‘The Abandons’ Series Casts Lucas Till, Nick Robinson, Diana Silvers, More

The Abandons, Kurt Sutter’s Western action drama for Netflix, has added six as series regulars: Lucas Till (MacGyver), Nick Robinson (Maid), Diana Silvers (Booksmart), Lamar Johnson (The Last of Us), Aisling Franciosi (The Nightingale), and Natalia del Riego (Hail Mary).

Till plays Garret Van Ness, with Robinson as Elias Teller, Silvers as Dahlia Teller, Johnson as Albert Mason, Franciosi as Trisha Van Ness, and Del Riego as Lilla Belle. As previously announced, Lena Heady and Gillian Anderson lead the cast, as Fiona Nolan and Constance Van Ness, respectively.

Created and exec produced by Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, Mayans M.C.), who also serves as showrunner, The Abandons follows a group of diverse, outlier families pursuing their Manifest Destiny in 1850s Oregon, as a corrupt force of wealth and power, coveting their land, tries to force them out. These abandoned souls, the kind of lost souls living on the fringe of society, unite their tribes to form a family and fight back. In this bloody process, “justice” is stretched beyond the boundaries of the law. The Abandons will explore that fine line between survival and law, the consequences of violence, and the corrosive power of secrets, as this family fights to keep their land.
