Netflix has axed a long-time fan-favorite after three seasons. We’re talking about ‘Frontier,’ led by Jason Momoa.
The Canadian historical drama based on the fur trade around the Canadian and American border in the 1700s premiered in 2016 and launched its season three in 2018 never received a go for its fourth season, leading to significant speculation around its status.
The cancelation seemed almost secure and apparently now it’s confirmed. While Momoa shared an Instagram post saying the show would return, many of his co-stars then said otherwise.
Momoa played Declan Harp, a half-Irish, half-Cree outlaw fighting the British Hudson Bay Company monopoly on the fur trade in Canada.
The cancelation isn’t exactly bad news for Momoa, who rose to stardom with his role as Khal Drogo in HBO’s worldwide phenomenon, ‘Game of Thrones.’ He’s starring in ‘See,’ an Apple TV+ dystopian show. Also, he is set to reprise his role as Aquaman on Warner Bros.’ sequel in December 2022, after playing the role in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ ‘The Justice League,’ and a solo film.
Back in April, Momoa hinted the end of the show with an Instagram story where he said “Rest in peace, Declan” which has been deleted since but recovered by fan accounts. Later, Jessica Matten, who played Sokanon, confirmed the news.
If you followed the show, you’ll remember that Season 3 ended with a notable cliffhanger. Does that mean Discovery Canada may take the show to another network or that we may have a feature film that gives closure to the varied storylines that remained open? It’s hard to say, but with Momoa’s full agenda, it seems like a long shot.
