Nine surviving hostages from a spectacular bank hold-up meet regularly. The memories keep haunting them, in flash-backs slowly revealing that story. Two surviving perpetrators in jail, brothers, and the police, including survivor Nick, also remain focused on its aftermath, which keeps affecting all of them, their loved ones, colleagues etcetera.

After the cancellation Chi McBride joked "The Nine was the first show in TV history named after its audience." He also revealed that had the show gone on, his character would have been turned out to be behind the bank robbery in an attempt to get ahead of quickly rising debt. See more »
Fans of "The Nine" Want To See A DVD...................
If ever there was a fan base who deserved a DVD request, its the fans of "The Nine." Of course all of us know how badly this brilliant show was treated by ABC right from the very beginning (i.e. scheduling it - UNBELIEVABLY - in the same Wednesday 10:00 p.m. time slot) - the slot where many of ABC's previous shows were also prematurely pulled (a lot of us are "EYES" fans too, ABC). Fans of The Nine waited for months and months, believing ABC's promise that they would air the remaining episodes some time in 2007. We were patient - We trusted you guys - We had no reason to believe otherwise. We waited through spring, when it was first going to air;then we waited through summer thinking that it would be aired as an alternative to summer reruns. Several months later ABC finally aired 2 of the remaining episodes. Great! Fans tuned in on the third week back only to find The Nine had been pulled AGAIN!
ABC blindsided this loyal fan base. They did not keep their promise to us. Gee ABC...low ratings? Could it be because some genius at your network decided not only to do "0" promotion, but because the same Wednesday 10:00 p.m. competitive time slot was used? ARE YOU KIDDING US??????? Any initial gratitude we had soon turned to feelings of anger, shock and immense disappointment. ABC's message to fans of The Nine: "WE DON'T VALUE OUR ADULT VIEWERS, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE THE ONES WHO MAKE AND BREAK A NETWORK." Its as if ABC thought the fans would just give up (after waiting for MONTHS and MONTHS). Even the other networks allowed their shows to go an entire season, canceled or not.
Well ABC, WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE without some type of compensation to make up for a broken promise. At the very least your network owes loyal fans a DVD, AND some form of conclusion to the series. Perhaps a made-for-TV movie, as networks have done in the past? Yes, we know the actors are on other shows now, but we would be willing to wait for a time when they are either on vacation status or hiatus or whatever. WE'VE ALREADY WAITED THIS LONG, SO WHAT'S ANOTHER LONG WAIT? If this is not possible for some reason, how 'bout allowing fans to see the remaining scripts? You could post them on your website and you could also put them on the DVD (the one you owe us). If money is all this network cares about, FANS OF THE NINE WILL WILLINGLY PURCHASE THE DVDS. We LOVE this show and miss it terribly. Now there is virtually nothing on ABC for mature adult viewers to watch and that's the audience your network is driving away. So, at least consider this proposal ABC?!
