Band of Outsiders “This mountain is ours, but it don’t come free,” Foster Farrell the 7th proclaims. “We gotta pay rent on it—only our rent, it come in blood.” This line sums up Outsiders, a new Appalachian-style offering from WGN America, in a nutshell. Set in a cranny of rural Kentucky, Outsiders tells the story of the Farrells, a reclusive mountain family that has lived off-the-grid and on their own terms for 200 years.
But when an incoming coal mining company sets their eyes on Shay Mountain just as the Farrells confront a family crisis (or three), the stage is set for a violent, territorial showdown that will leave the mountain soaked with the aforementioned "rent." Meet the family—and a few other outsiders—before the series premieres.
