Poster for Outer Range: Season 1

Josh Brolin leads this American small-town suspense series as Royal Abbott, a rancher fighting for his land and family who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming's wilderness. Co-stars Lili Taylor and Imogen Poots. More

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: Season 1 | Reviews

As well as being arguably the best screen use of Josh Brolin yet, this heady neo-western knows how to keep viewers hooked with an original mystery while still honouring the heritage of the western genre.

It’s Yellowstone meets The Twilight Zone in the guise of a thrilling, thought-provoking western sci-fi that looks set to reward close attention.

Even as the soapy interpersonal stories ramp up, there’s a nagging feeling Outer Range never goes far enough.

Josh Brolin and Imogen Poots are both impressive, but this show plods along like Twin Peaks without the humour.

Flashes of dark humour and just plain surrealness keep the show from stalling, but it's a slow burn with many burning questions.
