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 not renewed Outer Range for season 2. Given the respectable ratings over the weeks, and the mystery box nature of this series, it’ll be interesting to see if they actually do renew this for a follow-up.
Amazon have a pretty good track record with renewals, although mystery shows like this in general have a poor track record across the industry. Everyone is after the next LOST and as we saw during the mid 00’s, it’s not easy to find one that grips in quite the same way.
There is a possibility though that Outer Range could be renewed, depending on how many viewers this manages to attract and how fans react to the end. We’re going out on a limb here and predict that Outer Range will be renewed.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Amazon Prime have not green-lit a sequel. However, given Amazon have labelled this as “the first season”, one could use semantics to argue Amazon have another season up their sleeve.
For now though, we’re under the impression that it’s only a matter of time and that there will be a season 2. However, we will aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
