“Am I going to Hell?”
Jason Momoa’s Declan Harp asks that question at the beginning of the trailer for season two of Frontier, and it’s understandable, seeing as how everybody in the world seems to be chasing him. Season two finds Harp on the run with a dead-or-alive bounty on his head, and the machinations of the other characters only seem to be getting bloodier.
Frontier has been criticized for being slow in the past, but this trailer might have the opposite problem: it moves so fast, jumping from one violent outburst to another, that it’s hard to keep track of just who is getting stabbed each time. We get a few shots of people speaking about trade and business, and a few more of Momoa taking the tried and true scowl-’n’-growl approach to acting, but the trailer mostly seems interested in disembowelments.
Here’s the new season’s full, official synopsis from Netflix:
In this epic second season, the frontier expands with spectacular new views of the northern wilderness, and new players entering the ruthless game in the quest for power and wealth – pushing everyone to either embrace unknown alliances or arm themselves against them. Fort James is left in chaos after Michael Smyth (Landon Liboiron), Sokanon (Jessica Matten), and Grace Emberly (Zoe Boyle) detonated a munitions magazine, leaving Declan Harp (Jason Momoa) to slip through the hangman’s noose. With Harp gone, the Black Wolf Company is fractured and no one knows if Harp survived or not… but Lord Benton (Alun Armstrong) is not taking any chances; he offers a dead-or-alive bounty for Harp, unleashing a dangerous threat to Harp and his allies. Meanwhile in the burgeoning city of Montréal, the power dynamic of the trade is in flux, as serious battle lines are drawn between Elizabeth Carruthers (Katie McGrath) and Samuel Grant (Shawn Doyle).
Season two of Frontier premieres Nov. 24, just a week from now.
