The strange thing about Yellowstone season 5 right now is that, despite the fact that it hasn’t been officially renewed, the producers are still looking ahead. That makes sense, given that a season 5 order is essentially a formality at this point.
With that in mind, how about we take a look into the future?
According to a new piece over at Deadline, which includes an extensive interview with writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan, filming for the new season will most likely begin in May. This would allow the cast and crew to take advantage of the best weather in Montana, possibly allowing them to have more episodes ready in the fall of 2022. We don’t think there will be any interest in moving away from this release window after season 4 produced the show’s highest ratings ever by a wide margin.
What else stands out from the interview is that it appears that a potential 6666 spin-off is still in its early stages. While we see Jefferson White’s character, Jimmy, spend some time at this ranch (also known as the Four Sixes), there is no formal plan for a show at this time. We believe this is more of a concept being worked on, and we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds. For the time being, the focus is on Yellowstone and the prequel 1883, which will be available on the Paramount+ streaming service this weekend.
If there’s one big question we have about the prequel, it’s this: Is it a bad idea to air it at the same time as the main Yellowstone? There is a risk that you will overwhelm people with too much content at once.
