A few weeks back, the Paramount Network gave us a glimpse of what’s to come by saying there’s a “whole Taylor Sheridan universe coming your way.”
And I’d say that was an understatement.
Taylor Sheridan has to be the busiest man on the planet, because the guy is cranking out show after show, and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
We already know that there will be a fifth season of Yellowstone coming out in the near future, with a possibility of the show reaching six or seven seasons.
We’ve already seen the success that 1883 has brought so far, and there will be more episodes ordered of that as well.
And speaking of the “whole Taylor Sheridan universe,” let’s take a look at everything we have to look forward to from the man:
Season 5 is set to start production in May with a target date to premiere sometime in the fall. They’ll be extending it to 14 episodes, which will be packaged in two 7-episode parts.
And, according to Paramount, Season 5 will be used to “launch several new streaming shows” from Taylor Sheridan. And fans aren’t exactly happy about that last part…
Starring Kevin Costner as Yellowstone Ranch patriarch John Dutton, Yellowstone is the flagship series for the Taylor Sheridan universe.
We know that “more episodes” of 1883 have been ordered, but we’re unclear if that means a second season is on the way. My guess is probably not and that the newly announced 1932 will be used to tell the next chapter of the Dutton story.
The only thing that remains to be seen now is just how long Elsa Dutton (Isabel May) is gonna live.
This spinoff series from Yellowstone will feature Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White) and his new fiancée’s life at the Four Sixes Ranch, we saw them make their way their during the Season 4 finale.
However, we know that Kathryn Kelly (Jimmy’s fiancée Emily) was elevated to a season regular for Yellowstone Season 5, which means one thing… Jefferson White (Jimmy Hurdstrom), who has his Four Sixes Ranch spinoff series in the works, will also be a part of Season 5.
Another prequel series to Yellowstone, this documents the Dutton family after settling in Montana at the Yellowstone.
It also will touch on the hardships and experiences the family faced during Prohibition and The Great Depression.
The Tulsa King
This project features the great Sylvester Stallone, and is about an East Coast mobster who moves to the Midwest, taking his business elsewhere.
According to The Wall Street Journal, production is scheduled for March.
The idea came about after Sheridan and Stallone bonded over horses after a meeting in Burbank, California.
This one is based on a real-life CIA program, and will follow a Marine recruited to befriend a daughter of a terrorist, in an effort to take down the terrorist organization.
Production for the show is slated to begin in June, and will feature Zoe Saldana as Joe, the chief of the CIA’s Lioness Program and star of the show.
Nicole Kidman is an executive producer for the show as well.
This series features Billy Bob Thornton, who plays a crisis manager for an oil company during the west Texas oil boom.
Production for the project begins in 2023.
The series will star David Oyelowo, who plays the “first African-American marshal west of the Mississippi, policing the entire Oklahoma territories,” according to Sheridan.
The show will take place in the 1880s.
Mayor of Kingstown
This show debuted back in November of last year, and is based around the McLusky family in Kingstown, Michigan, a family full of power brokers between police, criminals, inmates, prison guards, and politicians, as they tackle the issues of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality within the prison system.
It’s officially been green-lit for a second season.
