Yellowstone Fans Just Got Even More Amazing Spin-Off News

Yellowstone fans had reason to be excited in early February when news first broke that the fan-favorite Paramount series starring Kevin Costner as the powerful head of a Montana ranching family was getting a prequel spin-off entitled Y:1883, set to air on ViacomCBS' new subscription service Paramount+. Now, less than a month later, Paramount+ has announced that the franchise is expanding once more with the addition of a second spin-off series.

With a working title of 6666, the new show is set in West Texas and stars Yellowstone's Jefferson White and Ryan Bingham. The drama series finds the two reprising their roles as ranch hands Jimmy Hurdstrom and Walker, respectively, which likely means the duo will depart the flagship series in the upcoming fourth season, which we know filmed some scenes in Texas (via Cinemablend).

As for when exactly we can expect to see their departure is unclear, as there is no official word yet on when season 4 of Yellowstone will premiere on Paramount Network or when the new series will make its streaming debut.

What is the new Yellowstone spin-off 6666 about?

While the first Yellowstone spin-off is a prequel series that will shed light on the origin story of the power-hungry Dutton family as they forge Westward in search of land and fortune, the second spin-off is leaving the family behind entirely to focus on a different ranch in a different state. Here's the official pitch for the series, straight from Paramount+:

"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 ... The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made."

It's possible the show is based on or inspired by the real Four Sixes ranch in Guthrie, Texas, which republished an interview with Yellowstone creator and Texas native Taylor Sheridan from Cowboys & Indians magazine in December 2020. In the interview, Sheridan discussed the development of Yellowstone, as well as returning to his home state permanently. So, given that he's now firmly located in Texas — and the owner of two ranches — it's not terribly surprising that Sheridan would want to explore this part of the country as well, especially as it relates to a legendary ranch like Four Sixes.

Now we're all just waiting for the post-apocalyptic Yellowstone spinoff that takes place after the supervolcano erupts.
