George R. R. Martin shows off his new Wrangler award

Martin recently announced on his blog, Not A Blog:

“Back in April, “Monster Hunter” (the premiere episode of the first season of DARK WINDS) won the Wrangler Award for the Best Television Drama from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma.

I was not able to attend the awards ceremony in person, alas, but the good folks at the museum promised to send the award.

I’m delighted to report that the Wrangler finally rode up here in Santa Fe.”

Dark Winds Season 2 will release on July 30

Martin wrote in an earlier post: “Mark July 30 on your calendars.

That’s the day that Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee are set to return for the second season of DARK WINDS, our adaptation of the award-winning “Navajo Detective” series of novels by the late great Tony Hillerman. I had the honor of being one of the Executive Producers on the series, along with Robert Redford, Chris Eyre, Tina Elmo, Anne Hillerman, Zahn McClarnon, Vince Gerardis, Graham Roland, and showrunner John Wirth.”

You can stream Dark Winds Season 1 and 2 on AMC+.
