Frontier Renewed By Netflix For A Second Season
Although the show won’t hit American TV screens until next year, Frontier is set to debut on Discovery Canada on November 6th. Confident in the strengh of the series, the network has given it’s blessing to Netflix’s plans for a second season, pledging to work with the streaming service on future episodes before the first season premieres on Canadian television:
The drama is told from multiple perspectives and set in a world where business negotiations are frequently resolved with hatchet fights. Frontier will also explore the delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans that can spark bloody conflicts.
Momoa, who will return for season two, stars as Declan Harp, an ambitious, confident, charismatic and untamed man with a reputation for being a ruthless trader, driven by lust and revenge. Landon Liboiron, Alun Armstrong, Allan Hawco, Jessica Matten, Shawn Doyle and Zoe Boyle round out the cast.
The drama was created by Peter Blackie and Rob Blackie (Republic of Doyle). Jeff Fierson and Brad Peyton (San Andreas) are on board to exec produce, with the latter set to return to direct the season two premiere. Alex Patrick and John Vatcher (Republic of Doyle) are also set to exec produce.
