The trailer for the latest season of the television drama “Yellowstone” starring Kevin Costner debuted this week.
The trailer’s release appears to be very speedy, since filming for the series was going on just one month ago in Montana, as producers were looking for extras. However, there was no date given in the trailer as to when the new season will premiere.
“Yellowstone” was created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, both of whom have long histories in the modern western genre, such as “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water” for Sheridan, and “Sons of Anarchy” for Linson.
A “Yellowstone” prequel is also slated to premiere on Paramount+ sometime this year, although no date has been set for its premiere.
“Y: 1883” will follow the Dutton family as it journeys west through the Great Plains “toward the last bastion of untamed America,” according to a series description provided by Deadline.
“It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana,” the description said.
No further information has been provided about the new series since the teaser dropped back in February.
The current “Yellowstone” series follows the Dutton family, led by Costner’s John Dutton, as it runs the largest contiguous ranch in the United States and its dealings with bordering Native Indian reservations and national parks.
