‘Sheriff Country’ Is Happening: Everything We Know About the ‘Fire Country’ Spinoff

CBS has a new franchise on its hands. Fire Country has been such a hit for the network, it’s no surprise that it’s expanding its world.

Morena Baccarin as Sheriff Mickey Fox — 'Fire Country' Season 2 Episode 6

It was soon after the first season that rumors started about a potential spinoff, and in its second, Fire Country introduced the character who would be leading it. Not even a month later, Sheriff Country was ordered to series, but when will it air? Will Morena Baccarin‘s Mickey Fox appear on Fire Country again before then?

Read on for everything we know and keep checking back because this will be updated as more is announced.

Is There Going to Be a New Fire Country Show?

Yes! The Fire Country episode introducing Baccarin’s Mickey aired on April 2, and less than a month later, on May 2, CBS officially ordered Sheriff Country to series.

When Will Sheriff Country Air?
The series will be part of the 2025-2026 broadcast season, meaning that Fire Country Season 3 will air (in the 2024-2025 season) before it premieres.

Who Will Star in Sheriff Country?
Baccarin will star as Sheriff Mickey Fox, as introduced in Fire Country Season 2 Episode 6. She has held the position for 15 years and knows every part of Edgewater, including its residents. She’s very protective of her town.

“Morena is the perfect addition to our players here, our cast of people. She fits in so well. There’s no drama,” Fire Country star Kevin Alejandro told TV Insider early in Season 2. “She comes in ready to work, and it’s really cool to see a new fresh sort of character on our show. She’s kind of perfect for what we’re doing.”

How Did Fire Country Set up the New Show?
Early on in her introduction, Mickey was revealed to be the estranged stepsister of Sharon Leone (Diane Farr). “I was so excited to get that script,” Farr told us. “They’ve been developing it for a long time, and when they told me she was going to be my sister, it was so exciting because every layer of family for a character just allows you to see a different side of them. [I thought] Morena is like a gift and would be so thrilling. And because she was going to be yet another really strong female, another strong alpha female, I thought it would be really fun if we could get to see Sharon be kind of petulant and whiny and holding a grudge. Where does she get to be the foot stomping five-year-old? So she’s a wonderful scene partner. We have the exact same way of working. We were both really excited to be there. We had hours and hours and hours just figuring it out.”

Mickey had also previously arrested Bode (Max Thieriot, who directed Season 2 Episode 6) and, during the course of the investigation that revealed one of her fellow deputies to be corrupt (and the person who killed the sheriff), trusted him enough to uncuff him and send him into the woods after a fleeing inmate.

That Fire Country episode also teased a bit about Mickey’s daughter, a freshman in college who the sheriff had tried to raise to not be like Bode but she ended up in rehab after buying drugs from someone she met online.

What Will the Spinoff Be About?

Sheriff Country will follow the straight-shooting Mickey who investigates criminal activity as she patrols the streets of small-town Edgewater while contending with her ex-con father and a mysterious incident involving her wayward daughter. It’s expanding on the world of Fire Country and the town of Edgewater.

Will Morena Baccarin Return to Fire Country in Season 3 Before Sheriff Country Premieres?
Yes! Executive producer Tia Napolitano told us after the Season 2 finale that Baccarin will be back next season, adding, “She’s part of Edgewater, and we’re just expanding the Edgewater universe. So I think it’ll feel like coming home when you finally are able to tune into Sheriff Country, even though it’s in 2025.”

She won’t be around “full time,” according to Thieriot, “but I’m looking forward to hopefully at least getting her a couple of times and incorporating her into what’s going on in the town, but also just more of the personal lives and the relationships with these other characters that we’ve seen her interact with.”

He added, “Before we get to launch Sheriff Country, I think there’s also a lot more to unpack with Mickey. Obviously we tried to really get out as much backstory as we possibly could in that episode, but I think it’ll be fun to sort of drop in different figures in her life in this show to just sort of build that rapport with the audience and get to see Mickey and Bode interact together outside [what we saw]. Mickey’s daughter, I think there’s a lot of fun stuff that we can play with leading up to that.”
