CBS announced today that Fire Country has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes ahead of tonight's return from its winter break.

The Friday series premiered in October and got off to a solid start. After its first two episodes averaged over 8 million viewers, the network quickly ordered more episodes to extend its freshman run to a full 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.

Look for Season 2 of Fire Country this fall as part of the 2023-2024 season.
