68 Whiskey airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Paramount Network. In the all-new January 22 episode, Roback, Davis, and Petrocelli make their way back to base through the treacherous desert; Roback makes a grand gesture to help out Alvarez, complicating things with Durkin; and Holloway takes a special interest in one of her patients.

Blending intense drama with irreverent humor, 68 Whiskey follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage.” Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices, and, occasionally, a profound sense of purpose to carry them through.

68 Whiskey stars Sam Keeley, Jeremy Tardy, Gage Golightly, Cristina Rodlo, Beth Riesgraf, Lamont Thompson, Nicholas Coombe, and Derek Theler.
