Outcasts is a British science fiction drama television series that aired on BBC One from February to April 2011. It starred Liam Cunningham, who plays Julius Berger, a charismatic and enigmatic leader of a colony of humans who have left Earth to start a new life on a distant planet called Carpathia.

The show is set in the year 2060, where Earth has become uninhabitable due to natural disasters, climate change, and wars. In order to ensure their survival, a group of humans have been sent to Carpathia, a remote and barren planet that has been deemed suitable for human life. The colony that has been established on Carpathia is called Forthaven, and it is a place where humanity can start anew, free from the mistakes and failures of their past.

The show follows the lives of the colonists as they adapt to their new environment and deal with all the challenges that come with starting a new life on a distant planet. They have to build their own homes, grow their own food, and deal with unexpected dangers such as storms, radiation, and wildlife that they are not familiar with. The settlers are also determined to create a new society, one that is fairer and more equal than the one they left behind on Earth.

The main character, Julius Berger, is the president of Forthaven, and he is a man who is respected and admired by most of the colony. He is a brilliant leader, who is determined to protect his people and ensure their survival on Carpathia. However, Julius has a secret past that he is trying to keep hidden from the rest of the colony, and his ultimate goal is to find a way to return to Earth.

One of the key themes of the show is the idea of identity and what it means to be human. The colonists on Carpathia are trying to create a new society where everyone is equal, and individuality is celebrated. However, they soon realize that it is not easy to leave their past behind, and they struggle with their own personal demons and flaws. The show also explores the concept of isolation and how it affects the human psyche. The colonists are cut off from the rest of humanity, and they have to rely on each other for support and survival. This leads to intense relationships and conflicts, as well as moments of hope and inspiration.

Outcasts is a gripping and thought-provoking show that is full of drama, action, and suspense. The series is well-written, with strong character development and an engaging plot that keeps viewers hooked from start to finish. The performances of the cast, particularly Liam Cunningham's, are excellent, and they bring a depth and complexity to their characters that makes them seem real and relatable.

Overall, Outcasts is a must-watch for fans of science fiction and drama. It is a fascinating exploration of what it means to be human in a new world, and it raises important questions about our own society and the choices we make. It is a shame that the show was cancelled after just one season, as it had the potential to become a classic of modern television. However, the one season that was produced is still worth watching and will leave viewers with plenty to think about long after the final episode.

Outcasts is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on February 7, 2011.
