During the regular television season, The CW added four new TV series, but cancelled two of them. The Outpost TV show is the only new series coming to the littlest network, this summer. As a fantasy drama, will it be a better fit than Valor and Life Sentence? Does the network even have the same ratings expectations during the summer months? Will The Outpost be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CW supernatural drama from creators Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin, The Outpost stars Jessica Green, Jake Stormoen, Anand Desai Barochia, Imogen Waterhouse, Michael Flynn, Robyn Malcolm, Andrew Howard, and Philip Brodie. The story centers on Talon (Green), the lone survivor of the “Blackbloods” race. When she was still a child, a ruthless mercenary gang slaughtered her entire village. Now that she has come of age, Talon decides to track her family’s murderers, all the way to a harsh and unruly fortress, at the edge of civilization. Along the way, she discovers she has a mysterious power, but she has to learn to keep it in check, if she’s going to save herself and the world.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
