The neo-western series Outer Range has just received a second season renewal from Prime Video. Josh Brolin will return as the Wyoming rancher, whose life is thrown into turmoil when he uncovers something quite unnatural on his farm. The series was created by Brian Watkins, but it looks like he isn’t going to return for the second season.
Luke Cage‘s Charles Murray is taking over as showrunner, which is part of his deal with Amazon Studios and will join the production to further explore the Abbotts’ struggle with some supernatural and local troubles. It’s unclear who from the original cast will return, which included Lili Taylor, Lewis Pullman, Tamara Podemski, Tom Pelphrey, Shaun Sipos, Noah Reid, Isabel Arraiza, Olive Abercombie, Will Patton, and Imogen Poots.
Watkins is still involved with the production, as he’ll remain as executive producer on these series. There’s no word on why exactly they decided to move forward with a new showrunner in its second season but it’ll be interesting to see what Charles Murray will bring to the table with his talented work on shows like Luke Cage, Sons of Anarchy, and more.
