This article discusses the upcoming Netflix series Under Fire and will cover the release date, cast, production, premise, and episode details.
Later this August, you will be able to watch the series Under Fire, a drama set in the world of fire fighting, but putting out the flames is only half the battle for this particular station. This sounds like a brilliant drama; we wonder if it will give off Virgin River vibes with a softer story. Let’s see. Here’s everything we know about the series.
Netflix series Under Fire release date
Under Fire is slated for a global Netflix release on August 24th, 2022.
Under Fire premise
Media has often gone to the emergency services for TV drama, and it has spawned some of the most inventive and long-running series in the world. Usually, the police are the center of attention, and often the medical services are the spotlight but here we follow the trials and tribulations of a group of firefighters from the East Bank Station. Under Fire looks set to be an ensemble cast show and from what we can gather, this will be a close look at the private and professional lives of the team of responders. There may be an overarching plot that runs through the series, with some big mistakes that have been made by the department during an event, that brings the station under the scrutiny of higher powers. With the station at risk, the team has to do everything they can to keep their station open.
Our opinion on the premise
As a tried and tested formula, if you are a fan of these sorts of shows then you will probably tune in, at least for the first episode. There are some slick-looking visuals in the trailer, so perhaps Under Fire will have an audience out there already, but judging from the trailer, there doesn’t seem to be any real unique hook for this show, so it looks like fans of this sort of thing will tune in, but there’s nothing really new on show just now to pull new viewers in.
