Renewed Or Cancelled?
Outer Range is a moody, atmospheric neo-noir thriller. At times the show does have a tendency of meandering off in different directions, but the central mystery is exciting, gripping and utterly enthralling.
What is Outer Range Season 1 about?
The story takes place on a large expanse of land in Wyoming, US, split by a dividing fence between two rival farms. The Abbott family have been on this farm for generations but when Royal uncovers a bizarre mystery on the western expanse of his land, he’s unwittingly sucked into a sci-fi bending plot that changes his life forever.
This is intertwined with a brewing rivalry between the Abbott and Tillerson families. Royal’s sons, Perry and Rhett, end up fighting with Wayne Tillerson’s boys at a bar that night, with Trevor and Perry trading blows. When tragedy strikes, an investigation is launched against the Abbott family. Fronting this is Sherriff Joy, who becomes a more central part of this story as the episodes tick by.
These two intertwined storylines are further complicated by the arrival of a mysterious woman called Autumn. She convinces Royal to let her stay on the land, far away from their house.
Has Outer Range been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Amazon have renewed Outer Range for season 2! Given the respectable ratings over the weeks, and the mystery box nature of this series, that’s great news for those who have stuck with this and want to see a resolution.
Amazon have a pretty good track record with renewals, although mystery shows like this in general have a poor track record across the industry – just ask Night Sky! Everyone is after the next LOST and as we saw during the mid 2000’s, it’s not easy to find one that grips in quite the same way.
We predicted that Amazon would renew this one and we’re delighted to see the streaming giants do just that!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Amazon Prime have only just green-lit a sequel. However, given Amazon have labelled this as “the first season”, one could use semantics to argue Amazon always had another season up their sleeve.
For now though, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for us with season 2.
