‘The Outpost’ is an American fantasy-adventure drama television series that airs on The CW, and first premiered on July 10, 2018. It is produced by Syfy’s international channels for international broadcast. The show has been created by Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin.
The series revolves around a character called Talon who is the sole survivor of the Blackbloods, which is a race. Determined to find the people responsible for the death of her parents, she sets out on a journey. While tracking these people, she discovers her supernatural powers which she has to learn to harness.
Shows with quest motifs are always a strong point of attraction and this series is no different. When coupled with the presence of supernatural powers, it serves as an additional point of attraction. However, being somewhat of a fantasy series, the show was compared to some of the greatest in the genre like ‘Game of Thrones‘ and ‘Lord of the Rings‘. While I find this comparison to be slightly unfair, critics did not favor ‘The Outpost’, and said, “A featherweight fantasy with a few enticing features, The Outpost’s potential pleasures can’t quite overcome its cheap-looking production design”.
The Outpost Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of ‘The Outpost’ stars Jessica Green of ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead‘ fame as Talon, Jake Stormoen as Captain Garret Spears, Imogen Waterhouse as Gwynn Calkussar or Princess Rosmund, and Anand Desai-Barochia as Janzo. These are supposedly the most important characters of the show along with Andrew Howard as Gate Marshal Cedric Wythers and Robyn Malcolm in the role of Elinor. There are also some supporting characters who add a degree of richness to the show.
In the upcoming season, most of the main characters are set to return but it remains to be seen if any new characters are going to be added. They would definitely make things interesting as Talon continues her quest for revenge and justice.
