There is a Fire Country spinoff in the works at CBS, but it still has to go through a couple of stages of development before it's a sure thing. According to Deadline, there will be a "planted" spinoff episode in the flagship's upcoming second season. Baccarin will guest star as Mickey, "a Sheriff’s Deputy for fifteen years who knows every corner of Edgewater," the fictional Northern California town in which Fire Country is based, "and every one of its inhabitants." Her episode's reception could influence whether CBS moves ahead with the spinoff idea.

CBS hasn't released any plot details, but we know the spinoff would star Baccarin as a sheriff and that we'll be introduced to her character in Fire Country's second season.
