The John Dutton universe is set to expand even further with the Yellowstone 6666 release date, and we’ve got all the details you could possibly need to prepare.
What is the Yellowstone 6666 release date? The power of Kevin Costner and John Dutton should be underestimated at your peril, as the cowboy drama just keeps on coming.
The Yellowstone universe has covered the past and present of the Dutton legacy, and will soon expand even further with a new spin-off, Yellowstone 6666. As another spin-off of the Yellowstone series, 6666 will take us away from the dramas of John Dutton and his family and instead focus on a new ranch altogether.
Rest assured, 6666 will likely have a fighting chance at becoming one of the best TV series just like the rest of the Yellowstone timeline. So, when is the Yellowstone 6666 release date? Who will be a part of the show? And what kind of stories are we going to see unfold? Saddle up: we’ve got all you need to know.
Yellowstone 6666 release date speculation
Yellowstone 6666 is set to be released in late 2023, but don’t be surprised if it’s pushed back to early 2024.
It’s been a difficult time for Yellowstone fans, with the news of the flagship series being canceled hitting hard. Taylor Sheridan and the team will probably be scrambling to wrap things up over there, so don’t be surprised if there ends up being a slight delay on 6666.
Yellowstone 6666 cast speculation
While no one has officially been added to the Yellowstone 6666 cast, it’s very likely Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White) will take on the lead role.
In Yellowstone season 4, the character was sent to the 6666 ranch and decided not to return. If Jimmy is there, then it’s also likely his fiancée Emily (Kathryn Kelly) will be hanging around, too.
Considering Jimmy has bumped into Taylor Sheridan (as Travis) during his travels several times, we’d expect to see the series creator, too. Plus, he actually owns the 6666 ranch in real life, so he’s not far from home.
Here’s the expected Yellowstone 6666 cast list:
Jefferson White as Jimmy Hurdstrom
Kathryn Kelly as Emily
Taylor Sheridan as Travis
What is Yellowstone 6666 about?
Thanks to a press release from Paramount, we know that the Yellowstone 6666 plot will tell the story of the fabled four-sixes ranch, a place “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.”
Despite sounding like some kind of demonic horror movie, this series is actually all about a pretty normal building — more specifically, a ranch. Paramount adds: “Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666.”
Okay, now it sounds more like one of the best Westerns from days gone by. It’s the kind of story that would make a classic Clint Eastwood movie tick, isn’t it?
We also know why the ranch is called 6666 (pronounced four-sixes); legend has it that Samuel Burnett won the ranch in a card game with four sixes. But, the Burnett family insists the name derives from the first herd of cattle on the ranch being branded with four sixes. Even more fascinating, though, is the fact Taylor Sheridan, the writer of the show, actually owns the real ranch upon which the series is based.
Is there a Yellowstone 6666 trailer?
Since we’re still a while off, there’s no Yellowstone 6666 trailer just yet, but we’d expect one in late 2023 or early 2024.
We’ll be sure and keep you updated as and when a trailer drops. In the meantime, get to know Jimmy a little better in the below featurette, which examines the young ranch hand’s path to becoming a cowboy so far. If he does wind up being the star of the new show, it’s worth knowing about him.
Where can I watch Yellowstone 6666?
Yellowstone 6666 will be available to watch on the Paramount Network, originally having been slated to run on Paramount Plus.
So far, all the Yellowstone spin-offs have lived on one of the best streaming services, but this marks the move from streaming to linear television.
That said, we don’t doubt that the series will become available on Paramount Plus at some stage. In the meantime, you can sign up to the platform above and start brushing up on your Dutton history. Don’t forget to check out everything new on Paramount Plus this month, too.
How many episodes of Yellowstone 6666 will there be?
As it stands, there’s no official confirmation on the number of Yellowstone 6666 episodes, but we think it’ll be somewhere between eight and ten.
We know that Yellowstone has had ten episodes per season, and 1923 had eight, so we can probably expect it to fall within this range.
That’s all we know about the Yellowstone 6666 release date for now.
