Closely typing up the theme of redemption with the world of firefighters that meet with death face-to-face on a regular basis, Fire Country is indubitably an engaging and thrilling series that never fails to talk about personal growth, transformation, and second chances.
For those unversed, Fire Country is modeled around a group of volunteer firefighters from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection who hail from different backgrounds, including inmates pleading mercy from the law. Revolving around the criminal Bode Donovan, formerly known as Bode Leone (Maz Thierot), the first season underscores his attempts to reduce his lengthy sentence for armed robbery by being a part of this group.
On the one hand, the Fire Country season one finale exacerbated Bode’s condition, but on the other, it also teased at Bode’s endeavors to come out of the situation for Fire Country season 2. For those unversed, Fire Country season 1, episode 21, made matters worse as it endangered Bode’s position at Three Rock and his parole hearing. Meanwhile, the investigation from the state attorney’s office into the skirmishes at the inmate fire camp has Bode’s imprisonment an inevitable thing.
In Fire Country season one, episode 22, Bode saw the confidence fade away from the eyes of his loved ones after his positive drug test. Plus, he would never say no to Mel’s proposal considering that he was forced to choose between the truth and protecting Freddie.
Finding himself in this quicksand of what’s right and what’s grey, Bode decides to lie to the parole board and burden himself with the blame, owing to his need to sacrifice his well-being for others. This need comes in the wake of his realization that nobody except Gabriela believed him.
Given that his family and friends did not have an iota of faith left in him, he was convinced that accepting Mel’s offer would unleash Freddie’s freedom. Bode’s situation in Fire Country season one has consequently set the stage for him in season 2. Here’s what we expect to happen in Fire Country season 2.
When can we expect Fire Country season 2 to arrive on CBS?
Owing to the exponential popularity and success of the first season, CBS decided to renew Fire Country for second season in January right before the release of Episode 9.
“It’s pretty remarkable to see a new series resonate like this with both broadcast and streaming audiences right out of the gate. 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.,” said Amy Resisenback, president of CBS Entertainment about the renewal.
The first season of Fire Country wrapped on May 19. Consequently, it becomes relatively early to determine the exact premiere date of its second season. Normally, CBS releases new shows/seasons during fall, from mid-September to mid-October, and continues to run them from October to March (however, this also depends upon the number of episodes).
Be that as it may, owing to the current WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the schedules might be affected, and we might not be able to stream the second season in the given schedule at all.
All the new episodes of Fire Country season 2 will be available for streaming on CBS. It is also available for streaming on FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, and YouTube.
What can we expect to happen in Fire Country season 2?
Throughout season one, Bode contended that being at the Three Rock camp was the best opportunity for him since it offered the possibility of doing what he wanted to do with his family closer to him. He loved being a part of Three Rock so much that the idea of getting to parole terrified him, especially if it heralded a glitch in his routine at the fire inmate camp. In season 2, Bode will have to prove his worth for staying in the Three Rocks and relentlessly struggle for it.
In season one, the viewers also catch a glimpse of Bode finding himself in trouble when he could have wisely chosen between taking the more prudent thing and shielding himself or sacrificing himself for others. A lot of instances, like jumping in a car that is falling off a bridge, and lying to his best friend, testified that Bode seldom protected his parole hearing or even his chance to be a Three Rock. Considering that he has lost everyone who believed in him by the end of Fire Country season one, Bode will have to learn how to stand up for himself if he wishes to return to Three Rock in Fire Country season 2.
Given that Bode’s fears about Gabriela indulging in a feud with Sleeper materialized and prevented him from doing anything, he will be given a chance to fight Sleeper in prison without thinking about what Freddie or Gabriela would say or do since they would be out of reach in Fire Country season 2. This proves that Bode’s return to prison would consequently lead him to finally defeat Sleeper and achieve his place back at Three Rock in Fire Country season 2.
