Outer Range trailer: Josh Brolin headlines Prime Video’s Western sci-fi series


Amazon Prime Video has released an Outer Range trailer that will have you shouting at the heavens above for answers to some of life’s most mysterious questions. The trailer stars Josh Brolin as Royal Abbott, a Wyoming rancher who discovers an “unfathomable mystery” at the edge of the wilderness. A thrilling fable with hints of wry humor and supernatural mystery, Outer Range examines how we grapple with the unknown.

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 features a stellar cast, which includes Imogen Poots (I Kill Giants), Lili Taylor (Perry Mason), Tamara Podemski (Coroner, Unsettled), Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick), Tom Pelphrey (Ozark, Banshee), Noah Reid (Schitt’s Creek), Shaun Sipos (Krypton), Isabel Arraiza (The Little Things, Pearson), Olive Abercrombie (The Haunting of Hill House), and Will Patton (Yellowstone).

The first two episodes of Outer Range will mosey onto Amazon Prime Video on April 15, with two more episodes arriving each week. The first season will warp your brain for eight episodes.

What do you think of the Outer Range trailer? Being a major fan of both Brolin and Poots, I’ll definitely be tuning in. Is it me or is there too much good television these days? It’s no wonder that I hardly ever have time for movies. Oh well, bring it on!
