Where to watch Fire Country?
The firefighter drama series is streaming for Paramount+ subsribers. You can also stream the new episodes on the official CBS app or TV channel on Fridays. New episodes are airing on Fridays at 9/8c on the CBS Channel.
We should not jump to the conclusion of any show after wathching 3 or 4 episodes but the series is doing good and there are chances that it will be renewed for a second season. The way they have presented one of the dangerous jobs and an underdog getting redeemed is a good move.
Also, the show appears somehow realistic as it is based on Thierot’s growing up experiences in Northern California. The actor seems to be the only one who is having Hollywood juice nowadays but we must say, the shooting should have done better.
