The cruise plays a key role in the upcoming season, with Athena (Angela Bassett) and Bobby (Peter Krause) celebrating a belated honeymoon by hitting the high seas — until armed terrorists seize control of their boat. (Watch a new trailer here.) “I think I’m possibly going to be getting into a wet suit sometime soon and having to go save Angela,” co-star Oliver Stark (Buck) previously hinted to TVLine. “Knowing how they cannot catch a break, I feel like there’s a strong possibility of that happening.”

Cosnett is best known for playing detective Eddie Thawne, aka Cobalt Blue, on The CW’s superhero hit The Flash; he returned to reprise the role in last year’s final season. He also played Dr. Wes Maxfield on The Vampire Diaries and Elias Harper on Quantico, with additional roles on Castle and NCIS.

Season 7 of 9-1-1 premieres Thursday, March 14 at 8/7c on ABC, following a six-season run on Fox. Hit the comments below to share your thoughts on Cosnett’s casting.
