Yellowstone is coming to an end, but it seems no one is quite ready to say goodbye to the franchise as of yet.
It has officially been announced that the Yellowstone series will begin airing its final episodes in Nov., but never fear, the Dutton family will live on. Paramount has given a straight-to-series order for a sequel series. The expectation is that it will debut after Yellowstone ends, contingent on the state of the Writers Guild strike.
Nothing is known about the new series as of yet, or how it will tie into the original. Rumors have been circulating for some time that Matthey McConaughey is in talks for the lead role, but there has been no official comment.
“Yellowstone has been the cornerstone on which we have launched an entire universe of global hits — from 1883 to Tulsa King, and I am confident our Yellowstone sequel will be another big hit, thanks to the brilliant creative mind of Taylor Sheridan and our incredible casts who bring these shows to life,” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios.
The new series will first debut on Paramount Network and then be followed up on Paramount Plus.
