Created by Brian Watkins, “Outer Ranger” is an American sci-fi mystery thriller drama TV series that was launched on April 15, 2022, on Amazon Prime Video. It stars Josh Brolin, Lili Taylor, Tamara Podemski, Tom Pelphrey, Imogen Poots, Lewis Pullman, Noah Reid, Shaun Sipos, Isabel Arraiza, and Olive Abercrombie.
When Outer Range debuted, it generally received mixed responses from the audience and critics. So as of now, it’s unclear if the series will return with its second run although fans of the show are very much looking forward to how the story progresses.
Here’s what you need to know about season 2 of Outer Range’s release date, cast, and more.
Will there be a Season 2 of Outer Range?
As per the website’s statement it reads: “Outer Range‘s plethora of subplots threatens to get sucked into a wormhole of ponderousness, but at least this sci-fi Western is anything but plain.” This somewhat indicates that there’s a chance of renewal. Given how the network has renewed plenty of its shows, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Amazon decides to renew Outer Range for season 2.
Nevertheless, actor Josh Brolin in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter when asked about the possibility of a second season he said, “Who knows, man? I mean, truly. We make all this shit up after the fact.” He states, “If we continue this thing, what’s the relationship then with Imogen’s character, Autumn? Where did Amy go? Where did Perry go? Will he come back? So it’s a great setup. Season One is a great, fun, wild setup.”
He continued, “Like I said, it’s kind of taken on a life of its own, so things changed. When it first got set up at Amazon, Brian didn’t know a lot. He had an idea, but I think it was really based on those first two scripts for the first two episodes. And from then on, it got broken open by a plethora of people. So I think he had some really, really wonderful ideas that were opened up by a few people.”
Outer Range Season 2 Release Date: When is it?
Currently, there isn’t much information concerning the second installment as the show is still awaiting its renewal confirmation from the network although we’re optimistic about the show’s future.
So if renewed later this year, fans can expect the new season to hit their screen in mid-2023 at the earliest.

Outer Ranger Season 2 Plot: What to expect?
The exact plot details for the season are yet to be revealed. However, it is expected that the upcoming season will uncover a more compelling storyline with dramatic twists and turns as in the first season’s finale.
In the first season, we witnessed that Royal gets agitated and tries to get rid of Autumn but instead gets shattered after discovering that she has used somebody. Formerly, the Abbott kin keeps on investigating the outer areas of space. With the first season ending on a cliffhanger, we can only assume that the story would continue from where it ended and most probably we’d also find out about Autumn and Abbott’s kin in the next season.
The Abbott kin will be the main focus of the second season’s storyline as the other members try to unfold the paradox of its existence.
