The television series “Yellowstone” will end with its final episodes airing in November. A new series has been commissioned, which will be available on both Paramount Network and Paramount+ in December.
Kevin Costner’s departure from “Yellowstone” was announced after months of speculation. He intends to focus on the filming schedule for his upcoming two-part Western feature, “Horizon.”
Chris McCarthy, the president and CEO of Showtime and MTV Entertainment Studios, expressed confidence in the success of the upcoming ‘Yellowstone’ sequel, based on the show’s previous success and the talent of the creative team and cast.
Information about the storyline and actors involved in the upcoming sequel series has not been revealed yet. However, it has been reported that a new show produced by Taylor Sheridan will feature characters from “Yellowstone,” and Matthew McConaughey is being considered for a main part.
The individuals responsible for creating “Yellowstone” include Sheridan and John Linson, while executive producers consist of John and Art Linson, Costner, Glasser, Yari, Kay, and Voros. Both the original series and its sequel are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios.
The CEO of 101 Studios, David Glasser, stated that he is thrilled to keep the Dutton story going and share it with audiences all over the world.
The TV show “Yellowstone” features the Dutton family and their Montana ranch. The November 2022 premiere of the first half of Season 5 attracted 17 million viewers.
The sequel series offers Paramount and Sheridan a chance to create a new series featuring many of the original “Yellowstone” cast members without any potential issues with Costner. This is noteworthy because “Yellowstone” is currently available for streaming on Peacock.
Sheridan has a significant contractual agreement with Paramount, encompassing various television shows like “Yellowstone” spinoffs “1883” and “1923,” “Mayor of Kingstown,” and “Tulsa King.” Additionally, he has upcoming programs like “Lioness,” “Land Man,” and “Lawmen: Bass Reeves,” and is presently working on developing several others.
