Fox Lifeguard Drama Rescue: Hi-Surf, Starring Arielle Kebbel, Gets Additional Episodes for Next Season

High tide is going to last longer than we thought: Fox has ordered seven more episodes of its upcoming lifeguard drama Rescue: Hi-Surf, TVLine has learned. This brings the total order up to 19 episodes.

Rescue: Hi-Surf, which earned a series order at Fox last year and is set to debut during the 2024-25 TV season, “is an action-packed drama that follows the personal and professional lives of the heavy-water lifeguards who patrol and protect the North Shore of O’ahu — the most famous and dangerous stretch of coastline in the world,” the official description. “Each episode will feature these dedicated, heroic, and adrenaline-seeking first-responders saving lives in the difficult and often life-threatening conditions of Hawaii’s Seven Mile Miracle.”

The cast includes Arielle Kebbel (9-1-1, Ballers) as Emily “Em” Wright, the first female lieutenant in Ocean Safety history, as well as a record-setting paddler and surfer. Robbie Magasiva (Wentworth) plays captain Sonny Jennings, who’s mourning the death of his nephew, and Adam Demos (Sex/Life) plays Will Ready, a good-natured Australian surfer who’s ready for anything the ocean throws at him. Rounding out the ensemble are Kekoa Kekumano (The White Lotus), Alex Aiono (Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin) and Zoe Cipres (Roswell, New Mexico).
