Fire Country didn’t take long to win fans over, and part of what makes the show so engaging is its willingness to take out characters. There’s a genuine sense of unpredictability that accompanies each new episode, and we’re excited to see where things go in season 2.
That being said, the events of season 1 suggest that a few notable characters will not be coming back to put out fires. Here’s a rundown of the people who definitely aren’t coming back for season 2 of the CBS drama.
Did Rebecca Lee die on Fire Country?
Rebecca Lee (Fiona Rene) died in the episode “False Promises.” She was able to rescue Eve (Jules Latimer) from a falling tree, but was unable to get out of the way before getting caught under it. The team was able to get her out eventually, but the injuries that Rebecca sustained proved critical. She bled internally, and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

It was one of the most shocking moments in the entire season, and served to drive home just how dangerous life on the job can be. Rebecca also used her dying wish to help Bode’s mother, which proved that she was as selfless as she was brave.
Did Meg die on Fire Country?
Meg (Hilary Jardine) was a bit less selfless. She was a civilian who accidentally killed two teens in a hit-and-run, and attempted to hide out in the woods as a result. The incident led to her suffering from compartment syndrome, which is a swelling in the leg that cuts off circulation.
Gabriela (Stephanie Arcila) performs a fasciotomy, or a cut into the leg to relieve the swelling, but she’s unaware that Meg is also suffering from internal bleeding, and the hit-and-run culprit dies as a result of the latter. Suffice to say, she will not be coming back for season 2.
Did Riley Leone die on Fire Country?
The most notable, and arguably the most tragic instance of a character dying in season. Riley Leone (Jade Pettyjohn) is the younger sister of Bode (Max Theriot), and while she technically died before the events of the series premiere, her death via car crash was depicted in the episode “The Fresh Prince of Edgewater.”
The episode did a lot to flesh the character out, and allow us to develop the same emotional bond with her that Bode and the rest of his family had. Because the crucial event in her life was already shown to us, though, we imagine that we won’t be seeing more of Riley in season 2.
