The latest season of the award-winning show will explore what happens when a society starts to lose hope, and how this triggers all sorts of actions that can lead to an increased demand for emergency services.
The firefighters and paramedics of Los Angeles County Fire Department’s elite Rescue Squad must not only battle the aftermath of both human-made and natural disasters but also contend with a sceptical public who doesn’t always trust their instincts or procedures. In season five, they’ll be tested like never before.
“It’s a really difficult time to be on the frontlines of emergency services,” said showrunner Michael Brandt. “The public is starting to lose faith in us, and sometimes that can turn people into something they’re not. Sometimes it makes them self-destructive.”
Brandt tells Variety that the show will explore a new “sense of urgency” this season. “It’s not just about fires and earthquakes, it’s also about people who feel like they’re running out of time in their lives,” he said.
The pressure on these heroes comes from more than just public perception; many are dealing with personal tragedies. “It’s been a really difficult year for them,” said Angela Bassett, who plays Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Brenda Leigh Johnson. “They’re all in emotional turmoil.”
After season four’s cliffhanger ending, the fifth season begins with a public debate about whether or not to take an injured baby from its parents. What follows is one of many life-or-death decisions that will be faced by both first responders and those they are sworn to serve in real-time as we follow their personal and professional lives.
Series creator Ryan Murphy explains, “The stakes are higher than ever, the pressure is greater because they’re fighting to save more lives in a world that has started circling the drain.” In season five of this Emmy-winning hit drama series from FOX, these heroic firefighters find themselves up against the most unimaginable disaster of their lives with the firehouse under siege by an enemy from within.
