What’s This TV Show About?
A psychological thriller streaming on the Amazon Prime Video paid subscription platform, Fortitude stars Richard Dormer, Sofie Gråbøl, Sienna Guillory, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Mia Jexen, Alexandra Moen, Luke Treadaway, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Edvin Endre, and Ken Stott. This TV series takes place in Fortitude, an international community in the Arctic, with inhabitants from many parts of the world. A gruesome murder and a dangerous pathogen are threatening the future of the town itself. In season two, a new body is discovered. Now, Eric (Haraldsson) must step up and lead this horrific investigation. Meanwhile, fisherman Michael Lennox (Quaid) is struggling to come to terms with his terminally ill wife and will do anything for a cure.
Unless Amazon releases streaming “ratings,” it is difficult to measure the success or failure of streaming TV shows like Fortitude. Critical acclaim and buzz is also important to services that rely on keeping viewers subscribed. In the US, Fortitude originally ran on the now defunct cable channel, Pivot. The series, however is a British production that airs on Sky Atlantic and Canada’s Super Channel, which defrays the cost for Amazon. I suspect if Sky renews Fortitude for a third season, Amazon will pick it up, too. Subscribe for free updates on Fortitude TV show cancellation and renewal news.
1/25 update: Sky Atlantic has renewed Fortitude and announced the series will end with season three. Details here. When Amazon makes an announcement, I will update this page.
