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 timeline expands even further with the new spin-of TV series Yellowstone 6666 on the way. There’s also the 1883 season 2 release date in the pipeline and Yellowstone 1923 is thriving with Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren leading their own drama series based on Taylor Sheridan’s world. Just to make things even more confusing, there’s also Yellowstone season 5 to think about, but we’re here to focus on Yellowstone 6666, so here we go.
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
As of March 2023, there is no specific Yellowstone 6666 release date, but we do expect it to land at some point this year.
Yellowstone 1923 is currently running, then the original Yellowstone show will return to conclude season 5. There isn’t even a confirmed release date for 1883 season 2 yet, but we predict that might fall in 2023 at some point too.
With such a busy schedule, it will be difficult to get Yellowstone 6666 produced and ready for consumption on the Paramount Plus streaming service any time soon. (It’s also been confirmed that the series will premiere on cable television, too.)
A late 2023 release date is possible, but don’t be surprised to see 6666 pushed into an early 2024 premiere slot.
Yellowstone 6666 plot speculation
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 a good old western movie of 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 (said four-sixes); legend has it Samuel Burnett won the ranch in a card game with four sixes. But, the Burnett family insist 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.
Yellowstone 6666 cast speculation
While no one has officially been added to the Yellowstone 6666 cast, we assume it is 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 never came back.
If Jimmy is there, then it’s also likely his girlfriend Emily (Kathryn Kelly) will be hanging around, too. The pair are set to return to the main Yellowstone series, so perhaps that will be the perfect opportunity to set up this new venture.
That’s all we know about the Yellowstone 6666 release date for now. If you want more great spin-off series dive into all we know about the Yellowstone 1923 season 2 release date and the 1883 Bass Reeves story release date or why not learn all about the Yellowstone cast.
