It is not usually good news that it takes too long to know the future of a series, since it usually ends up being cancelled. Luckily, that hasn’t been the case with ‘Outer Range’, as Amazon just announce its renewal for a second season. Of course, there is also bad news, because Brian Watkinscreator of this science fiction work and also showrunner of the first batch of episodes, abandons the ship.
Everything indicates that Watkins’ departure has had to be key to how long it has taken Amazon to make its decision on ‘Outer Range’ known, since the renewal has been accompanied by the signing of charles murray (‘Luke Cage’) to be the new showrunner.
Released on April 15, ‘Outer Range’ tells the story of Royal Abbott, a rancher who finds a temporary hole in his land. All this coincides with a lawsuit and the arrival on their land of a young woman who may not be who she says she is.
Josh Brolin, Imogen Poots, Lewis Pullman, Tom Pelphrey, Lili Taylor and Will Patton They are the great protagonists of a series that left many fronts open at the end of its first season. Let’s hope that Watkins made it clear how he wanted to continue the story and that Murray’s arrival does not mean that he now starts from scratch without knowing very well where he has gotten himself.
