Fire Country will continue to burn brightly for CBS.
CBS announced today that it has renewed the broadcast and streaming hit for the 2023-24 season.
Since its premiere on October 7, Fire Country has averaged 8 million viewers per episode, making it the top new broadcast series of the season.
With live +35-day multiplatform viewing, more than 10 million viewers an episode are watching the series across Linear + Streaming platforms (CBS, linear playback, VOD, Paramount+, and the CBS app).
“It’s pretty remarkable to see a new series resonate like this with both broadcast and streaming audiences right out of the gate,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment.
“FIRE COUNTRY has so many appealing entry points for the audience. It combines high-stakes action with small town charm, mystery and romance, and a family franchise at its core.”
“We’re blessed to have an incredible team in front of and behind the camera led by amazing producers and writers and an exceptionally talented cast.”
Fire Country stars Max Thieriot (SEAL Team) as Bode Donovan, a young convict seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining a prison release firefighting program in Northern California, where he and other inmates are partnered with elite firefighters to extinguish massive, unpredictable wildfires across the region.
It’s a high-risk, high-reward assignment, and the heat is turned up when Bode is assigned to the program in his rural hometown, where he was once a golden all-American son – until his troubles began.
Five years ago, Bode burned down everything in his life, leaving town with a big secret.
Now he’s back, with the rap sheet of a criminal and the audacity to believe in a chance for redemption with Cal Fire.
The series also stars Billy Burke, Kevin Alejandro, Diane Farr, Stephanie Arcila, Jordan Calloway, and Jules Latimer.
Tony Phelan, Joan Rater, Tia Napolitano, Max Thieriot, Jerry Bruckheimer, and KristieAnne Reed are executive producers.
The series is produced by CBS Studios.
The series returns with new episodes beginning tonight, Friday, January 6 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), and will air on a special day and time immediately following the AFC Championship Game, Sunday, Jan. 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET; 9:00-10:00 PM, CT; 8:00-9:00 PM, MT; 7:00-8:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network and available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+*.
