Taylor Sheridan: Everything to Know About All of the 'Yellowstone' Creator's Upcoming Series

As major Yellowstone fans, we love that the Paramount Network has been expanding the incredible universe created by Taylor Sheridan. We've already enjoyed the prequel series 1883, and more is on the way, thanks to Sheridan's overall deal with ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group. While a few more spinoffs for Yellowstone are coming, there are also a few more original series Sheridan is working on.

Here's what we know about all of the new shows Taylor Sheridan currently has in the works.

Potential 40s and 60s set Yellowstone prequels

While there are no details at this time, Deadline reports that Taylor Sheridan is considering two new limited series following the Dutton family's difficulties holding onto their ranch in the 40s and 60s.

Mayor of Kingstown 

Jeremy Renner stars in the series and is also a co-creator. It follows the story of the McLusky family in Kingstown, Michigan, "where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry." Antoine Fuqua, the director of Denzel Washington's Oscar-winning film Training Day, is also an executive producer and co-creator.

"When Taylor told me about Mayor of Kingstown, I immediately wanted to be a part of it," said Fuqua. "The series offers a comprehensive look into the brutal prison system where sociopolitical issues run rampant. Prisons are a forgotten world to most of the population and yet represent a microcosm of society as a whole."

After a successful first season on Paramount's streaming service Paramount+, Mayor of Kingstown has been renewed for a second season which is currently in production.

1883

Yellowstone prequel 1883 debuted on Paramount+ and was an instant hit. It follows the story of James Dutton (Tim McGraw), his wife Margaret (Faith Hill), their son John (Audie Rick), and daughter Elsa (Isabel May). Also starring Sam Elliott and LaMonica Garrett, the series follows a wagon train of immigrants (and the Duttons) traveling across the Great Plains from Texas up north for a better life. It beautifully establishes how the Dutton family came to settle down on their massive Montana ranch that we know so well in Yellowstone.

1883 has not been renewed for a second season.

1923

After the success of 1883, the Paramount Network decided we needed another new spinoff. This will follow a different generation of Duttons "during the time of western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression." We see John Dutton's (Kevin Costner) ancestors in this era of the Duttons' story. Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren have been confirmed as the two leads of the upcoming series as Jacob and Cara Dutton. The series recently announced that it will span two 8-episode seasons.

Tulsa King

Tulsa King will feature Sylvester Stallone in his first starring role on a television series. According to Variety, the new show "follows New York mafia capo Dwight "The General" Manfredi (Stallone), who, as he's released from prison after 25 years, is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a "crew" from a group of unlikely characters to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet."

Lioness

Sheridan developed this new series alongside Hallmark star Jill Wagner. It follows a marine who gets recruited to befriend a terrorist's daughter to bring down the organization. Zoe Saldaña has signed on to play Joe, a strong-willed, hard-nosed, station chief of the CIA's Lioness Program, tasked with training, managing and leading her female undercover operatives working to assassinate the world's most dangerous terrorists. Nicole Kidman has also signed on as executive producer.

Bass Reeves

This new limited series will bring to life the legendary Black cowboy Bass Reeves. David Oyelowo, recognizable for playing Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, has signed on to play the historic Wild West lawman. Production is expected to begin at some point in 2022.

Land Man 

Sheridan is so good at making a modern western, we're excited that he's got a couple of new shows set in Texas! Based on the 11-part podcast BoomtownLand Man is " a modern day tale of fortune seeking in the world of oil rigs. The series is an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it's reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics."

At this point, Billy Bob Thornton is the only attached star. He's set to lead the new series as a crisis manager for an oil company.

?Yellowstone spinoff, 6666 (WORKING TITLE)

Because we couldn't be excited enough about a Taylor Sheridan show set in Texas, this spinoff series sounds like we'll get all the drama and action we love at the Dutton family's ranch in Montana but this time set in the Lone Star State. John Linson, who served as executive producer on Sons of Anarchy as well as Yellowstone, has signed on to produce along with his father, producer Art Linson.

"Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing ... The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made."

If this name sounds familiar that's because we caught a glimpse of the 6666 in Yellowstone season 4 when Jimmy (Jefferson White) gets sent down to Texas to become a man. We last saw Jimmy and his new fiance Emily leaving Montana to go back to the Lone Star State. They will undoubtedly be two of the main leads of this new series that will really give us a look into the life of a modern cowboy.
