Trading the tranquility of The Seven Seas for the bitterly snowy landscapes of Canada, Jason Momoa means business and doesn't look like he's interested in making friends in the official trailer for Season 2 of Netflix's Frontier.
Co-created by Brad Peyton, Rob Blackie and Peter Blackie, the historical drama series chronicles the growth of the fur trade in North America in the 1700s. Momoa's Declan Harp is a part-Irish, part-Cree (Metis) outlaw who's looking to break the stranglehold that the Hudson's Bay Company has on the fur trade in Canada.
Co-produced by Canada's Discovery Channel and Netflix, the second season of Frontier is set to premiere all episodes on Friday, November 24th. Here's a look at the first official trailer, as well as the synopsis for the upcoming Season 2:
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).
For Momoa, the role of Declan Harp was one that he could identify with on a number of levels:
"I identified with this outcast thing, and I really loved it. I don't think a lot of people are calling me to play doctors and lawyers, which is fine with me. I can put a suit on, but I don't really like to."
