The CW Adds The Outpost Fantasy Drama Series to Summer Lineup

The Outpost TV Series

Has The CW found its next great female heroine?

The network has acquired The Outpost, a 10-episode fantasy drama from Arrowstorm and Electric Entertainment, TVLine has learned. The series centers around Talon (Ash vs. Evil Dead‘s Jessica Green), the last surviving member of a race known as the Blackbloods.

The Outpost‘s official description is as follows:

Years after her entire village is destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world, as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey to this outpost, Talon discovers she possesses a mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.


(Well, that escalated quickly.)

The Outpost — which hails from executive producers Dean Devlin (Stargate), Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1), Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin — also stars Jake Stormoen, Imogen Waterhouse, Andrew Howard, Anand Desai-Barochia and Robyn Malcolm.

A U.S. premiere date will be announced at a later time. Outside of the States, The Outpost will premiere on Syfy channels in the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Latin America, Poland, the Balkans, Middle East, Africa and Australia.
