CBS announced today that Fire Country's freshman season is getting a little longer. The network has ordered a batch of additional episodes to extend the drama's run, though the exact number is not known.
The Friday series premiered earlier this month and is off to a solid start. Its first two episodes have averaged over 8 million viewers, making it the most-watched new show of the 2022-2023 season.
In Fire Country, a young convict named Bode Donovan is looking for redemption and a shortened prison sentence, so he joins a firefighting program that brings him back to his small hometown in Northern California where he and other inmates work alongside elite firefighters to extinguish huge blazes across the region.
