‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Deadpool 2’ star Josh Brolin is setting aside his infinity gauntlet and his laser rifle for a cowboy hat and boots in the upcoming Amazon Prime Video show ‘Outer Range.’ Describing the series as “genre-bending,” it will have eight episodes released on the streaming service in April.

Amazon Studios explained on their website that “‘Outer Range’ centers on Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin), a rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness. A thrilling fable with hints of wry humor and supernatural mystery, ‘Outer Range’ examines how we grapple with the unknown.”

Brolin will lead a cast that also features Imogen Poots (I Know This Much is True), Lili Taylor (Perry Mason), Tamara Podemski (Four Sheets to the Wind), Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick), Tom Pelphrey (Ozark), Noah Reid (Schitt’s Creek), Shaun Sipos (Krypton), Isabel Arraiza (The Little Things), Olive Abercrombie (The Haunting of Hill House), and Will Patton (Yellowstone).

The show is created by Brian Watkins who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer.

Some “first look” images were also dropped with the announcement.

The synopsis is described as follows,

“At the onset of the series, the Abbotts are coping with the disappearance of daughter-in-law Rebecca. They are pushed further to the brink when the Tillersons (the gaudy owners of the neighboring profit-driven ranch) make a play for their land. An untimely death in the community sets off a chain of tension-filled events, and seemingly small-town, soil-bound troubles come to a head with the arrival of a mysterious black void in the Abbotts’ west pasture. 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.”

Amazon Studios will work with Plan B Entertainment to produce the show.
