Sheriff-Centric Fire Country Spinoff Eyed at CBS — Get Details on Lead Role

Things are heating up on the Fire Country sp inoff front.

Six months after CBS president and CEO George Cheeks first teased multiple offshoots of the 2022-23 TV season’s breakout freshman hit, sources tell TVLine that CBS/CBS Studios is in the process of casting a female sheriff character, who will first appear in a Season 2 Fire Country episode.

The yet-to-be-cast actor would appear on Fire Country as a guest star, with an option for a series regular role in a potential spinoff, if Sheriff’s Country (the title we’ve heard bandied about) is ordered to series.

CBS declined comment on the prospective spinoff/casting.

CBS CEO Cheeks first teased Fire Country offshoots back in June, saying the network would be “doubling down” on a show that “completely lends itself to building out a whole new universe.”

Coming off of best-of-freshman class ratings and a highly engaged audience, “It became very clear that not only was the show special, it really felt like this could be a great example of us building together a franchise from scratch,” Cheeks said. “And so I’m like, ‘You guys, congratulations, you got your [full-season order]. Now let’s start talking about ideas for new extensions.’ They’ve already come up with some great ones.”

Fire Country Season 2 is set to premiere Friday, Feb. 16, 2024, once again hammocked between S.W.A.T. (entering its final season) and Blue Bloods (which will be launching the first half of its own farewell run).
