Though the network didn’t offer an explanation for its decision to end The Outpost, it seems that the show’s low ratings are one of the factors that led to its cancellation. According to TVLine, the fourth season of The Outpost only averages a 0.05 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 423,000 viewers.
Created by Jason Faller and Kynan Griffin, The Outpost follows Talon (Jessica Green), the lone survivor of a race called Blackbloods. Years after her entire village was destroyed by a gang of brutal mercenaries, Talon travels to a lawless fortress on the edge of the civilized world, as she tracks the killers of her family. On her journey to this outpost, Talon discovers she possesses an extraordinary and mysterious supernatural power that she must learn to control in order to save herself, and defend the world against a fanatical religious dictator.”
In addition to Green, The Outpost also stars Jake Stormoen as Captain Garret Spears, Anand Desai-Barochia as Janzo, Aaron Fontaine as Tobin, Reece Ritchie as Zed, Izuka Hoyle as Wren, Adam Johnson as Munt, and Georgia May Foote as Falista.
The Outpost’s cancellation comes two weeks after it was announced that The CW cancelled the freshman drama series The Republic of Sarah on September 2nd.
