This article discusses the upcoming Netflix series High Heat, including the premise, cast and crew, release date, trailer, and more.
Until about the last ten years or so, there didn’t seem to be that many shows that centered around firefighters. Now, High Heat — a new Netflix series — looks set to join the growing collection that has emerged in that time, but with a twist that surely means this won’t be just another fire brigade TV show.
Will it set worlds alight? Here’s everything we know about High Heat:
Netflix series High Heat premise
As Netflix describes –
“When clues to his brother’s murder lead Poncho to a fire brigade, he joins it to investigate further and finds romance, family… and a serial killer.”
Our opinion of the premise
It sounds like there will be A LOT going on! And given the relatively short seven-episode season this is set to be, it seems safe to say that viewers will be in no danger of boredom. Of course, there is potential for things to go pear-shaped; the potential is squandered and the whole series falls flat, or it all becomes too much too soon and is difficult to keep on top of. It’ll be interesting to see how it carries itself, as the initial premise is strong on paper, but the art is in the execution after all.

High Heat release date on Netflix

Is there a trailer for Netflix’s High Heat?
Yes – watch it here:
Emergency services have formed the backdrop for any amount of TV shows for years, and whilst there are a few differences here and there, for the most part, they haven’t strayed too far from portraying their characters and what the days of their lives must be like, both professionally and personally. High Heat looks set to do something quite different in that it’s taking a story that could be placed anywhere and throwing it right into the heart of the fire brigade. Whether this will work for better or worse, only time will tell, but if it works it could be explosive viewing that will surely hang around for longer than the seven episodes lined up so far.
