WATCH: Outer Range is coming to screens this month
What is Outer Range about?
Described as a "neo-Western", which "examines how we grapple with the unknown," Outer Range follows a rancher named Royal Abbott (played by Josh Brolin) who finds himself fighting for his land and his family when he discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming's wilderness - a huge black hole.

To make matters even more complicated, the gaudy owners of a neighboring, profit-driven ranch are trying to make a play for his land and his daughter-in-law Rebecca has just mysteriously disappeared.
As the synopsis reads: "Wild revelations unfold as Royal fights to protect his family; through his eyes, we begin to see how time contains secrets held in the past and unsettling mysteries foreshadowed."
Who is in the cast of Outer Range?
Joining Marvel star Josh in the cast are a number of familiar faces, including The Conjuring star Lili Taylor, actress Imogen Poots and Yellowstone's very own Will Patton.
