‘Stumptown’ First Look Trailer

ABC announced its fall schedule for the 2019-20 TV season along with a first look at their new fall shows. One that I’m excited for is the Cobie Smulders-led Stumptown.

Ever since Castle ended on the Alphabet a few years back, the network hasn’t been able to pull me back with a new hour-long drama. They almost had me with The Good Doctor (which I’m sure I will watch one day), and I still religiously watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but nothing else has caught my eye drama-wise.

Stumptown looks like it could change that. Smulders in the lead guarantees my How I Met Your Mother love will be in full swing, plus the car scene looks pretty dope. (Then again, most pilots have a bigger budget than the rest of the episode count.) All that said, Stumptown might be the show to pull me back into live network watching.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on the “Stumptown” graphic novel series, follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders) as a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great P.I., but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.

Stumptown airs Wednesdays this fall on ABC.

What did you think of the trailer? Has anyone here read the comics?
