‘Yellowstone’ Nears Final Stretch, New Prequel And 2024 Sequel Around The Corner

Yellowstone is coming back for one last hoorah but The Dutton Saga continues to expand
Yellowstone season 5

Yellowstone is close to riding off into the sunset, but as long as the sun continues to rise The Dutton Saga continues to fascinate us with tales chronicling the entire family throughout the years from 1883 to 1923 to 1944 to the very near future 2024.

The second half of Yellowstone’s fifth and final season will premiere on Paramount Network in 2024. After we bid farewell to the hit Neo-Western, we will say howdy to a new prequel tentatively titled 1944, as well as a sequel tentatively titled 2024 that will fill the void in Yellowstone’s absence.

No Yellowstone Or Dutton Family Drama Right Now

Yellowstone Season 5 Part 2 was supposed to premiere in November, with the modern follow-up initially slated to premiere in December. Production on those shows got delayed due to studios not paying their writers and actors fairly, now we must wait until they premiere next year.

Yellowstone star Kevin Costner’s future on the show has been the subject of speculation following a controversy over the size of his availability in the fifth season. According to Deadline, it is possible for him to be in the final episodes.


Matthew McConaughey

Beyond the borders of Yellowstone, though unconfirmed, it’s been reported that Matthew McConaughey is expected to lead 2024, with familiar faces from the original series joining him.

1944 and 2024 follow the previous anthology installments 1883 and 1923. All Yellowstone series are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios. The spinoffs are carried by Paramount Plus.

“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. 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.”

Yellowstone follows the Dutton family who owns the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Morality is deeply grey, there is no good or evil in the series, but there is family, and the Dutton family will stop at nothing to protect what’s theirs in a land stained with so much blood.

The Yellowstone universe will continue exploring the Dutton empire from past to present with new locations and characters, as well as characters we love, hate, or love to hate crossing over along the way.

“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.”

– David Glasser, CEO, 101 Studios

Yellowstone was co-created by Taylor Sheridan & John Linson. Executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari, Stephen Kay, and Christina Voros. The series currently airs edited reruns on CBS, you can also check it out raw and unfiltered on Peacock.
