Paramount Network announced today that Yellowstone – TV’s #1 show – will move to November 2024 for its epic final installment with two more spinoffs forthcoming: 1944 (w/t) and 2024 (w/t).
All Yellowstone series are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios. The show has previously featured performance horses such as EquiStat Elite $63 Million Sire Metallic Cat, Smartly Starstruck and Nineteen Ten as well as EquiStat Elite $5 Million Rider Todd Bergen, EquiStat Elite $1 Million Rider Kelby Phillips, Tracer Gilson, NRCHA Hall of Fame member Bob Avila and EquiStat Elite $3 Million Rider Corey Cushing. Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan even has over $44,000 in rider earnings according to EquiStat.
“Within five years, we grew Yellowstone from a hit U.S. cable show with five million viewers into a global hit franchise with over 100 million fans around the world and multiple extensions – and, we’re just getting started,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, Showtime & MTV Entertainment Studios. “On the heels of 1883 and 1923’s success, our new planned spinoffs, 1944 and 2024, will take audiences on a thrilling, new and unexpected journey with the complex and compelling storytelling that has become a hallmark of the franchise and has helped turn it into a worldwide cultural phenomenon – thanks to the creative mastermind of Taylor Sheridan.”
“The global success of Yellowstone continues to thrill and excite us at 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch. This has been such an exhilarating ride with our partners at MTV Entertainment Studios and we can’t wait to bring 1944 and 2024 to audiences everywhere,” said David Glasser, CEO, 101 Studios.
Originally slated to premiere later this year, Yellowstone production schedules shifted due to the dual strikes.
Yellowstone chronicles the Dutton family who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and vicious business rivalries.
Yellowstone is co-created by Oscar®-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Wind River, Hell or High Water and Sicario) & John Linson. Executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari, Stephen Kay and Christina Voros.
