The Real Reason Connie Britton Is Leaving '9-1-1' and Why Ryan Murphy Says She'll Be Back

By

Even though Ryan Murphy has a slew of wildly successful shows on the air (and multiple more in production after signing a huge deal with Netflix,) he lost one of his biggest stars — and he wants her back. Connie Britton, who is known for her starring roles on Friday Night Lights, Dirty John, and Nashville, appeared in the first season of the hit Fox show, 9-1-1, but it now doesn't look like she'll be returning to the show in a regular capacity again.

Connie's exit has fans and viewers alike confused: Why did the star leave the hit show in the first place? What happened to Connie Britton on 9-1-1? Details on where her character left off (it's a cliffhanger, for sure,) and what Ryan Murphy is saying about the potential for Connie to return to the show.
