Outer Range Season 2 Review: A Mind-Bending Journey Through Time

Outer Range Season 2 Review


Outer Range Season 2 continues its enigmatic journey across crossing timelines, familial relationships, and a mysterious hole that defies both space and time. If you enjoyed the first season’s mix of neo-Western grit and science fiction intrigue, prepare for an even crazier journey.

Far out in the Wyoming woods stands a yawning abyss known as the hole. Swirling with energy, it acts as a portal through time, expelling those who fall into its obsidian abyss. The Abbott Family Ranch protects this mystery, and their lives are forever intertwined with its secrets.

As Season 2 begins, the Abbotts deal with the fallout from last season’s stampede. Granddaughter Amy is missing, matriarch Cecilia questions her religion, and Royal, the stoic patriarch (played flawlessly by Josh Brolin), watches his family fall apart. Meanwhile, some characters are transported in time, their emotional wounds resonating through centuries.

Outer Range employs time travel as a metaphorical lens. The hole has brought Royal’s history from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, and it haunts him. The Tillersons, rivals of the Abbotts, desire vengeance and control. The eccentric patriarch Wayne (Will Patton) and Luke (Shaun Sipos) add layers of tension. Autumn, the nomad, holds the key to Amy’s future.

While the first episode struggles with setup, the remainder of the season delves deeper into the labyrinth of time. Outer Range Season 2 is a mind-bending treat, combining family drama, science fiction, and philosophical themes. It leaves us wanting more, much like the hole itself.
