What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the National Geographic cable channel, Barkskins is based on the novel of the same name by Annie Proulx. The show stars David Thewlis, Marcia Gay Harden, Aneurin Barnard, James Bloor, Christian Cooke, David Wilmot, Thomas M. Wright, Tallulah Haddon, Kaniehtiio (Tiio) Horn, Lily Sullivan, and Zahn McClarnon. The series examines the mysterious massacre of settlers in the vast and unforgiving wilds of 1690s New France. This event threatens to throw the region into all-out war. Likely suspects abound – the English, the Hudson’s Bay Company and a band of Kanien’kehá:ka (Iroquois) possibly in league with the English looking to drive the French from the territory. But, who or what brought these settlers to such a tragic end?
Season One Ratings
Will National Geographic cancel or renew Barkskins for season two? The ratings have been okay but, the channel doesn’t air many original scripted series so it’s difficult to know what they consider to be a success. The series’ creator wants to make a second season so, we’ll have to wait and see if Nat Geo agrees. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
