Survivalism was a surprising trend of the late 2000s in reality shows, with the success of Man vs Wild and then its many spin-offs and offshoots – including competitive game shows about survivalist elements. The genre, it can be debated, has since taken a backseat for a while now, if not directly dead in the water. However, the intrigue that surviving in a harsh environment immediately creates is an ever-present factor, which is proven easily if we take a look at the abundance of open world survival titles in the multiplayer video game industry.
On the other side of things, it is no new revelation that Discovery has been ramping up their automobile game in recent years, with titles like Street Outlaws, and the network’s first-ever mega motor week stealing the highlight very recently in 2018. The curious thing is that one of Discovery’s newest pitches with some semblance to the automobiles niche also in some regards revokes the survivalist trend in reality TV. We are talking, of course, about ‘Last Outpost’, a show about recycling and making do to adapt, improvise, and overcome with wheels on a harsh turf.
Last Outpost Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?
Last Outpost is a very unique, one of a kind show which brings up the frigid sub-zero temperatures and an unfriendly sheet of ice in form of the survivalist’s enemy – a far cry from the show’s frequent and cursory usage of the Amazon rainforest to the point that it has become a trope among these shows. As the wielder of the torch for the Alaskan off-gridding tradition, the show casts a couplet of backcountry builders of noteworthy renown in their circles – Todd Anderson and Clint Greathouse. Because the show revolves completely around the innovative stunts they pull to improvise and build a context-appropriate vehicle for the task, the duo are indispensable for the show, and if and when a second season airs as a continuation of the same setting, we will definitely see Todd Anderson and Clint Greathouse again attempting to brave the tundra, even though they have practically zero experience on the silver screen.
Last Outpost Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
The show follows the backcountry builders Clint and Todd, who have opened their titular last outpost, ‘CT Mad Modz’, with the motive to sustain the Alaskan off-gridding tradition and make their dreams of building an unbeatable machine to champion the harsh turf a reality. Their builds are offbeat in that they often make use of unconventional and experimental schematics, as well as a wide usage of recycled parts that often figures in these builds.
Last Outpost Season 2 Release date: When will it premiere?
The show’s wacky and eccentric monstrous improvisations and a very fresh setting brought a welcome novelty to both genres that it combines, and given how well the debut season has fared with only a modest budget, the show may as well turn into a decade-long mainstay for Discovery if offered the chance. So all things considered, it is very likely that Discovery will greenlight a second season and we might see a tentative follow-up season, even though it is a mini-series, by April 2019. That said, the show has not been officially renewed yet, so a specific air date for the second season of Last Outpost is still undecided.
