The fantasy-adventure series THE OUTPOST, starring Jessica Green, also returns for its second season on Thursday, July 11 (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

Thanks!   That was the quietest renewal ever.   If it wasn't for your post,  I wouldn't have known it was renewed,  so thanks for that.  👍

@Jacks-Son It had been announced in October that it was renewed and I had posted about it at the time. But I guess that post was lost in the great forum reorganization a few months ago.

October? ?  Where the Hell was I? Probably asleep on all the news and concentrating on the new Fall shows.   Anyway,  i missed that news and thank you for not only posting the premiere date,  but also that it had been renewed already.

This show was so bad - so I have no idea why I'll probably watch it again this summer...

Jessica Green remains ready to fight for ‘The Outpost’
 Jul 2, 2019 Jay Bobbin

Quote

Q: What can you say about your character Talon’s journey as Season 2 of “The Outpost” begins?
A: I can’t really say much without giving too much away, but the path she was taking at the end of last season takes a big right turn. There are a lot of interesting things that happen, and they were a lot of fun to play. I feel that happens with all of the characters. Everyone’s story really takes a turn.
*  *  *
Q: “The Outpost” is such a physical show, how did you hold up in making the newest episodes?
A: I had a couple of injuries. When I was training with my horse, it slipped through ice and threw me off, and I thought I’d broken my tailbone. Luckily, I didn’t. I just severely bruised it, so that was “fun” for a few weeks. Then, I hurt my ankle, I broke my toes over the last few days of filming … it was good! And obviously, there were scars and cuts and bruises on my hands from doing all those fight scenes with men with armor on.

It just comes with the territory, I guess. If you want to do your own stunts and you want to fight, you have to expect it. I tend to get bruises here and there anyway, so I’m used to it.
*  *  *
Q: The series’ filming location made a big switch from Utah to Serbia for the second season. How did you find it there?
A: I was pretty shocked when I first found out that was where I was heading, but it was an incredible experience and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Instead of filming on sets, everything was for real. I had an absolute ball.

Jake Stormoen Discusses ‘The Outpost,’ Shipping, and More [Exclusive Interview]
August 28, 2019Charles E Henning
https://telltaletv.com/2019/08/jake-stormoen-discusses-the-outpost-shipping-and-more-exclusive-interview/ 

Quote

Fortunately, Jake Stormoen isn’t going through the same ordeal as the character he plays. His warm demeanor and friendly smile welcomed fans to his table at this year’s Wizard World Chicago. Among all the clamoring fans, Stormoen found a few minutes to answer some of our most burning questions about his on-set experiences and fellow castmates.
*  *  *
When asked what drew him to the role of Garret, Jake Stormoen replied quickly with barely a second to think. “I’m a huge fantasy fan and have been my entire life.”
*  *  *
“As a kid, I wanted to be nothing more than a knight or Indiana Jones. Getting to audition for the role was so exciting. When I found out I booked it, I was stoked. I’m having the best time — I’ve loved that stuff my whole life,” he continued. 
*  *  *
Stormoen explained as a child he was always reading anything from Forgotten Realms. “I’ve loved those kinds of characters my entire life. It isn’t necessarily anyone in particular that I can think of, but definitely one of those fictional characters that I read and daydreamed about as a kid.”

“I’m trying to relive that childhood and put that into the work,” he added. That’s a great way to never have to grow up if I ever heard one.
*  *  *
“I wanted to live in those fantasy worlds that my imagination always kept me in. I wanted to be a knight and a treasure hunter — acting was a way to do that,” Stormoen said.

He then mentioned that this kind of work is exactly what he wants his career to be known for. “I’ve been really fortunate in a ton of my work already. A lot of it has been in these fantasy worlds or period pieces — and I love that stuff!”

“If I could play a character that lasted through the ages in these worlds, that would just be the dream for sure,” he stated.
*  *  *
Moving on from life in other realms, Stormoen played a bit coy when it came to the question of who Garret’s heart belongs to. “You can’t ask me that! We have shippers on both sides — that is a dangerous question,” he laughed.

After composing himself, Jake Stormoen continued, “I would say that Garret has had a chance with Gwynn, and has probably given it a lot of thought. He has missed that boat and was drawn to aspects of Talon that maybe surprised him.”

“Ultimately I think he and Gwynn would be a really great match, but I don’t think he sees that. I don’t know that it could happen until he can recognize that and have confidence in himself,” Stormoen extended.

To not suffer the wrath of any certain fanbase, he concluded, “I can see arguments for both sides. I’m not sure that I’m allowed to cast my vote fully.”
*  *  *
When that subject was exhausted, Mr. Stormoen answered what he has in common with the character he plays on The Outpost. First approaching it as a joke, “This season or last season?”

He then went on, “I’ve tried to put a lot of myself in Garrett. I think he wants to do the right thing, and jumping before thinking is something that we share sometimes.”
*  *  *
“We get along so well — maybe too well,” he informed me. “Imogen loves to troll me on social media, and Jess is super fun. Everybody is great. We really have a fun time.”

