Season 6

Season 6 opens with Tommy shaken by his vision of the afterlife. Tommy comes home to discover that Janet has been relying on Franco during his absence, and finds their newfound closeness suspicious.

Uncle Teddy confronts Tommy, insisting he utilize this second chance to make things right. Tommy begins reevaluating his priorities both at home and at the station, and after rescuing a priest from a fire, Tommy seeks out his guidance.

Janet and Tommy's relationship is at another crossroads, both torn between putting the past behind them and whether Tommy can really change.

Meanwhile, Feinberg informs the gang that due to the recession, the Mayor needs to close down some firehouses. Given the house's renegade reputation, they're number one on the chopping block, and he insists he's not going down with them.

Damien, still anxious for his first save, finds himself questioning his place in the Gavin firefighting legacy, while Sheila continues pressuring Tommy to talk to Damien about his role in the brotherhood.

Colleen has started drinking more since Tommy's shooting, causing concern that she's following in Tommy's footsteps. Black Shawn stands by her, and further inserts himself into the family.

Garrity is approached by an ailing firefighter and enlists Mike's assistance in fulfilling his friend's last wishes.

Rescue Me stars Denis Leary, John Scurti, Daniel Sunjata, Steven Pasquale, Michael Lombardi, Callie Thorne, Andrea Roth and Adam Ferrara.

The series was created by Leary and Peter Tolan, who along with Jim Serpico serve as executive producers. The show is produced by Apostle, Dreamworks Television and The Cloudland Company in association with Sony Pictures Television.
