Since the premiere of Yellowstone in 2018, the narrative of the Dutton family has sparked three (and counting) spinoffs for the Paramount Network.

The acclaimed neo-Western series starring Kevin Costner earned a prequel series titled 1883 in December 2021, and according to the streamer's most recent statement, there's more to discover about the Dutton family.

Despite no mention of a Season 2, Tanya Giles, ViacomCBS Streaming's chief programming officer, indicated that new episodes are on the way.

A new chapter of the boot-wearing family has been ordered with a new Taylor Sheridan-created prequel series titled 1932, in addition to the 1883 story that explores the lives of the Dutton's 19th-century forebears.

The Yellowstone universe's expansion does not end there! In February 2021, a spinoff series dubbed 6666 was planned, which will be "gritty" and "not glamorous," according to star Jefferson White (who plays Jimmy Hurdstrom).

The drama series introduced viewers to the Dutton family as they struggle with their enormous cattle ranch's issues.

Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, and Cole Hauser star in Yellowstone, which was released in June 2018. The show is completed by Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Gil Birmingham, Ian Bohen, and Ryan Bingham.

The prequel, which debuted in December 2021, detailed the story of how the Duttons came to hold the Yellowstone Ranch property.

Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Isabel May, LaMonica Garrett, and Marc Rissmann were among the cast members. Audie Rick, Eric Nelsen, James Landry Hébert, and Noah Le Gros also appeared.

Sheridan stated in February 2022 that the series would not get a second season. The following month, Paramount confirmed that there would be more episodes of 1883, but denied that it was a Season 2 renewal.


Since the network only recently revealed the 1932 news, there are few specifics about the planned spinoff series. The "next chapter" of the Yellowstone origin tale, per the ViacomCBS, "will follow a new generation of Duttons during the time of western expansion, Prohibition, and the Great Depression."

The release date for 1932, as well as whether or not the series would be exclusive to Paramount's streaming service, has yet to be disclosed.

The second spinoff, which will be available on Paramount+, will center on the Four Sixes Ranch in the present.

The official synopsis reads:

"Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is 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."
