Amid the ongoing strikes, the highly anticipated second season of Outer Range has completed filming, however, it was not impacted by the actors' strike as filming wrapped in the first half of July.
‘Outer Range’ Season 2 began filming on March 14, 2023, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and also shoot in Las Vegas just like the first season. Season 2 has taken almost four months to officially wrap up the filming. As per our Production Insights, the filming was supposed to wrap up on June 26, 2023.
Meanwhile, the second season has expanded its cast by adding a few more actors. The new actors who will be part of the second season are Christian James, Megan West, Daniel Abeles, Kimberly Guerrero, and Monette Moio. Earlier, Charles Murray took over as showrunner from Brian Watkins for Season 2, however, Brian will continue as an executive producer.
Since the production time was of a shorter duration, we cannot confirm whether there will be any change in the number of episodes for Season 2, but surely we will find out when Amazon announces the premiere date. However, we still have plenty of time left before we get any news on the second season's premiere. The show involves a bit of CGI and special effects, but I don't think it should take more than six months of post-production. So considering all the factors, we will expect Outer Range Season 2 to release sometime in Spring 2024.
The first season of Outer Range stars Josh Brolin as Royal Abbott, Imogen Poots 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.
In Season 1, Royal Abbott, a Wyoming rancher, fighting for his land and family, 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. While the Abbott family copes with the disappearance of their daughter-in-law Rebecca, they are driven further to the cusp when a rival family, the Tillersons, tries to take over their land.
The first season of the neo-Western and sci-fi series ended with the reveal of Autumn's true identity, which made the series from a sci-fi drama to a mind-bending time-traveling thriller. We can expect the Second season to answer some of the most burning questions, like 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 that family who doesn't seem to do any wrong with Amy raises more questions about her dispute and hatred for Royal. It's not easy to predict whether Season 2 will dive into the future of Abbotts or the past, but surely Amy/Autumn will remain the focus along with Royal, who has also time traveled once.
Along with Watkins, executive producers are 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.
