Frontier Season 4: Netflix Renewal Status & What We Know

Frontier is one of the most underrated shows on Netflix and its return for season 4 has been widely unreported. Here’s what we know about the next season of Frontier when it’ll be on Netflix and any other snippets of information we have.

Unlike The Last Kingdom (which is also getting a fourth season) which is now produced entirely by Netflix, Frontier is still only co-produced. That means unless Netflix takes up the reigns to development, Discovery Canada still has a say on the show’s future.

The show is about Declan Harp (played by Jason Momoa) who is an outlaw working in the fur trade a couple of centuries ago.

Official Renewal Status: Reportedly Renewed

Although we haven’t heard anything official from Netflix themselves. It has been reported by Jason Momoa himself that season 4 is on the way.

The first mention is in an Instagram post where he talks about the show in detail. Most importantly, however, is how he signs off with the post with the following six words: “Season 4 is gonna get dark.”

In a later video on his YouTube channel, again back in January 2019, he visits his hometown of Iowa but says he has to return to Vancouver (where Frontier is filmed) to get back to work.

Jason Momoa’s schedule is looking incredibly busy given he’s now fully into filming the upcoming Apple sci-fi series, ‘See’. He’s also just been announced to be starring and producing a new series called ‘Sweet Girl’ on Netflix. That’s on top of his duties to the DC Universe as Aquaman.


Is Netflix fully taking over the show’s production?

One of the biggest ongoing complaints from people on forums like Reddit is the inconsistency of the show. Whether that’s down to the writing, set design or the costumes of the character.

Similar complaints were aired for The Last Kingdom early in its development but those concerns have been alleviated for its latest season which Netflix took full reigns over.

That could actually now be taking place given Discovery Canada has now removed all mentions of the show from their website with the shows official page now resulting in a 404 not found error.


When will season 4 of Frontier be Netflix?

There’s still no news on when season 4 could be dropping on Netflix. At this point, we’re not entirely sure whether the show will, in fact, return in 2019 or will be pushed back in 2020.

If filming did take place earlier in the year, it could come back this year but without some official word of some sort, we simply don’t know.

Of course, there’s plenty of other titles to watch in the meantime before season 4 drops. As we said above, The Last Kingdom season 3 landed alongside Frontier over Thanksgiving. If you’re just a fan of Jason Momoa, you’re no doubt looking forward to his upcoming performance in DC movie Aquaman due out for release by the end of the year.

We’d also strongly suggest you watch a making-of video for Frontier season 1 that dropped in January 2019.

Let us know down below if you’re wanting another season 4 of Frontier, these fans on Twitter certainly do.
