At CBS, “Fire Country” has been given a Season 2 renewal.
The ninth episode, which is planned to air on January 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, will be the ninth to air since the show’s original CBS launch on October 7. Less than two weeks after it made its premiere, a complete season was ordered.
According to CBS, the show averages more than 10 million viewers across all platforms when it is shown live for 35 days. The programme will continue to air on Fridays and will debut a special episode on January 29 immediately after the AFC Championship game before going back to its usual time slot. Paramount+ also offers a stream of it.
According to Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, “it’s fairly remarkable to have a new series connect with audiences on both broadcast and streaming platforms this quickly.” “Fire Country’s audience access points are so enticing. It features a family brand at its core, high-stakes action, the charm of a small community, mystery, and romance. We are fortunate to have an outstanding cast and crew, lead by wonderful producers and writers, both in front of and behind the camera.
Stars of the show include Max Thieriot, Billy Burke, Kevin Alejandro, Diane Farr, Stephanie Arcila, Jordan Callaway, and Jules Latimer.
Bode Donovan, played by Thieriot, is described as “a young convict seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining a prison release firefighting programme in Northern California, where he and other inmates are partnered with elite firefighters to extinguish massive, unpredictable wildfires throughout the region. Bode’s deployment to the programme in his remote hometown, where he was once a shining all-American kid – until his problems began, adds to the tension of this high-risk, high-reward assignment. Bode left town with a massive secret after destroying everything in his life five years prior. He’s back now, brazen enough to think that working for Cal Fire will give him a second opportunity at atonement despite having a criminal record.
The series was created by Thieriot, Joan Rater, and Tony Phelan. Along with Tia Napolitano, who also serves as the showrunner, all three are executive producers. Executive producing are Jerry Bruckheimer of Jerry Bruckheimer Television and KristieAnne Reed. producing is CBS Studios.
