Outer Range: trailer

Full trailer for the "neo-Western" with supernatural elements premiering next week.

Prime Video has released the official trailer for Outer Range, its upcoming neo-Western starring Josh Brolin.

The first season will consist of eight episodes (“and many surprising twists”), with two episodes premiering every week starting Friday, April 15.

Outer Range centres on Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin), a rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness. Described as a thrilling Western family saga with hints of wry humour and supernatural mystery, the series examines how we grapple with the unknown.

The cast also includes Imogen Poots (I Know This Much is True), Lili Taylor (Perry Mason), Tamara Podemski (Four Sheets to the Wind), Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick), Tom Pelphrey (Ozark), Noah Reid (Schitt’s Creek), Shaun Sipos (Krypton), Isabel Arraiza (The Little Things), Olive Abercrombie (The Haunting of Hill House), and Will Patton (Yellowstone).

At the onset of the series, the Abbotts are coping with the disappearance of daughter-in-law Rebecca. They are pushed further to the brink when the Tillersons (the gaudy owners of the neighboring profit-driven ranch) make a play for their land. An untimely death in the community sets off a chain of tension-filled events, and seemingly small-town, soil-bound troubles come to a head with the arrival of a mysterious black void in the Abbotts’ west pasture. Wild revelations unfold as Royal fights to protect his family; through his eyes, we begin to see how time contains secrets held in the past and unsettling mysteries foreshadowed. 

Outer Range comes from creator and executive producer Brian Watkins, with executive producers Zev Borow, Heather Rae, Josh Brolin, Robin Sweet, Lawrence Trilling, Amy Seimetz, Tony Krantz, and Plan B Entertainment for Amazon Studios. Executive producers for Plan B Entertainment are Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Brad Pitt.

Friday, April 15 on Prime Video.

  1. Outer Range does look somewhat like the Rockwell TV show in concept but with a better veteran cast. If this series is done well there is plenty of scope for developing an enjoyable screenplay with the potential for a 3-5 season run. Sci-fi fans should keep their fingers crossed however as this genre has produced some disappointing efforts in recent years.
