LIV Tyler has quit emergency service drama 911: Lone Star 'because she's scared of flying during the coronavirus pandemic'.
The star has decided to leave the show over fears of resuming her previous commute by plane from the UK to film in Los Angeles.
Liv, 43, starred in the American drama alongside Rob Lowe, playing the role of paramedic Michelle Blake in the show's first season.
Now Deadline has reported the mother-of-three will not return for a second series due to "the coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding travel amid a potential new wave of infections".
New travel bans and restrictions are constantly being updated in the UK as the government continues to battle against the pandemic.
Like many other shows, filming for season two was shut down in March and there are now plans to resume in October from the 12th.
If Liv. whose partner is David Beckham's best pal David Gardener, was to fly out to LA without her family and rules were to change, she would be stuck on the other side of the Atlantic without them.
Showrunner and series co-creator Tim Minear said in a statement: "What a thrill it was having a movie star of Liv Tyler’s stature to help us launch the first season of 9-1-1: Lone Star.
"We loved working with Liv and will be forever indebted to her for her haunting, powerful portrayal of Michelle Blake.
"The door here will always be open for a return."
To fill the void she leaves, actress Gina Torres has been recruited to join the cast.
The Suits star will play Tommy Vega, the new captain of a paramedic team.
