The CW has handed out a second season renewal to fantasy series The Outpost, which hails from Dean Devlin and his independent production company Electric Entertainment. The show’s second season is expected to premiere in 2019.
Through a wide-ranging multi-territory deal between NBCUniversal International Networks and Electric Entertainment, SYFY UK holds first window rights to The Outpost. It has been a ratings success for the genre channel, with episodes averaging a consolidated average audience of just under 200k viewers.
The Outpost follows Talon, a strong female hero and the lone survivor of a race called “Blackbloods.” Years after her entire village is destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilised world, as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey to this outpost, Talon discovers she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.
The drama series is produced by Electric Entertainment and stars Jessica Green (Ash Vs Evil Dead), Jake Stormoen (Extinct), Andrew Howard (Hell On Wheels), Anand Desai-Barochia (Lake Mead), Robyn Malcolm (Hostiles) and Kristian Nairn (Game Of Thrones). The series was created by Kynan Griffin and Jason Faller. Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner serve as executive producers alongside Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson and Arrowstorm Entertainment’s Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin.
