The Outpost Trailer: A Summer Drama Worth Watching?

at . Comments

We think it's fair to say that scripted offerings on the broadcast networks during the summer months are pretty much non-existent. 

The CW is gearing up to launch two new dramas this summer, and we have the first trailer for one of them. 

The Outpost's official description reads:

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.

The Outpost Poster

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.

The first trailer certainly shows off the action, and it actually looks like a mash-up of Reign and The Shannara Chronicles, which we're totally okay with. 

The Outpost stars Jessica Green, Jake Stormoen, Imogen Waterhouse, Anand Desai-Barochia, and Robyn Malcolm.

Jefferson: You’ve been asked to leave ... nicely.
Agent Odell: Not yet, Mr. Pierce. Thanks to you, the Markovians have Dr. Jace. And here’s the best part, the concentration of metahumans in Freeland from the vaccines and the Green Light experiments make it the greatest threat to Markovia. It’s only a matter of time before they launch a lethal first strike. I’m swearing in Black Lightning, Thunder, and whatever you’re calling yourself, young lady.

Agent Odell: The Markovian war is coming. And Freeland ... *Free*land ... is ground zero.

Kevin: Given how much dancing there is in Heathers, Evelyn and I felt that we should bring on a choreographer. So, give a big Heathers "hello" to Riverdale’s very own Fly Girl, Toni Topaz!
