    In an unprecedented move, the hit drama ‘9-1-1’, following its engaging firefighting and police team, has reeled in a massive wave of viewers this season, touting an incredible 8.85 million across platforms just after its move to ABC for its seventh season, reports The Wrap. This spike in ratings could be attributed to an unexpected but welcomed surge of LGBTQ+ viewers, captivated by a particular character – Buck, who recently came out as bisexual.

Capturing the complexities of relationships within the LGBTQ+ community is a sweet blend of realism and relatability that has added a dash of charm to the series.
