While the popular Paramount Network series “Yellowstone” brings major drama to its fans, it also brings beautiful scenery and realistic sets.
According to what Carly Curry, the show’s set decorator, recently told Deadline, there are several key factors that go into play in making the show’s sets look as believable as they do. One thing that helps her is that her husband owns his own ranch. This gives her a first-hand look at the lives of cowboys and how they live.
Curry has learned even more about the lives of cowboys thanks to some members of the cast of “Yellowstone.”
See, the show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, has hired several real-life cowboys to be part of the show’s cast. These real-life cowboys have aided Curry and the production crew during filming. They have done so by sharing their own experiences about cowboy life with the crew.
In talking about how the real-life cowboys help her and other members of the “Yellowstone” crew, Curry also shared details about which set the cast prefers above the others. She also said that the show goes to great lengths to make the show seem as realistic as possible.
“We don’t do fake on ‘Yellowstone,’ and the bunkhouse is everyone’s favorite set,” Curry also said.

She then revealed which cowboy-turned-actor has been the most helpful. In fact, he taught her more about how cowboys live than even the cowboy she lives with at home.
“Forrie Smith, who plays Lloyd in our show, he is the real deal, a cowboy who lived that life,” Curry said. When we started putting our details into this, I had a pretty good sense of how cowboys live because I live with one. But talking to Forrie, he was able to give us a lot of little details you wouldn’t think of.”
A of those “little details” Smith helped add to the “Yellowstone” set included items most real-life cowboys usually have on hand.
“Like the bottle of Tylenol by his bed, for his arthritis, the snuff cans that are all over the place, the Louis L’Amour paperbacks,” Curry also said. “When Taylor walked in for the first time, he was kind of blown away. He only had a few scenes written for that, but once he saw what was there, he brought it. He said, ‘I definitely need more scenes in the bunkhouse.'”
You can see the sets of “Yellowstone” when the series returns for its fourth season later this year. While no specific date has been set, the show is expected to return this fall. Late November or during the holiday season have been suggested as a window for the show’s return.
Several key cast members are expected to be part of the season four drama. These actors include key figures such as Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes, and Wes Bentley. Also joining the “Yellowstone” cast will be Jacki Weaver, Piper Perabo, Kathryn Kelly, and Finn Little.
Ahead of the premiere of the fourth season, the show earned its first Emmy Award nomination.
