Taylor Sheridan is a BUSY man.
The Yellowstone creator/director just signed a big ol’ deal with Paramount network to create a ton of new shows for Paramount, Paramount+ and other ViacomCBS networks.
Right before The Super Bowl, it was announced that a new Yellowstone prequel was in the works titled Y:1883.
Set to premiere later this year, Y: 1883 picks up the Dutton family story from the very beginning and chronicles their journey across the Great Plains in search of a better future in the American West, eventually settling in Montana where the Dutton empire was born.
The 10-second teaser didn’t offer much, but Yellowstone fans are already PUMPED.
And now, it’s been announced that another Taylor Sheridan project will be a Yellowstone spinoff series with the working title of 6666. According to Hollywood Reporter, it will tell the story of the West Texas 6666 Ranch, founded by Captain Samuel Burk Burnett in 1900.
“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.
The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made.”
And the best part? Ryan Bingham and Jefferson White will be reprising their roles as Walker and Jimmy Hurdstrom for the new spinoff, however it remains to be seen if that will mean the end of their career on Yellowstone.
Although, we do know that parts of Season 4 were shot in Texas this past year, so we’ll have to see where the stories intermingle.
Like Yellowstone, the new spinoff will be executive produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, Ron Burkle and Bob Yari.
Sheridan will also be working on a show called Mayor of Kingstown, starring Jeremy Renner, and another called Land Man, a story about West Texas oil rigs.
Oh, and Yellowstone Season 4 returns this June.
