“Tacoma FD,” a series on TruTV about a group of unruly firefighters stationed in one of the rainiest cities in North America, is one of the funniest workplace sitcoms I’ve ever seen.
Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, who plays Chief Terry McConkey and Captain Eddie Penisi on the show, worked together to make “Tacoma FD.” They are both parts of the well-known comedy group Broken Lizard (“Super Troopers,” “Super Troopers 2”). Heffernan’s cousin Bill, a real-life firefighter in New Haven, Connecticut, and a technical advisor on the show, gave the show some of its ideas (via TV Line). One reason “Tacoma FD” has been so popular is that it tries to be as real as possible.
Season 3 of “Tacoma FD” will end in December 2021, so it’s not too early to think about Season 4. “Tacoma FD” fans are glad that TruTV hasn’t kept them waiting. Here’s what we know about Season 4 of “Tacoma FD.”
When Will Season 4 of Tacoma FD Premiere?
Season 3 of “Tacoma FD” aired in late 2021, so we’ve had to wait a while to see our firefighter friends again. But we have a feeling that we’ll be going back to that rainy city soon. Deadline said that the fourth season of “Tacoma FD” will return in November 2021.
After that, it was hard to find news for a while, but in September 2022, the actress who plays firefighter Lucy McConky, Hassie Harrison, posted a selfie on Instagram that looks like it was taken on the set of “Tacoma FD” with her co-stars Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme.
Harrison wrote with the picture, “We just finished the fourth season of “Tacoma FD!” I think this could be the best season we’ve had so far. Can’t wait for you all to see what we’ve been cooking up!” With this information, it’s likely that “Tacoma FD” will come out in early 2023.
What is the Plot of Season 4 of Tacoma FD?
“Tacoma FD” is an episode-based sitcom, so most of its episodes don’t have stories that continue from week to week. The two-part firefighters’ ball episode from Season 3 is an exception.
Most of the episodes are instead self-contained stories about what goes on at Firehouse 24. During Season 3, episodes ranged from Chief McConkey looking for a new office chair to a pickleball tournament for the whole firehouse.
Season 4 should feel a little different than Season 3, that’s for sure. Since the third season was shot during a quarantine, most of the episodes had to take place inside the firehouse. Heffernan told UPI, “We were able to really get into a lot of the characters and how much fun they can have in the station.”
“We had to do it, but it turned out to be a good thing for us.” With the US hopefully getting back to something like how it was before the pandemic, “Tacoma FD” might be able to leave the firehouse a bit more often and go out into the world in Season 4.
Who Stars in Season 4 of Tacoma FD?
Most likely, “Tacoma FD” will bring back the same core group of actors who have helped make the show a success so far. This includes Kevin Heffernan as Chief Terry McConky, Steve Lemme as Captain Eddie Penisi, Marcus Henderson as paramedic Granfield “Granny” Smith, Eugene Cordero as firefighter Andy Myawani, Gabriel Hogan as firefighter Ike Crystal, Hassie Harrison as McConky’s daughter Lucy McConky, who was the first woman to join the firehouse, and Suzy Nakamura as Tacoma city councilwoman and frequent firehouse foe Linda Price
It’s also likely that the fourth season of “Tacoma FD” will have some well-known comedians as guest stars. Martin Starr (from “Party Down”), David Koechner (from “Anchorman”), Bobby Moynihan (from “Saturday Night Live”), Whitney Cummings (from “Whitney”), and Will Sasso (from “Mad TV”) have all been on the show in the past. It’s still not clear who might show up this season, though.
Where to View Previous Tacoma FD Seasons?
Not Comedy Central, but truTV is one of the best places to watch live-action scripted comedy on cable TV. In the 1990s, the network was called CourtTV and showed live trial footage and shows about the law. In the 2000s, it changed its name to Tru and started airing reality TV shows, which were popular at the time.
The channel changed its focus again in the middle of the 2010s when it became known as a comedy network, says TheWrap. With a nod to its past as a place for nonfiction TV, the renamed truTV became the home of several comedy shows with a faux-documentary or real-life element, like “I’m Sorry,” “Billy on the Street,” “Adam Ruins Everything,” and “Tacoma FD,” which looks like a mockumentary but is actually a mostly scripted but very loosely put together single-camera sitcom about life in a fire.
As of November 2022, you can watch all 37 episodes of “Tacoma FD” on a number of digital platforms. The show can be watched on truTV’s apps and on HBO Max.
