Jennifer Love Hewitt is finally making a return to ‘9-1-1’ after maternity leave

Maddie is ready to reunite with Chimney and her baby! Or well, Jennifer Love Hewitt is at least. Hewitt had to exit Fox's 9-1-1, after three years on the show, to take maternity leave back in October – leading to an abrupt exit of her character, Maddie Buckley. But in a recent interview, the actress revealed that she is back and ready to give fans the answers they've been longing for. "The way Maddie left was very extreme – and the way I was feeling when I left was very extreme because I was very pregnant," Hewitt told Entertainment Weekly. "I think the audience has a lot of questions. And I feel good about the fact that all of them will be answered on [March 28]." Hewitt continued, "Definitely weird coming back to work with a five-month-old – especially the work that I do on the show, which is some of the heavier stuff – but it was really exciting. I was excited to come back and tell Maddie's story and answer a lot of questions for people." Find it all when 9-1-1 airs March 28 on Fox.
