“Yellowstone” Season 4 is set to premiere this upcoming summer. But when did the cast and crew wrap filming on the latest season’s episodes?
According to the Instagram account of the Chief Joseph Ranch, the real-world setting for the Dutton ranch on the show, “Yellowstone” wrapped filming in November of last year.
“That’s a wrap on filming Season 4!” the ranch posted last November, alongside a photo of the sun setting over the familiar barn and two horses. “Who is excited for the premiere in June?”
Some of the cast members also gave away when “Yellowstone” had finished filming Season 4. For example, Ian Bohen, who plays Ryan on the show, posted to Instagram a photo of himself and Denim Richards, who plays Colby, standing beneath a clear blue sky. He captioned it, “That’s a wrap on Season 4. Safe travels my friends. @yellowstone.”
‘Yellowstone’ Co-Creator Taylor Sheridan Has Two Spinoffs in the Works
Meanwhile, Sheridan was not content to just rest on his laurels with “Yellowstone.” Following the breakout success of his modern-day Western, Sheridan also developed two “Yellowstone” spinoffs, “Y:1883” and “6666.”
“Y:1883” is a prequel to “Yellowstone.” It tells the story of the Dutton family as they traveled through the Great Plains and obtained the Montana land on which the Dutton ranch currently sits. It’s also a journey from poverty to prosperity, with the Dutton family heading West to find a better life.
The Paramount Network has already released a preview clip from that show. It aired during Super Bowl LV. In the clip, we see a snowy scene with a sign barely visible through the snowstorm. It reads “Y 1883.” A gravelly voice says, “I don’t care if you live or die. But should you live, you tell them about me.”
“6666” is about the Four Sixes ranch in West Texas. The ranch is famous for raising the best horses and livestock in the world and for producing the toughest cowboys. The show will reportedly feature some cast members from “Yellowstone.” And it will be streaming on Paramount+.
101 Studios CEO David Glasser said in a statement that the two new spinoffs will, like “Yellowstone,” offer fans and “immersive universe” of storytelling.
“Taylor, Paramount+ and MTV Entertainment Studios have been incredible partners to us at 101 over the years,” he said, per Entertainment Weekly. “Together, we have been able to build Yellowstone into an immersive universe for audiences globally. And that is what we intend to do with these series as well. We will be introducing new characters and story lines alongside world-class talent and creators. We are very much looking forward to bringing these shows to life.”
Between Season 4 of “Yellowstone” and the new spinoffs, which are still in development, “Yellowstone” fans should have plenty of new content to look forward to in the future.
