In a news release Amber Dodson, the New Mexico Film Director said, “Returning series have become a big part of the growing film landscape in New Mexico. It is exciting to see a successful production like ‘Outer Range’ continue to choose New Mexico and for rural areas like Las Vegas to continue to see the economic benefits of a television series for two consecutive years.”
