Across its six seasons, there isn’t much that hasn’t been thrown the way of the men and women of the 118 on FOX’s 911. 

We’ve seen them battle blackouts, survive a dam break and tsunami, and overcome a devastating earthquake that leveled buildings across the city. Now, the 118 is about to face a lightning storm when a dry thunderstorm rolls over LA and wreaks havoc on the lives of the people of Los Angeles.

Ahead of the episode’s arrival, the promotional materials for “In A Flash,” teased the looming lightning storm and the chaos it will bring. As expected, the 118 are called to action and face the storm head-on as they race to save lives which ends up once again putting their own lives on the line.

As the team responds to the series of lightning strike emergencies that come flooding in, Buck seems to find himself directly in the line of fire. The promo for the episode sees Buck getting struck while on a call and the synopsis only adds fuel to the fire by noting that the episode “leaves a first responder’s life hanging in the balance.”

Is Oliver Stark’s Buck leaving 911?

Heading into the 911 season 6 midseason premiere, the odds do not look good for Buck who is seen being struck by lightning while on a call. This coupled with the synopsis for the episode teasing a member of the 118’s life hanging in the balance helped to create concern among fans leading them to question if Buck leaving 911 was in the cards. So is Oliver Stark leaving the show?

While Buck does indeed sustain a serious injury in “In A Flash,” when he is struck by lightning, it does not appear the lightning strike is a fatal one as Oliver Stark has not announced his exit from the show.

Stark remains part of the 911 cast and has continued to post behind-the-scenes content which appears to have been taken after the filming of the midseason premiere. This all seems to suggest that Stark is not going anywhere which makes sense given his popularity among fans and the role he plays as one of the show’s central characters.

Still, we understand why there was some concern among fans given the promo for the episode and the way it hyped up a possible exit.
