Fire Country has turned into a massive hit at CBS, with the cast helping to bring huge ratings for the network.

Recently, along with NCIS getting named the top-rated drama on television, Fire Country became the top-rated new drama.

Many people on Fire Country have been on other CBS shows over the years, whether in a starring role or in a guest-star appearance.

Max Thieriot, who plays Bode Donovan on Fire Country, previously starred as Clay Spenser on SEAL Team.

Actress Diane Farr, who plays Bode’s mom Sharon Leone, guest-starred on CSI and CSI: Miami before starring on Numb3rs as Megan Reeves.

And veteran actor Billy Burke, who plays Bode’s father, Vince Leone, starred in Zoo for CBS after years of playing the father of Bella Swan in the Twilight films.

Fire Country stars who were on NCIS

Before playing Manny Perez on Fire Country, Kevin Alejandro appeared in a 2006 episode of NCIS called Driven (Season 4, Episode 11). In that installment, he played the character Jamie Jones.

Manny was also in a 2005 episode of JAG called Fit for Duty, where he played Corporal Jude Dominick.

Stephanie Arcila, who plays Manny’s daughter Gabriela Perez, was also on NCIS. She played Danielle in a 2018 episode called Keep Your Enemies Closer (Season 15, Episode 15).

And they aren’t the only ones, as actor Zach Tinker was on multiple shows within the NCISVerse before he started playing new firefighter Collin O’Reilly.

Zach played Tyler in two 2021 episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles (Season 12, Episodes 9 and 10) and also appeared as David West in a 2018 episode of NCIS called Boom (Season 16, Episode 3).
