O0o0o0o0o, this sounds promising.

Netflix has picked up Frontier, a historical adventure series set in late-18th Century Canada. Starring in the show is none other than Jason Momoa. So get ready to see him in furs and being all burly and rugged in the wilderness.

The series follows the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts. Co-starring alongside Mamoa are Alun Armstrong, Landon Liboiron, Zoe Boyle, Allan Hawco, and Jessica Matten.

The six-episode first season of the series will premiere exclusively on Netflix outside of Canada in 2016. Canadians will get to watch the show on network TV before it goes to Netflix Canada in 2018, according to Deadline.

The Netflix shows have been amazing so far, so really looking forward to learning more about Frontier. The more historical adventure the better!
