What is Fire Country about?

Fire Country is a CBS original drama about a special rehabilitation program for prisoners. In the show, convicts can take part in a prison release program that sees them paired up with firefighters. If they successfully complete the program, then they can earn early release from prison.

The show’s main protagonist, Bode Donavan takes part in the program, but runs into problems when he is assigned to work the program in his rural hometown – the place where he was convicted of his misdemeanors.

What is the cast for Fire Country?

The show’s protagonist Bode Donovan is played by Max Thieriot, and by all accounts, the show will primarily focus on Theiriot. However, the show actually has quite a large cast, including Billy Burke and Diane Farr as married chiefs. Kevin Alejandro plays the head of the prison-release program. Stephanie Arcila plays a local girl in the rural area where it is set. And Jordan Calloway and Jules Latimer play firefighters.

Can I use a free VPN to watch Fire Country?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is no. CBS, Paramount Plus, and Global TV have already blocked the vast majority of VPN providers – and free VPNs were the first to go. You will need to subscribe to one of our recommendations to watch the show abroad.
