Show synopsis:

Quote

The bucolic tranquility of Greylock, New Hampshire is upended when a massive vein of coltan - an incredibly valuable mineral used in tech - is discovered under the town. State-backed mining company Lydon Industries swoops in with plans to extract the mineral ... plans that include wiping Greylock off the map. With her friends and family in danger of losing their homes, rebellious high school teacher Sarah Cooper (Stella Baker) vows to stop Lydon's bulldozers. It won't be easy.

Leading Lydon's efforts is Sarah's estranged brother, Danny Cooper (Luke Mitchell). After enduring a difficult childhood at the hands of his mother, former state senator Ellen Cooper (Megan Follows), Danny is eager to exact his revenge on a community he feels abandoned him. Sarah enlists her friends - fellow teacher Corinne Dearborn (Hope Lauren), police officer Amy "AJ" Johnson (Nia Holloway), and diner manager Grover Simms (Ian Duff) - in the fight against Danny, but there seems to be no way to stop the town's impending demise ... Until Sarah proposes an oddly intriguing solution: Greylock could declare independence. Citing various historical maps, she explains that the land on which Greylock sits was never properly claimed by the United States. If Sarah and her friends can convince the town to vote for independence, Greylock would gain international sovereignty and could protect its land for good.

With the help of a group of supporters that includes three of her teenage students - LA transplant Maya Jimenez (Izabella Alvarez), introspective outsider Tyler Easterbrook (Forrest Goodluck), and preppy "popular girl" Bella Whitmore (Landry Bender) - Sarah and her friends win the vote. And after a federal judge agrees that Greylock isn't - and never was - part of the United States, the town becomes a new nation. Now, Sarah and her allies must confront an even more daunting task: building a country from scratch.

I saw Luke Mitchell is back in the states and quarantining at the moment. It could be because his wife is due to start shooting soon but I half wondered if it was because he might be about to shoot this.

Casting news - Xander Berkeley has joined the cast.

EXCLUSIVE: Xander Berkeley (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) is set for a recurring role opposite Stella Baker and Luke Mitchell in the CW’s The Republic of Sarah, from writer-producer Jeffrey Paul King, Marc Webb, CBS Studios and studio-based Fulwell 73. Written by King, in The Republic of Sarah, faced with the destruction of her town at the hands of a greedy mining company, rebellious high school history teacher Sarah Cooper (Baker) utilizes an obscure cartographical loophole to declare independence. Now Sarah must lead a young group of misfits as they attempt to start their own country from scratch. Berkeley will play Paul, Sarah and Danny’s father. Long absent from the lives of his family, Paul returns to Greylock in search of redemption for his past mistakes. Or so it seems. Brilliant but imperfect, Paul’s innate distrust of authority – so that’s who Sarah got it from – often causes him to act impulsively and selfishly. Berkeley previous credits include series regular roles on 24, Nikita and The Walking Deadand features Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Air Force One. He’s repped by Untitled Entertainment.

Gone.  I knew it was a goner as soon as I saw that Luke Mitchell was in it.  Poor guy can't catch a break.  Every TV series he is in, either it gets cancelled or his character gets killed off.

He's like the 90s version of Eric Close, who had a tough time with the longevity of series after series until he was cast on "Without a Trace".
