There's just something about firefighters and primetime television, which is evident in the massive success of NBC’s "Chicago Fire." Now, CBS is getting in on the action, adding its first fire-themed series to its primetime lineup, and "Chicago Fire" fans might love this new series due to its mix of intense firefighting and character stories that pull at the heartstrings.
The new firefighter drama heading to network TV is "Fire Country,” and will debut on CBS on October 9, 2022, in the Friday 9 p.m. EST slot. Falling in between popular CBS dramas "S.W.A.T." and "Blue Bloods," "Fire Country" is sure to pull in new viewers as shows just like it have seen massive success on other channels.
"Fire Country" follows Bode Donavan (Max Thieriot), who joins a prison-release program that trains inmates to fight wildfires. Donavan will be paired with a veteran firefighter to guide him along the way, but his first assignment will land him in his Northern California hometown, where he’ll have to battle past troubles, as well as some of the most devastating wildfires.
