12 Upcoming Western Movies and Shows to Look Forward to in 2024

From Kevin Costner's 'Horizon' to a long-awaited 'Young Guns' sequel.

There are a ton of promising Western movies and series on the horizon — there's even one called "Horizon." After the overwhelming success of "Yellowstone," studios are throwing their cowboy hats into the ring to create more Westerns — and fill the coming void after the "Yellowstone" series finale in November 2024.

For longtime Western fans, the moment feels like a sort of renaissance. That's not to say there haven't been plenty of phenomenal Westerns in recent years. On the contrary, the past couple of decades have seen some of the best the genre has produced, including "No Country for Old Men," "True Grit," "There Will Be Blood" and "The Power of the Dog." In 2023, the Martin Scorcese-helmed "Killers of the Flower Moon" is poised to sweep the Oscars. Nevertheless, Westerns have felt few and far between, especially when compared with the '50s and '60s, when cowboys were as prominent on screen as superheroes are today. Perhaps, to an extent, today's superhero fatigue is contributing to the new dawn of the Western.

More so, the Western renaissance is fueled by studios finally realizing the blind spot they had for a large portion of American viewers. Cowboys were cast aside in favor of series about powerful media dynasties, dating in the city, and sprawling fantasy worlds. But when "Yellowstone" handily seized the throne as America's No. 1 series, these execs were given irrefutable proof that a massive audience of Western fans is being woefully underserved. Prepare for that demand to be filled tenfold.

Here are 12 upcoming Westerns to keep an eye on.
