In just over a week, former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa‘s new original series, Frontier will make its American debut on Netflix. And if the newest trailer is any indication, Momoa will be kicking a lot of ass in this period series.
Frontier takes place in the late 1800s, and it follows Momoa’s character, Declan Harp, as he battles his former employers, the Hudson’s Bay Company, in order to unravel their attempts to control the fur trade in North America. Harp is a half-Native American and half-Irish outlaw whose defiance appears to have earned him the hatred of several powerful men. Within the trailer, Michael Smyth (Landon Liboiron) is assigned to find Harp, which is a mission that may threaten the woman whom Smyth loves. However, Harp’s enemies don’t simply want him to be killed, as that would be too easy on him. Instead, they want Harp to suffer and they want to make an example out of him. That seems like a particularly bad idea, considering how easily Harp cuts down anyone in his path. And as he notes in the closing moments of this video, Harp is already coming for them.
The series also stars Alun Armstrong as Lord Benton, with Allan Hawco as Douglas Brown, Greg Bryk as Cobbs Pound, Shawn Doyle as Samuel Grant, Tantoo Cardinal as Kamenna, and Jessica Matten as Sokanon.
All six episodes of Frontier season 1 will drop on Netflix on Friday, January 20.
