13 more episodes have been ordered for the fantasy drama.
October 8, 2020
Reports are out that The Outpost has been renewed for an additional 13 episodes on The CW. Coming just ahead of its Season 3 premiere, the good news was posted on the fantasy drama's official social media pages - but details on the pickup are scant.
It appears as if the 13 new episodes won't necessarily be considered Season 4, but instead potentially an extension of Season 3. Though seeing as how the show's first two seasons were comprised of 10 and 13 episodes respectively, the 13 episodes ordered today would seem a natural fit for a self-contained season. We'll have to see how it plays out in the coming months. But either way, fans can be assured more Outpost is on the way.
The Outpost follows Talon, a Blackblood whose village was destroyed by a gang of mercenaries years ago. Now the only remaining member of her race, she travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of civilization looking for her family's killer. On her way to the outpost, Talon learns that she possesses a supernatural power that she must harness in order to save herself and defend the world against a radical religious dictator.
I'm guessing with the production costs (mainly in Serbia nowadays) vs. the number of viewers and revenue, it's still a net positive.
