Cole Hauser as Rip Wheeler in Yellowstone

The Ultimate Guide to Every Upcoming 'Yellowstone' Spinoff

Taylor Sheridan has four new prequels and spinoffs in the works.

Fear not, "Yellowstone" fans. The forthcoming series finale will not be the Dutton family's last stand. Series co-creator Taylor Sheridan is developing four all-new "Yellowstone" spinoff series and prequels.

When John Dutton rides off into the sunset (we hope!) later this year, Kevin Costner's departure from the "Yellowstone" universe won't sting too badly thanks to a raft of awesome sister series currently in the works at Paramount. Taylor Sheridan is currently casting for the sequel series "2024," which could see Rip and Beth return alongside Matthew McConaughey and Michelle Pfeiffer in unknown lead roles.

Sheridan is also planning at least two new prequel series. "1944" is billed as a sequel to "1923," to be filmed at the Chief Joseph Ranch in Montana that doubles as the Dutton family seat. Additionally, a still-untitled prequel set in the 1960s could showcase a young John Dutton. As for the long-gestating "Yellowstone" spinoff series "6666," set at Sheridan's historic Four Sixes Ranch? Still on the docket.

Here's your guide to every "Yellowstone" spinoff and prequel series Taylor Sheridan is cooking up:

'2024' Sequel Series

"2024" is the de facto continuation of "Yellowstone." Initially slated to premiere after the flagship series wraps its five-season run this November, Matthew McConaughey and Michelle Pfeiffer are in talks to star.

Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler), Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton) and Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton) are in negotiations to reprise their "Yellowstone" roles in "2024," but reported salary disagreements may prevent their return.

'1944' Prequel Series

The prequel series "1944" has been in development since Feb. 2023, with Paramount officially announcing it had been given the green light in Nov. 2023. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it's safe to assume "1944" will dramatize the effects of World War II on the Dutton family.

Intriguingly, EVP of 101 Studios Tom Prince described "1944" as the "sequel" to "1923." He also added that the series will be filmed at the Chief Joseph Ranch in Montana, which doubles as the Dutton family ranch. Sounds like we'll see a post-"1923" chapter in the Dutton story.

'6666' Spinoff Series

The historic Four Sixes Ranch in Texas exists in the "Yellowstone" universe and, in real life, is partly owned by Taylor Sheridan. In Season 4, Jimmy (Jefferson White) learned cowboying at the famously tough 6666; when we last left the Dutton clan in Season 5, they were moving cattle down to Texas with the help of the 6666.

The '6666' spinoff will be filmed at the ranch itself, "where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge ... [and] where world class cowboys are born and made."

Sheridan announced in 2023 that the series is delayed indefinitely. The Four Sixes is a fully operational horse and cattle ranch, and he won't impact the business by rushing out the series. "I do the shows for the ranch," Sheridan said.

Untitled Prequel Series Set in the 1960s


A mysterious 1960s-set "Yellowstone" prequel was initially reported back in 2022. Sheridan appeared to confirm the rumors in a 2023 tell-all, saying "As long as I do my job well and people don't bore of the genre, I think there will be enough for many more [prequels] — three or four."

No plot details have been released, but it's possible the series will introduce a young John Dutton. The one thing Sheridan has promised? "The more that you move into the modern era, the bigger that spectacle becomes." Sounds like he's planning blowout set pieces for "1966," which would be the most recent prequel in the timeline to-date.

'1923' Season 2

"1923" was the second prequel series out of the gate, following the success of "1883." It stars Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren as ancestral Duttons battling a powerful mining operation and succession issues on the ranch in the Roaring Twenties.

After filming was delayed due to the Hollywood strikes, the second and final season goes into production sometime in early 2024. All the main cast members will return. We think "1923" Season 2 will go out with a bang.
