The show appears to be moving forward rather than backward, which is great news! If you’re currently tuning in to watch the episodes, then you’re aware that the first season has not yet completely aired and is reported to end on January 20, 2023. But if you read the updates today, CBS has already approved a new season, which shows that interest in and love for this television show are only growing and probably won’t change any time soon.
As a result, the inquisitiveness of the fans about how the series will be able to expand for more episodes is at an all-time high. On the other hand, it is clear from the first few episodes alone that the show has a lot of room for growth with explorative arcs. If you’re one of those people who wants clarification about the renewal status, among other details, then look no further. To find all of your answers, keep reading until the very end. Here is everything we know so far about Fire Country Season 2.
Fire Country Season 2 Renewal Status
It is no surprise that the show is returning for another season, as the overall reception alone indicates the show’s popularity along with the fairly good critical acclaim from the audience and critics. The series 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 have watched the procedural across linear and streaming platforms.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
The official Twitter handle also confirmed the renewal among its followers, quoting, “This story’s not done yet. #FireCountry has officially been renewed for season 2!” Take a look at the official post below:

Fire Country Season 2: What to expect?
We would like to bring attention to the fact that the exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed by the network. However, it has been speculated that the forthcoming season would most likely have a release window suggested to be around the fall of 2023-2024 season. As, the first season premiered its pilot episode on October 7, 2022, it is expected to follow a similar time slot, with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS and later available to stream on Paramount Plus. Of course, this is just speculation! Hence, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the second season.
In the meantime, catch up with the prior episodes to know what the story has been so far which will carry further into the new season following, “Bad choices don’t make a bad man. At least that’s what Bode Donavan’s been told. Midway through a five-year prison stretch, he’s been trying to convince himself of it, too. He gets the chance to prove it, signing on to an unconventional prison-release program: in exchange for reduced sentences, convicts are paired with firefighters battling Northern California wildfires. The heat is turned up when Bode’s assigned to the program in his rural hometown, the place where all his troubles began.”
On the other hand, the main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles include Max Thieriot as Bode Donovan, Kevin Alejandro as Manny Perez, Jordan Calloway as Jake Crawford, Stephanie Arcila as Gabriella Perez, Jules Latimer as Eve Edwards, Diane Farr as Sharon Leone, and Billy Burke as Vince Leone. In addition to this, the returning cast members, including Michael Trucco as Luke, and Jade Pettyjohn as Riley are also expected to return for the next season. Fire Country, from Jerry Bruckheimer Television and CBS Studios, is inspired by Thieriot’s experiences growing up in fire country and stems from an original idea by the actor, who also co-penned the story for the pilot with its writers, Tony Phelan and Joan Rater.
Fire Country Season 2 Episodes and Streaming Options
It is expected to have the same range of episodes and is intended to follow the same framework to be consistent.
