Remember when Taylor Sheridan was just the guy who played the good cop in Sons of Anarchy? Or when he was just the guy who wrote really masculine action-dramas for men like Sicario and Hell or High Water? Now Sheridan basically owns Paramount Network, and his Yellowstone franchise is the most popular in all of television.The season 4 premiere was the highest-rated show with over 14M viewers, and the expectations are just as high now that season 5 is on the way.
A new teaser for Yellowstone season 5 debuted last night, hinting at a potentially-violent expansion of the Dutton family ranch. Kevin Costner returns as patriarch John, joined by Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards, Ian Bohen, Finn Little, Ryan Bingham and Gil Birmingham with Mo Brings Plenty, Wendy Moniz, Jen Landon, and Kathryn Kelly.
An infusion of star power is coming along, too, as Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, Kylie Rogers, Kyle Red Silverstein, Kai Caster, Lainey Wilson, Lilli Kay, and Dawn Olivieri.
The growth of Yellowstone has been incredible to watch unfold. Already spinoff 1883 has been a hit, and soon it’ll be joined by 1923 starring the remarkable duo of Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, plus Yellowstone: 6666, and 1883: The Bass Reeves Story. And none of this includes Sheridan’s other non-Yellowstone shows for Paramount, such as The Mayor of Kingstown starring Jeremy Renner and The Tulsa King with Sylvester Stallone.
