“As we started to see this cinematic, well-cast, and meticulously produced series come to life as we’d dared imagine for Season 1, we knew we’d created a uniquely immersive world and story that begged for expansion to a second season,” said Ken MacDonald, Vice-President and General Manager, Discovery. “Our decision to begin filming another six episodes before the series’ world premiere is a testament to our confidence in FRONTIER’s world-class storytelling.”
