It’s been over a year and a half since the last episode of Tacoma FD aired on truTV, and there was a significant drop in ratings in season three. With all of the changes going on at Warner Bros. Discovery, are this little comedy’s days numbered? Will Tacoma FD be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.
A workplace comedy series, the Tacoma FD TV show stars co-creators Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, with Marcus Henderson, Gabriel Hogan, Hassie Harrison, and Chris Avila. The sitcom unfolds in a firehouse in one of the rainiest cities in the USA — Tacoma, Washington. Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme) lead the eclectic crew that includes Granny (Henderson), Ike (Hogan), Lucy (Harrison), and a new recruit, Mickleberry (Avila). These firefighters keep themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries, and no shortage of bizarre emergency calls. Guests include Tony Danza, David Arquette, Joey Pantoliano, Paul Soter, Jim Rash, Jon Rudnitsky, Maria Russell, and Jamie Kaler.
