 911: Lone Star season 5?

The fourth season had the potential to bring Michelle back into the story. Carlos revealed that he’d actually married Michelle’s sister. He needed a divorce before he could marry T.K. This was a great chance to bring Michelle back, but that didn’t happen. The focus was on Carlos and his wife.

That doesn’t mean we can’t see Michelle again, but it looks like it’s very unlikely. The show would need a good reason to bring Michelle back after already having a doorway open for it. Tommy has become a close-knit part of the team, so it’s not like fans will want to see her replaced for Michelle.

There is time for a storyline to be developed to at least give fans some closure, though. 911: Lone Star season 5 has been pushed to the 2024–2025 season due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike, so maybe there’s a way to get Tyler back, even if it’s just for one episode in the way 911 brought Connie Britton’s Abby back for an episode for closure.
