Tait Blum Joins Jason Clarke In ‘The Last Frontier’ Apple TV+ Drama Series

EXCLUSIVE: The Last Frontier continues to round out its main cast, adding Tait Blum (Home Team) as a series regular alongside Jason Clarke in Apple TV+’s drama series from Jon Bokenkamp (The Blacklist) and Richard D’Ovidio (The Call). The series received a 10-episode series order in February 2023.

Starring Clarke as US Marshal Frank Remnick, The Last Frontier follows Frank, the lone Marshal in charge of the quiet, rugged barrens of Alaska, whose jurisdiction is turned upside-down when a prison transport plane crashes in the remote wilderness, setting free dozens of violent inmates. Tasked with protecting the town he’s vowed to keep safe, he begins to suspect the crash wasn’t an accident, but the first step of a well-crafted plan with international political implications.
