Jason Momoa’s Netflix ‘Frontier’ Already Renewed for Season 2
Whether ripping throats out or tossing Batman against the wall, Jason Momoa does not seem like someone whose bad side you’d venture to be on. Netflix seems to be erring on the side of caution in that regard, renewing Momoa’s 18th century fur-trapping drama Frontier for Season 2 before Season 1 even hits streaming.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the Discovery Canada series will return for Season 2 with Momoa at its center, ahead of its first season’s November 6 debut. Netflix itself will premiere the series at an unspecified date in 2017.
Frontier is directed by San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton, and created by Rob and Peter Blackie. Chronicling the chaotic and violent struggle of wealth and power in the North American fur trade, the logline for Netflix’s Frontier reads:
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 takes the lead role of Declan Harp, described as “an ambitious, confident, charismatic and untamed man with a reputation for being a ruthless trader, driven by lust and revenge,” just like on my business cards. The new series also stars Braveheart star Alun Armstrong, Hemlock Grove alum Landon Liboiron, Downton Abbey resident Zoe Boyle, as well as Allan Hawco, Shawn Doyle and Canadian newcomer Jessica Matten.
Frontier has no full trailer as of yet, but check out the first photos, and stay tuned for more.
