CBS is giving FIRE COUNTRY a big platform in January: The freshman drama will air a special episode after the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, January 29 (approximately 10/9c; 7 PM PT).

“FIRE COUNTRY lit a spark with viewers this season,” said Noriko Kelley, executive vice president of program planning and scheduling at CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “Each week, we have seen a steady ratings climb and the show is also the #1 new series on Paramount+. The AFC Championship Game has always been a huge draw for audiences, so it is the perfect opportunity to showcase this new compelling series and grow the FIRE COUNTRY fan base even more.”

According to CBS, “the show stars Max Thieriot (SEAL TEAM) as Bode Donovan, a young convict seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence by joining a prison release firefighting program in Northern California, where he and other inmates are partnered with elite firefighters to extinguish massive, unpredictable wildfires across the region. It’s a high-risk, high-reward assignment, and the heat is turned up when Bode is assigned to the program in his rural hometown, where he was once a golden all-American son – until his troubles began. Five years ago, Bode burned down everything in his life, leaving town with a big secret. Now he’s back, with the rap sheet of a criminal and the audacity to believe in a chance for redemption with Cal Fire. FIRE COUNTRY also stars Billy Burke, Kevin Alejandro, Diane Farr, Stephanie Arcila, Jordan Calloway and Jules Latimer.”
