3 New 'Yellowstone' Series Reportedly Planned, Including 1940s and 1960s Prequels

Just when we thought the Dutton-verse had reached its limit...

Rumors are swirling of three more potential projects in Taylor Sheridan's ever-expanding Yellowstone television empire. As reported by Deadline, Sheridan is currently in talks to add a second season to the upcoming Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren starrer, 1923

But that's not all. There's word of two totally new spinoff series that will follow the Dutton family throughout the 1940s and the 1960s. 

1923, an 8-episode Yellowstone prequel series (much like the Sam Elliott-led 1883), will debut Sunday, Dec. 18th, on Paramount+. The eagerly-anticipated show is billed as a sprawling look back at the ancestral Duttons who endured a historic drought, Prohibition and the Great Depression. (Here's a Dutton family tree to help you brush up.)

Per Deadline, the streamer is eyeing another 8-episode run for the historical epic. Negotiations are reportedly underway for the cast to return for a second season. In addition to Ford and Mirren, series regulars include former James Bond Timothy Dalton and Game of Thrones's Jerome Flynn, among others. 

It seems prolific producer Taylor Sheridan won't be satisfied until every decade of the Dutton dynasty's existence has been dramatized. (And, honestly, neither will we.)

Sheridan is reportedly noodling ideas for two new limited series, set in the 1940s and the 1960s, following the Dutton family's struggle to maintain their ancestral seat, the Yellowstone ranch. 

Sheridan fans are truly suffering an embarrassment of riches at the moment. To wit:

  • The flagship series Yellowstone is currently airing its fifth season on the Paramount Network. 
  • Sheridan's Paramount+ series Tulsa King, which stars Sylvester Stallone, was just renewed for a second season after a record-breaking debut.
  • In January, Sheridan's Jeremy Renner starrer Mayor of Kingstown returns for its second season on Paramount+. 
  • Land Man, starring Billy Bob Thornton, is still in development. The series is set during an oil boom in West Texas. 

Oh, and that Four Sixes ranch spinoff series, 6666, is evidently still a thing — although there's no word yet on casting decisions. Plus, 1883: The Bass Reeves Story?! (Does your head hurt? My head hurts.)

Don't bet against Taylor Sheridan. At this rate, the producer will rule every TV screen in the country. But, hey. No complaints here.
