A new Netflix series will be filmed in Alberta this summer
Alberta is welcoming yet another TV production, with a Netflix series being filmed in the province this summer.
The Western action drama, The Abandons, was first announced back in November 2021, with Netflix giving the show a 10-episode order, per Variety.
The series synopsis on IMDb describes “when a corrupt force of wealth and power covets the lands of a group of diverse and atypical families and tries to drive them out, they must pursue their Manifest Destiny.”
The series will also be helmed by Kurt Sutter, who was the executive producer for the TV series Sons of Anarchy and Mayans M.C.