“Season One was the first time we all met, and we bonded very quickly. The fact that we got renewed for Season 2, it was like a family reunion. It is a lovely group of people.” 
*  *  *
Shifting from the topic of the show, Jake Stormoen touched on a few hobbies he had outside of acting. “I think you probably heard, I play D&D, Magic, and other tabletop games,” he said with a smile. “I love gaming — both tabletop and video games.”

“I’m also a super outdoorsy guy. I love hiking — nature recharges me,” he continued.

“Rock climbing, hiking, and gaming of some sort.” Stormoen reiterated. 

Before our conversation came to a close, Jake Stormoen left with a shoutout to the fans. “Thank you for supporting our little show that is growing rapidly.”

“I love these types of worlds and playing this character, so being able to do that for a second season is because of the fans. Thank you truly from the bottom of my heart,” he said sincerely.

Charles E. Henning at Tell-Tale TV has been reviewing Season 2 episodes of The Outpost - here's his latest review...

The Outpost Review: Nothing Short of Heroic (Season 2 Episode 11)
https://telltaletv.com/2019/09/the-outpost-review-nothing-short-of-heroic-season-2-episode-11/

Quote

This little lad appears out of nowhere, going on about being spared from death like his sister and yadda, yadda, yadda. Now he is here to become a happy family again. Sorry if I’m just a bit skeptical Alton, but this all seems rather convenient. 
*  *  *
The action scenes between Talon and Garret are marvelous as usual. These two work in perfect unison with each other, slaying the baddies as almost a single unit. 

It is a bit surprising to see Talon forgive Garret so quickly and easily. With Talon being betrayed repeatedly this season, one would think that her guard would be up a lot longer than it is. We all want to see the best in our friends, but Talon knows firsthand that can often bite you in the rear.
*  *  *
Getting back to the topic of Janzo is a whole other story. While it feels great to see Garret and Talon reunite on the battleground, it rips at your heart to see what happens to our loveable dorky brewer.

After everything the sad-sack continues to do for The Outpost, he is still treated as a traitor. 

Gwynn, Gwynn, Gwynn. Repeatedly I have come to your defense this season — taking each move you make as a calculated risk for The Outpost’s gain. But I’m going to have to draw a line here.

I came across these older comments by Jake Stormoen regarding the Garret, Gwynn and Talon love triangle - the first interview is from two months ago and the second interview is from last year...

The Outpost: Jake Stormoen Takes The Fantasy Adventure Road – Interview
By: John Baker July 26, 2019
https://www.threeifbyspace.net/2019/07/the-outpost-jake-stormoen-takes-the-fantasy-adventure-road-interview/

Quote

“When season 1 finishes, our big antagonist (Everit Dred) for the season has escaped and Garret goes off to find him,” Stormoen explains. “When he goes out of those gates, he’s a little messed up (regarding) the two love interests. He kind of blew it with both, as far as I’m concerned. Garret is off to refocus himself on the duty and task at hand, and pour everything he has into doing the right thing."

The Outpost: Jake Stormoen shines in new fantasy series
By Michael Idato   July 10, 2018 
https://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/the-outpost-jake-stormoen-shines-in-new-fantasy-series-20180709-h12gio.html

Quote

Though some of the plot's finer points are yet to be unveiled, there is a measure of romantic potential between the leads, in particular the telegenic Stormoen and Green's fierce Talon, who is described as "a strong female lead ... who won't back down to a man, who has a cause and is going for it and won't let anything get in her way."

Stormoen notes he is enmeshed in what was referred to in the classics as a "love triangle".

"And I would say that a huge part of the attraction, the chemistry that is there comes from being attracted to the fact she is so independent and powerful and doesn't need anything," he says. "You know what I mean? She stands on her own two feet and she does it well.

"And she does it better than most of the men that she encounters," he adds. "It takes a lot to rifle her. And my character is very taken aback by that in a wonderful way. That's absolutely a huge part of the story and is embraced and has a light shown on it."

CW 2020-2021 schedule

The Outpost will air Thursdays at 9PM in Q4.
 

Quote

 

The CW’s Q4 schedule features the final seven episodes of Supernatural, a second season of CW Seed-generated  Two Sentence Horror Stories, scripted acquisitions The Outpost and Pandora, which the CW has been airing as original summer series, as well as the newly acquired Tell Me a Story, Swamp Thing, Coroner and Dead Pixels, whose seasons are in the can.

Supernatural has two episodes to film, with the rest in post production. The Outpost and Pandora also were impacted by the coronavirus-related production shutdown but both also have a significant portion of their seasons completed, so the hope is that all will be ready to air in the fall. Some scripted series, which produce 13-episode seasons, may start airing a little earlier to conclude their runs before January. The rest of the Q4 schedule is devoted to alternative fare.
