‘Outer Range’ Canceled By Amazon After 2 Seasons

Prime Video has opted not to renew sci-fi/neo-western drama Outer Range, starring Josh Brolin, for a third season. The news comes almost two months after the seven-episode second season of the series from showrunner Charles Murray was released May 16.

It follows solid early US ratings data, with the release of the new season propelling Outer Range to #3 on the Nielsen Streaming Originals chart for the week of May 20 with 476M hours viewed and #8 for the week of May 27 with 314M.

Outer Range followed rancher Royal Abbott (Brolin) who is fighting for his land and family after discovering an unfathomable phenomenon at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness — a dark void. The mystery surrounding the void on the west pasture of the ranch deepens in Season 2, as Royal and his wife Cecelia (Lili Taylor) struggle to keep their family together in the aftermath of their granddaughter’s disappearance.

In addition to Brolin and Taylor, Imogen Poots, Tamara Podemski, Lewis Pullman, Tom Pelphrey, Noah Reid, Shaun Sipos, Isabel Arraiza, Olive Abercrombie and Will Patton also starred. Christian James, Megan West, Daniel Abeles, Kimberly Guerrero and Monette Moio recurred in Season 2.
