The untamed glory of the old West as it really was returns when LONESOME DOVE: THE OUTLAW YEARS saddles up for another season of high-spirited episodes, with a new look and an exciting cast of characters struggling to survive on the wild frontier.
The year is 1880. Curtis Wells, the locale of LONESOME DOVE: THE OUTLAW YEARS, is now a boomtown on the Montana frontier. When neighboring Sweetwater was left in ashes by a prairie fire, its whores and desperadoes took up residence in Curtis Wells, changing its character forever.
Newt Call (Scott Bairstow) has come back to the town after living the past two years on the trail as a bounty hunter. Call is a man whose past has left its scars. Having left Curtis Wells a few nights after the explosion which killed his beloved Hannah, Call went on a downward spiral, aimless and soulless, eventually hitting bottom.
Coming back to the town has reopened some of those old wounds for Call, not the least of which is his unresolved business with Clay Mosby (Eric McCormack), the man who coveted his wife before the fire took her. Mosby has made Curtis Wells his personal dominion. Behind his charming, roguish facade, he is a ruthless businessman, swift and severe with those who cross him, ready to shape the town to his own dark vision.
New to Curtis Wells are Mattie Shaw (Kelly Rowan), who came from St. Louis with her father. When he died on the outskirts of town, she swallowed her fears and went ahead with his dream of opening a gunsmith shop. Like so many of the women of the West, she does what she must to survive.
The same could be said of Amanda Carpenter (Tracy Scoggins), a former grifter who's an explosive mixture of passion and danger. Rumors abound of her past, and the path that led her to Curtis Wells. Only she knows, and only she will tell.
LONESOME DOVE: THE OUTLAW YEARS brings to life all the grit, romance and excitement of the West--an untamed world where anything is possible.
