There is no season 2, but this is self contained. Season 1 was released in 2020.

No other spoilers but no Delphine does not have a penis, and what's going on is eventually revealed.

Very high quality of production. Prestige-class. There is violence, but classy-like.

Ultimately enjoyed this, but needed to get a couple/ three episodes in. Strong character development.

Kaniehtiio Horn is great. Zahn McClarnon settles into a typed role.

Marcia Gay Harden has a great character. I very much enjoyed Aneurin Barnard as the Hudsons Bay man. Lily Sullivan (Delphine) is set to star in 'Evil Dead Rise' (2023) and I am much more stoked for it than before seeing her here.

I bounced off the book, but I love Annie Proulx. Will give this a look.
