WGN America’s addictive and compelling drama, “Outsiders,” premieres an all new episode Tuesday, January 31 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). In “Shadowside,” written by Gordon L. Smith and directed by Jon Amiel, Big Foster wakes up in a house of horrors run by a hillbilly woman who wants him as her caged pet, as he fights like hell to break free. Lil Foster is investigated by state police, and Houghton blames himself for what’s to come. Meanwhile, an all-female clan called the Kinnah arrive on Shay Mountain, and not everyone is as welcoming as G’win.
“Outsiders” explores the epic struggle of the Farrell Clan, who have lived atop the rugged Shay Mountain for over two hundred years, and their battle to defend their land and way of life from the town below. Last season the uneasy truce that had generally existed between the townspeople and the family tribe came to an abrupt end when Big Coal headed up the mountain. In season two, the standoff continues to have repercussions, putting everyone to the test as they’re forced to face new challenges and enemies as the conflict between the clan and the town escalates with the Farrells becoming more isolated than ever before.
The ensemble cast for “Outsiders” includes: David Morse (“Treme,” Concussion) as Big Foster; Ryan Hurst (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Bates Motel”), as Lil Foster; Thomas M. Wright (“The Bridge,” “Top of the Lake”) as Sheriff T. Wade Houghton; Gillian Alexy (“The Americans,” “Damages”) as G'Winveer; Kyle Gallner (American Sniper, “Veronica Mars”) as Hasil; Christina Jackson (“Boardwalk Empire,” “Deception”) as Sally-Ann; Joe Anderson (“The Divide,” Across the Universe) as Asa; Francie Swift (“Hostages,” “House of Cards”) as Haylie Grimes; and Rebecca Harris (“The Good Wife,” “Sex and the City”) as Ledda.
Hailing from Sony Pictures Television, “Outsiders,” is created and written by award-winning playwright Peter Mattei, who executive produces alongside Fedora Entertainment's Emmy® Award-winner Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," Analyze This) and Michael Wimer (2012, "Rake"), and Touchy Feely Films’ Emmy® Award-winner Paul Giamatti ("John Adams," Sideways) and Daniel Carey (All Is Bright).
