And from higher up they let it be known that “we are only at the beginning”. Here’s what we know about the new series.
Other stories and other characters will animate the universe of Yellowstone while the most followed series on American TV prepares to take a bow and greet the public. On the occasion of the announcement that the remaining episodes of the fifth and final season will be broadcast in the United States from November next year (delayed compared to what was initially expected due to the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strike which have stopped production), Paramount Network formalizes the order of two new tentatively titled spin-offs 1944 e 2024.
Yellowstone, the new spin-offs 1944 and 2024: What we know
1944 is the latest in a series of prequels created by the writer, director and executive producer Taylor Sheridan. It is added to the conclusion 1883 and the sequel 1923, of which the second season is awaited. Like the latter, the new series will focus on an earlier generation of the Dutton family. With regard to 2024no plot details are currently available, other than that the story is expected to be set sometime after the finale of Yellowstone.
Variety reports that the contemporary spin-off will present new characters and new locations, however also involving figures already known to the public Yellowstone. And as has been reported in the past, it is not excluded that one of its protagonists, if not the protagonist, the one who is destined to take the place of John Dutton of Kevin Costnercould be played by the Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey.
“In five years, we have transformed Yellowstone from a hit cable show in the US, with five million viewers, to a hit global franchise with over 100 million fans worldwide and multiple extensions – and we’re just getting started,” says President and CEO of Showtime & MTV Entertainment Studios Chris McCarthy in a statement. “Following the success of 1883 e 1923the new spin-offs, 1944 e 2024will take audiences on an emotional, unprecedented and unexpected journey with a complex and compelling narrative that has become a hallmark of the franchise and helped transform it into a global cultural phenomenon, thanks to the creative mind of Taylor Sheridan.”
For now, however, there are no updates regarding the other contemporary spin-off announced at the beginning of 2021, 6666. The series was said to tell the story of the Four Sixes Ranch, a Texas ranch the size of no other in America. Still operating as it did two centuries earlier, this is a place where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge and each thing is always outpaced by the next. 6666 is also a place where we work hard to raise the best horses and cattle in the world, and where cowboys like no other are born and raised.
