Following a short local tour promoting the first two seasons of their survival series drama, Northbound, Lullskull Ltd. and “A” Street Films, LLC. officially took to their Light It Up campaign on Kickstarter last week announcing crowdfunding to help fundraise for production on Season 3 with a four-episode finale also in tow for 2019/2020.
Shot entirely in Michigan’s visually stunning Upper Peninsula region, NORTHBOUND follows a lone father, Alex (Nate Alwine, pictured front-left) as he fights to protect his comatose daughter, Crystal (real daughters Callie and Addie Alwine) in the wilds of a post-cataclysmic North America.
Season 1 begins 3 Months after The Cataclysm and follows a former soldier named Alex as he retreats with Crystal into a post-apocalyptic wilderness. Over the course of this first year, Alex encounters two emergent groups: a militia nicknamed The Firewalkers, and a much graver threat called Allied Command North America. Alex soon discovers The Firewalkers are supplying Allied Command with comatose sleepers for an unknown purpose. After narrowly surviving these events, Alex and Crystal are saved by The Infinity Group, a band of refugees led by a Minister named Wallace.
Season 2 resumes 18 Months after The Cataclysm and finds Alex taking on more leadership within the ranks of Wallace’s Infinity Group. His growing bond with the Minister is tested when he helps rescue a sleeper from Allied Command captivity. Blaming The Firewalkers for this incident, Allied Command coerces the militia leaders to retrieve their lost asset at all costs. Outnumbered and outgunned on two flanks, The Infinity Group is caught in the middle of a power struggle that could ignite into a violent turf-war.
Season 3 picks up a few days following Season 2’s cliffhanger ending. Reeling from an assassination attempt, Alex ponders whether to go off on his own with Crystal, or lead an Infinity Group offensive to snuff The Firewalkers out once and for all. Allied Command however, has decided to take a firmer hand in the region, forcing all three factions into a decisive clash that will end the NORTHBOUND series and open the door to NORTHSTAR.
The series, which airs exclusively on the Minneapolis-based streaming platform Seeka TV, hails from beverage brand Rip It Energy Fuel and will commence principal photography in June. Seeka TV has been home to the show’s digital release since premiering in October 2017 and subsequently ranking in the Top 5 most-viewed series on the platform.
Northbound is just one in a slate of hopeful efforts from co-creators/directors/Michigan natives Seth and Nathan Anderson, producer/writer Jason Hagen and exec producer Gary M. Bettman to bring film and series projects to the under-represented Upper Peninsula region in order to revitalize the arts, tourism and local economies. That boost includes pending tie-in feature film production, Northstar, and other long-term film production prospects for the area.
