Yellowstone introduced us to the Dutton family and launched an entire franchise of equally compelling dramas, but all good things must come to an end. This hit Paramount series will end its run with Season 5, but its sequel is already on the way.
Season 5 of the hit neo-western drama premiered back in November last year, and its second half is just around the corner. After a lot of speculations about the future of this series, Paramount finally confirmed Yellowstone is ending its run, but a follow-up is already on the way, with Matthew McConaughey in early negotiations to play the lead role.
Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios, confirmed that Yellowstone is ending after five seasons, but the future of this franchise is looking bright.
“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,” sad McCarthy in a statement.
Yellowstone became huge ratings hit since its premiere in 2019, and it spawned several successful spinoffs, including 1883 and 1923, with a few more on the way. The series is led by Kevin Costner, with Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, and Gil Birmingham in supporting roles.
