‘Frontier’ is a Canadian historical period drama that airs on the Discovery Channel in Canada and is available internationally on Netflix. The show first premiered on November 6, 2016. It has been co-created by Brad Peyton, famous for ‘San Andreas‘ and ‘Rampage’, along with Rob and Peter Blackie.
This action and adventure show, that has elements of a western, chronicles the North American fur trade of the 1700s. It follows Declan Harp played by Jason Momoa, a part-Irish, part-Native American outlaw who is campaigning to breach the Hudson’s Bay Company’s monopoly on the fur trade in Canada.
If you have missed Jason Momoa who made his mark as Khal Drogo on ‘Game of Thrones‘ and want to see him in the forefront, participating in all the action, then you will love this series. The sets are designed meticulously to give the show an authentic feel. Naturally, it is well liked by audiences. However, critics have been a little close-fisted in their reviews, saying, “Jason Momoa’s powerhouse performance as Declan Harp is ultimately weighed down by Frontier’s often sluggish storytelling”.
Frontier Cast: Who is in it?
‘Frontier’ has had a sprawling cast over the seasons, to show how vast the fur trade really is, and how many powers are at play in this network. We have seen several characters appear and leave as the story has progressed.
In season 3, we see Jason Momoa, who now plays Aquaman in DCEU, return as Declan Harp. He is joined by Landon Liboiron who plays Michael Smith, and Zoe Boyle as Grace Emberly. Other actors who were back for the third season include Jessica Matten as Sokanon, Evan Jonigkeit as Captain Chesterfield, Shawn Doyle as Samuel Grant, Zahn Mclarnon as Samoset, Lyla Porter-Follows as Clenna Dolan, Diana Bentley as Imogen, Greg Bryk as Cobbs Pond, Breanne Hill as Mary, Paul Fauteux as Jean-Marc Rivard and William Belleau as Dimanche.
In the upcoming season, we expect the main cast to return, and they might be joined by some new faces, who are bound to make things interesting for Declan, our heroic disruptor.
