9-1-1: Lone Star fans have never been more anxious, and we can’t exactly blame them.

After being off the air more than a year due to the concurrent writers’ and actors’ strikes, Fox finally released an explosive teaser for the show’s delayed 12-episode fifth season, premiering this fall. But even that was bittersweet, as it’s looking more and more likely that it will be the last season viewers get to spend with their favorite first responders.

Rumors of the show’s impending end began swirling last month, with Deadline reporting that several cast members were already looking for new opportunities; the cast’s options are reportedly up on July 19, which is when production on Season 5 formally wraps. Hearing that original cast member Sierra McClain (Grace Ryder) left the show after a failed contract negotiation is only further stoking the fans’ concerns.

Neither Fox nor 20th Television will confirm whether Season 5 will be 9-1-1: Lone Star‘s last, but recent posts on social media from several of the show’s stars are giving fans cause for concern — including one series regular who looked back fondly on the past five years, before hinting at “so much change on the horizon.”

Read on for a breakdown of what the cast of 9-1-1: Lone Star has posted about Season 5 on social media, much of which indicates that we should enjoy our time with Owen’s team while we still can. When you’re finished, drop a comment with your thoughts below. If the end is nigh for the 126, what do you hope to see in the show’s final season?

It’s impossible not to read between the lines of this Instagram story, via Natacha Karam, who plays adrenaline junkie Marjan:

“Eight more shooting days left after five years on a show is a wild feeling,” she recently posted, complete with a broken heart emoji. “So much change on the horizon.”

An Instagram story from the show’s set reveals a note left by Jackson Pace (aka Judd’s estranged son Wyatt) that implies a goodbye of sorts.

“Thank you for making me feel so at home over the past few years!” the note reads. “Finding my long-lost father, going to jail, having a baby, dropping out of college, getting in a life altering accident. … It’s been such a joy getting to do it all with you!”

As for the blocked-out portion of Pace’s note, it could be about his character becoming a firefighter, something Wyatt was pursuing prior to his accident.

Brian Michael Smith (aka Paul) recently shared a link to a “Save 9-1-1 Lone Star” petition on his Instagram story. While this isn’t proof of cancellation by any means, it’s not a great sign when fans and cast members feel they need to rally for a renewal.

Robyn Lively, who plays Judd’s estranged baby mama Marlene, reportedly deleted a post on social media that originally read “So excited to be a part of @911lonestar’s final season!! What a ride it’s been!”

While it’s entirely possible that Lively was simply misinformed, it feels far more likely that she assumed the final-season news had already been announced when she posted this.

In response to Deadline’s original report about Lone Star‘s rumored cancellation, Ronen Rubinstein (aka T.K. Strand) clarified that nothing is set in stone just yet.

“Nowhere in that article stated a certain fate for our show,” Rubinstein wrote in an Instagram story. “But one thing I do know for certain is we will continue pouring our blood, sweat [and] tears into these last few episodes and deliver to you our most special season yet. I better see all of you in September. #BestFansInTheWorld Unite! I love y’all so fckin much!”

Rafael Silva (aka Carlos Reyes) took a slightly more cryptic route, responding to Deadline’s report with the following sentiment in an Instagram story: “Wherever the ship sails, [I’m] grateful for the family I’ve created on this show.”
