We’ve put together a concise summary of everything you should look forward to. Continue reading to find out whether Yellowstone will be back with Season 6 or not.
Yellowstone Season 6: What is the current status?
To get straight to the point: The answer remains a mystery right now, and speculation has been rife about the fate of the show. The fans are eagerly awaiting every update and announcement from the creators and the network, hoping to get any hints or news about the future of their beloved series. But no official confirmation about the sixth season has been verified by the network yet.
Deadline previously reported that the show may be heading to an end soon, as per the ongoing rumors it has been said that a new spin-off series starring Matthew McConaughey will take its place. The publication also alleges that the basis of the problem is a dispute with Yellowstone actor Kevin Costner over the filming schedule for the show. We would like to highlight that Costner’s lawyer, Marty Singer, refuted the assertions.
Sources have stated, Costner only planned to shoot for 50 days during the first half of the current season, despite having initially set a limit of 65 days for the filming of Yellowstone. According to insiders, Paramount Network turned down Costner’s most recent proposal and chose to go on to the other show.
The subject of the current negotiations between everyone involved is a Yellowstone franchise extension that Sheridan will script and star McConaughey in. Negotiations with the True Detective star are now underway which will be disclosed later.
On the other hand, it is unclear which members of the Yellowstone cast will transition to the McConaughey-led series, while several of the big names are anticipated to appear.
“We have no news to report. Kevin Costner is a big part of Yellowstone and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come. Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built. Matthew McConaughey is a phenomenal talent with whom we’d love to partner,” a Paramount Network spokesperson told Deadline.
While we’d want to suggest that there are some things that can guarantee another season, the sad truth is that a lot of that is out of anyone’s control. Moreover, after looking at all the comments by the network it is safe to say that it’s quite possible that Yellowstone will end with the second half of the current season.
We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds which will be confirmed once the second part of the fifth season concludes in the coming months.
Yellowstone: What are the other spinoff series?
1883 is an American Western drama television miniseries created by Taylor Sheridan that premiered on December 19, 2021, on Paramount+. The series follows the post-Civil War generation of the Dutton family as they leave Tennessee, journey to Fort Worth, Texas, and join a wagon train undertaking the arduous journey west to Oregon, before settling in Montana to establish what would eventually become the Yellowstone Ranch.
1923 is an American Western drama television series that premiered on December 18, 2022, on Paramount+. The series is a prequel to the Paramount Network series Yellowstone and serves as a sequel to the series 1883. The series follows a generation of the Dutton family in 1923, during a time of various hardships including Prohibition, drought, and the early stages of the Great Depression, which affected Montana long before the 1929 Stock Market Crash.
Bass Reeves is an upcoming Western created by Taylor Sheridan. It is based on the life of the first black Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves and is also the fourth installment into the Yellowstone franchise. It tells the story of the legendary lawman of the wild west. Reeves worked in the post-Reconstruction era as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory, capturing over 3,000 of the most dangerous criminals without ever being wounded, leading him to become the greatest frontier hero in American history. The series is currently filming in Texas.
1944 is another prequel series; not much has been revealed about this series, but it has been confirmed that the show is set during the titular year and is reportedly in development as of February 2023. It will serve as a sequel to 1923 and will be filmed in the Bitterroot Valley.
6666 is another planned spin-off that is set in the present day on the Four Sixes Ranch in Texas. It will premiere on Paramount Network in 2023. The 6666 Ranch is also featured during the fourth and fifth seasons of Yellowstone. The official synopsis reads, “Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing.”
While you wait for more updates, stream the series exclusively on Paramount+, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options. The show can also be watched on FuboTV, and you can also rent or purchase it on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu, based on viewers’ preferences and locations.
