‘The Outpost’ Season 2 Preview
The lone survivor of a race called the “Blackbloods,” Talon (Jessica Green) lives in a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world where she was forced to master her supernatural powers and ally with a Queen who was in hiding in order to defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator. Tonight, The Outpost returns to the CW for its second season premiere as Talon braces for war having defeated Dred and gained control of the Outpost at the end of last season.
According to the network, “Talon delves deeper into demon summoning, while Gwynn (Imogen Waterhouse) recruits allies. The Prime Order trinity known as ‘The Three’ reveals mysterious powers as they send spies, assassins, and a devastating weapon to the Outpost. As Talon uncovers the legacy of her people, she must decide who to trust and separate her real friends from her enemies before the Prime Order attacks.”
The first three episodes of Season 2 are entitled “We Only Kill To Survive,” “This Is One Strange Town,” and “Not In This Kingdom.” All three episodes are directed by Marc Roskin and written by Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin
“If you are really into fantasy and can easily suspend disbelief, you might enjoy The Outpost. Despite its issues, there is a lot going on that might intrigue viewers,” wrote Stephanie Francis for Black Girl Nerds.
“The Outpost seems to promise enough mayhem, intrigue and burgeoning feminism to make for a satisfying enough summer run,” wrote Ed Bark for Uncle Barky.
Created and executive produced by Griffin and Faller, the series also stars Jake Stormoen (Extinct, Mythica), Imogen Waterhouse (Nocturnal Animals, Braid) and Anand Desai-Barochia (The Tiger Hunter, Emmerdale). Before The Outpost, Green starred a TV seriers documentary called Roman Empire as Cleopatra, in addition to guest-starring roles in Ash vs. Evil Dead and Dirty, Clean, & Inbetween.
