Outsiders Will Return For A Second Season

WGN America is continuing to make strong headway with its move into original scripted programming, with a second season renewal for Outsiders. After a strong reception for its first 13-episode season, which premiered in January, the drama is now confirmed as returning with a further 13 instalments next year.

Created by Peter Mattei, the show boasts Peter Tolan and Paul Giamatti among its executive producers. It weaves the fictional story of the Farrell clan an isolationist group that has long resided in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. As their way of life is threatened by coal corporations seeking to mine into their hill, the clan vows to protect their lifestyle which brings them into conflict with the residents of the nearby town of Blackburg. Internal power struggles set the clan on a dangerous path, while the local law enforcement officers must face their fear of this armed, determined group. Outsiders stars David Morse, Joe Anderson, Ryan Hurst, Kyle Gallner, Thomas Wright and Gillian Alexy, and its first season has included two episodes directed by Jon Amiel.

The renewal of Outsiders demonstrates the high level of confidence the network has in the show, as its first season still has five episodes to air. Viewers are currently in thrall of the bloodlust and violence of the Farrell clan’s patriarchal figure and as such, season two will almost certainly promise greater exploration of the tense relationships between the Farrells and the other local residents. 2017 should reveal all.
