The Fantasy series will not return for Season 2

#StrangeEmpire Cancelled, No Season Two :(

Strange Empire was a western style fantasy series from creator Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik and producers Annuit Coeptis Entertainment. The show ran for one season starting in 2014.

What’s It All About?

#SE aired on October 6 2014 when a meeting of fate led to tragedy in 1869 on the border of Alberta-Montana. This brings three women together as they struggle to survive following the deaths of the men in their town.
The focus of the series is women who are the heroes in the western world as they don’t just struggle to survive, but also look for justice along the way and to make their community a better place. Along the way there are clashes between son and father and prejudices among races as the women look ahead towards building up a community.

What’s Been Happening?

Season 1 episode 1 of SE aired on October 6 2014 and introduced viewers to the lives of the three women when tragedy struck. Throughout the season viewers have watched as the girls of Kat have been threatened and Isabelle tried to get investors in the mine. Kat was the witness to a murder and was chased by bounty hunters. A ruthless sheriff was appointed and the girls were left to struggle with cattle rustlers. Episode 13, the last one of the series, was shown on February 2 2015 and saw all three of the women having to work side by side to defeat Slotter.
But is there going to be a season 2 of #StrangeEmpire?

What’s In Store?

If you have been loving every minute of #SE in its first season you will be hoping that there is going to be a season 2, so is there?
When SE was aired it was very popular among women, after all most westerns have men as the main characters with the women being portrayed as helpless and homemakers. The series had a great case and direction, with a strong theme and story line. Therefore it came as a shock when CBC said that there isn’t going to be a season 2 of the series. A spokesperson gave confirmation but they didn’t say exactly why the show has been cancelled after just one single season.
When the show was announced for season 1 CBC said that it was a series that was premium cable worthy and featured sex, prostitution and gunslingers, and had a dark side.
Of course it could be picked up again in the future and if you want to know if and when it does, you can sign up to our one click notification service.
