Renewed Or Cancelled?
Under Fire is the latest Belgium series on Netflix, revolving around East Bank Station and the firefighters within. There’s plenty of drama and romance throughout, with some nice little twists and turns too. If you’ve finished watching this, you’re probably wondering if another season has been green-lit. Here’s what we know:
What is Under Fire about?
East Bank Station is our setting and we learn early on that the fire department is supposed to be the best in the country. Unfortunately, the firm has a bad PR image so a new social media liaison is brought on to try and change that. Furthermore, Patrick – the current lieutenant – is promoted up to Captain, leaving the position open to rookie Dominique.
It’s immediately clear that she and Orlando (the second in command) do not share the same values and early on the duo clash over the best way of tackling different incidents.
Complicating matters further are the supporting players, although to be fair each firefighter has a chance to take the spotlight over the 10 episodes. There’s Nina, a brave and determined firefighter who’s plagued with issues at home. These involve fellow firefighter Steve, who has a drinking problem and hasn’t been showing up at work. This really takes on a dramatic turn around the middle of the series, and Steve’s presence is a constant thorn in the side of East Bank for most of the run-time.
There’s also Vincent, who has his own rivalry with Orlando, centering around an assistant exam that Dominique suggests Vincent take. Gio starts off as abrupt and cocky before being faced with some harrowing choices, while Tom – the new guy at East Bank – has more than a few secrets lurking away in his past.

Has Under Fire been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Under Fire (Onder Vurr) has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s format, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate.
With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Under Fire has had a pretty mixed reception and this is ultimately one of those soapy dramas that could very easily run for another season.
Taking everything into consideration, we’re predicting that Under Fire will not be renewed for a second season. There’s definitely potential here but given how crowded this field is, it’ll be surprising to see this one return.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. The conclusion does open things up for a follow-up though, should Netflix decide to give the nod toward a sequel.
If this one is renewed, we could well see the firefighters return with more drama. Orlando could also return to work too. For now though, it’s way too early to be casting judgments over what may happen.
We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
