Into the Wild Frontier is a 2022 western drama series created by John Doe that airs on the streaming service IMDb Freedive. The show is set in the late 1800s during the era when people were moving out West across the United States to settle new frontiers. It follows the Cooper family, led by patriarch James Cooper, as they make the difficult journey from their home in Pennsylvania to Oregon in search of a new life.

The Cooper family faces many challenges and dangers along the trail as they travel in their covered wagon. They must deal with extreme weather, sickness, injuries, lack of food and water, and the constant threat of attacks from Native American tribes who see the settlers as invaders. Through it all, they rely on their faith, perseverance and each other to make it through.

James Cooper is a stubborn but caring father who is determined to find a better life for his family out West. His wife Emily is a strong pioneer woman who holds the family together. Their children - eldest son Samuel, daughter Charlotte, and young son Theodore - all have different experiences adjusting to frontier life. Other travelers join them along the way, some becoming friends and others foes.

Each episode follows the Cooper family's journey across the frontier while also flashing back to their former life in Pennsylvania and the circumstances that led them to pick up and move halfway across the country. They encounter historic events and fascinating frontier characters while forging new paths through beautiful but treacherous country.

Over the course of the first season, the Coopers experience forest fires, dangerous river crossings, runaway wagons, and more while on their quest to start over out West. They lose fellow travelers to accidents and disease but also befriend kind strangers who help them along the way. It's a test of faith and fortitude as they try to adapt to an environment far different than their homes back East.

Will the Cooper family make it through their arduous journey and successfully start a new life? Or will the perils of the untamed frontier prove too much for the determined pioneers? Into the Wild Frontier takes viewers on an epic adventure across a landscape and time period full of excitement, high stakes, and everyday struggles. With realistic historical detail, rich characters, and dramatic storylines, it provides an immersive look at the hopes and hazards encountered by brave American families who headed Into the Wild Frontier.

Into the Wild Frontier is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on February 17, 2022.
