Amazon’s ‘Outer Range’ Season 2 Release Date, Plot & Other Updates
Outer Range’ Season 2 Confirmed to Begin Filming
Amazon’s neo-Western and sci-fi series, ‘Outer Range,’ has been confirmed to begin filming its second season on March 14, 2023. The first season of the show premiered in April 2022 and was renewed for a second season in October 2022. The filming schedule for season 2 will take more than three months to officially wrap up on June 26, 2023. The episode count for the second season has not been confirmed.
The first season of the show followed the story of Royal Abbott, a Wyoming rancher, fighting for his land and family, who discovers a mysterious black void in the pasture following the arrival of a woman named Autumn, a drifter with a connection to Abbott’s ranch. The second season of the show is likely to focus on Autumn and why she concealed her identity from her own family.
Charles Murray has taken over as showrunner for Season 2, replacing Brian Watkins, who will continue as an executive producer. The first season ended with the reveal of Autumn’s true identity, turning the series from a sci-fi drama into a mind-bending time-traveling thriller. The second season is expected to answer some of the most burning questions from the previous season, including where did Amy go, and how did she return as Autumn? Why Autumn didn’t reveal her true identity to Royal or any of her family members? The fact that she is part of the family that doesn’t seem to do any wrong with Amy raises more questions about her dispute and hatred for Royal.
Cast Members and Characters
Josh Brolin stars as Royal Abbott, while Imogen Poots stars as Autumn (Abbott), Lili Taylor as Cecilia Abbott, Tom Pelphrey as Perry Abbott, Lewis Pullman as Rhett Abbott, Olive Abercrombie as Amy Abbott, Kristen Connolly as Rebecca Abbott, Tamara Podemski as Deputy Sheriff Joy Hawk, Noah Reid as Billy Tillerson, Shaun Sipos as Luke Tillerson, and Will Patton as Wayne Tillerson. The second season is expected to focus on Autumn and Royal, who has also time-traveled once.
Release Date Speculation
Seeing the production schedule, the second season will be premiere-ready by the end of 2023, but it seems unlikely that Amazon will release it this year. So, fans can expect Outer Range Season 2 to release sometime in the first half of 2024 on Prime Video.
In addition to Watkins, executive producers for the show include Brolin, Zev Borow, Heather Rae, Tony Krantz, and Plan B Entertainment for Amazon Studios. Dede Gardner, Ernest McNealey, Jeremy Kleiner, and Brad Pitt are executive producers for Plan B. With the confirmation of the filming schedule for season 2, fans of the show can look forward to more mind-bending sci-fi and Western drama in the future.
