The Fantasy series will not return for Season 2

#StrangeEmpire Cancelled, No Season Two :(
Advertisement

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.

What Are The Top 3 Outstanding Episodes?

Season 1 episode 6 was among the most outstanding episodes when a new sheriff, who happened to be totally ruthless, was appointed in the town, while Kat was seeking justice.
Season 1 episode 9 stands out as the loyalties of the women are divided, while the railway and mine workers were left to fight to see who gained control of the mine and there were losses to both parties.
Season 1 episode 13 saw the women having to come together and work together so that they could defeat Slotter.

I enjoyed Strange Empire a great deal and was incredibly disappointed to find that Season 2 had been cancelled. It’s truly a shame that shows that we as viewers love to watch are so regularly cancelled. Usually after we’ve invested a great deal of our time in watching these programs, and forming attachments with the characters in the story line. The characters that we love, the ones we love to hate.
To bring Jeremiah Loving back at the end of the last episode and then cancel the next season was unfair to your devoted viewers.

This sucks! This was one really good show. Well written, well produced, and great actors/actresses. What happened that it was cancelled? Oh well doesn’t matter now I find something that I enjoy it’s always cancelled.

I happened on this by accident when I was looking for something to watch on Netflix. I don’t have cable & had never even heard of this series till 3 days ago. It grabbed me right away as few series do. I just finished watching episode 13. It left me wracked with disappointment & horror that they would be so cruel as to bring back Jeremiah Loving in such an awful way right there at the end! I want to see more of these strong, wonderful women & a few of the men characters as well. Please let me know if there is ever a 2nd season.

We just watched the series on Netflix…..we really liked it..my husband was glued to the tv and we are disappointed that a second season is not planned….would love to see what happens to all of the characters….there are far worse shows lingering of useless mind clutter….like Sister Wives…GAG to all of them…and their ego puke of a husband having free affairs and confused children…..and you continue this????/ Weird family value for the most of the population. .at least this Strange Empire.. was historical, revealing and had a great story line……You pooped on yourself by not making another season….take a clue from Downton Abbey…and conclude without leaving your loyal viewer hanging….conclude story lines and deliver characters and when you leave bring closure for your viewers…we get so involved that it is emotionally hurtful for us to be left at the curb like a bad breakup with no answers or conclusions….NOT FAIR…..

I came across this as well on accident on Netflix and was drawn in completely. Why is it that good tv shows are canceled and pathetic shows are left on tv such as bachelor and Bachelorette the fantasy shows about mideval times especially ones making fun of them. If the show has a 2nd season I would love 2 know

Hello!!! This is an awesome unexpected show!! The acting, casting, writing, cinematography and all else is exceptional. The only problem I see is no advertising!! I’m shocked that there is no season 2 planned and I’m picky!!

CBC done $#!+ in their mess kit by cancelling Strange Empire. Right up there with Deadwood, Longmire and Hell on Wheels! This series is too good not to be picked up by another network.

I recently watched the 1st Season of Strange Empire on Netflix and I enjoyed it very much. I am hoping now that the Canadian government is going to restore funding of our public broadcaster that CBC will continue producing more of this series. Say you will CBC!

I also was looking for something to watch on Netflix and came across Strange Empire. What an amazing show!!! I was glued to each and every episode and always looked forward to the next. Jeremiah comes back at the end and that’s it?? How can you cancel such a suspenseful and truly riveting show and then just leave your watchers hanging??? What a crushing and disappointing blow to devoted fans! SEASON 2 WHERE ARE YOU?? Please bring it back and I also would like to know WHEN it does come back!!

Give us season 2. How can it end with Jeremiah being alive and wandering into town, only to be carried off by indians. I found this on Netflix, and watched episodes daily only to be disappointed with finding out it had been canceled. I don’t watch much TV because of all the garbage shows,but I enjoyed this one.

This series and Hell on Wheels drew me into a vacuum of imagination and historical fiction that made watching TV interesting for a while. Rare indeed for me.

If need be, ill start a #Bring’SE’ back campaign. I loved this show and ive seen way worse sex scenes in other programs on tv. This one is actually a good rate, has a good story plot and climax at the end. A husband she was searching for for months just happens to run through the camp, only to be snatched up by indians?! I was sure another season would stream with an ending like that
. how disappointing! Ps women are a good crowd to keep pleased, we will follow our favorite shows to the moon and back!

I am so disappointed that the show was canceled!!! I do not understand why. The viewers love for all of the characters do not count. Politics as usual. I wish I had not found it. So sad, these women and men are great. So much history being taken from us. Whether nice or not,we know the ugliness of those times. The sad part is also,the struggle and will to live is squashed. A lesson our generation and our children’s need very badly. Very disappointed as I stated already. SMH

I totally agree Ang. I was hooked since the first episode and very dispointed to find that the second season was cancelled. All the women cast were awesome i just would have liked to see Slotter live a little longer. But the end made it sad and made me gasp to see Mrs. Loving killed Slotter thinking he killed her husband when he didn’t.

I am so irritated to have found your site, but only because season 2 of this amazing show is no longer happening. I agree with many of the comments in favor of a season 2. My bigger draw and love of the show is that it was a western with strong female lead characters. There is a lot to admire about women that are able to survive the adversity of the time period; prosper, survive and be more than baby makers. I am thoroughly upset, especially since I spent this weekend streaming on Netflix.
