THE GUNSLINGER IS BACK.
THE BRAND NEW SEASON OF BILLY THE KID PREMIERES OCTOBER 16, SAME DAY AS THE U.S., ONLY ON STAN.
Starring Tom Blyth and Australian actor Daniel Webber, the epic romantic adventure from Michael Hirst returns for a second season.
August 25, 2023 – Stan today announced the premiere date for the brand new season of Billy The Kid, premiering October 16, same day as the U.S., only on Stan. The smash-hit Western drama written and executive produced by Michael Hirst (Vikings) stars Tom Blyth (The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes) and Australian actor Daniel Webber (Escape from Pretoria, Marvel's The Punisher) as outlaws on the American frontier and their pivotal role in the Lincoln County War.
Based on true events, the series traces the life William H. Bonney or Billy The Kid (Blyth), from his origins as a young boy coming to the West from New York with his immigrant Irish family in hopes of a fresh start. He meets Jesse (Webber), a fellow gunslinger who has already embraced a life of crime: robbing stores and cattle rustling. Jesse is attracted to his wild and reckless character and becomes Billy's doppelganger of sorts — his shadow self, forever inviting him over to the dark side of life.
The series also stars Eileen O'Higgins as Kathleen McCarty, Sean Owen Roberts as Bob Olinger, Dakota Daulby as John Beckwith, Ryan Kennedy as Ash Upson, Ian Tracey as Frank Baker, Vincent Walsh as Lawrence Murphy. Further rounding off the cast are Jamie Beamish as Henry Antrim, Guillermo Alonso as Melquiades Segura, Shaun Benson as Riley, Christie Burke as Barbara Jones, and Chad Rook as James Dolan among many others. Michael Hirst serves as the writer and Executive Producer of the series, alongside Executive Producers Donald De Line (De Line Pictures), Darryl Frank, and Justin Falvey (Amblin Television).
The brand new season of Billy the Kid premieres October 16, only on Stan. Every episode of Billy the Kid season one is now streaming, only on Stan.
