Fire Country quickly became one of the most popular new shows of the season when it premiered in fall 2022 — and after a long wait, season 2 is coming.
The series aired its first two installments in October 2022, and three months later, CBS renewed the show for a second season. Season 1 ended in May 2023.
The procedural is led by Max Thieriot, who cocreated the series with Tony Phelan and Joan Rater. Thieriot plays Bode Donovan, a convict who begins working with California firefighters in order to lessen his prison sentence. Unlike his fellow prisoners, however, Bode has a family connection to firefighting: his father, Vince Leone (Billy Burke), is the Cal Fire Battalion Chief.
Thieriot was inspired to create the show after seeing firsthand how firefighters respond in a crisis. His family was living in Occidental, California, in 2017 when the Tubbs and Nuns wildfires burned through tens of thousands of acres.
