What The Latest Yellowstone Season 5 News Could Mean For The 6666 Spinoff

"Yellowstone" is one of the most popular shows on TV right now, with its record-breaking Season 4 premiere (and finale) and successful new prequel, "1883." The Western drama bridges family dysfunction, political strife, and business complications as it follows the notorious Dutton family and their contagious cattle ranch in Montana.

The series was recently renewed for a fifth season and announced a third spin-off series, "1932," which will continue to chronicle the Dutton's rise to prominence within the industry. The Season 5 news also revealed details about the upcoming spin-off "6666," which fans have speculated will follow convict-turned-cowboy Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White), who was exiled to the 6666 Ranch after disobeying John Dutton (Kevin Costner). While adjusting to his jaw-dropping new job, Jimmy fell in love, got engaged, and is seemingly set to move his life to Texas.

However, the casting announcement of "Yellowstone" Season 5 appears to suggest otherwise.

Jefferson White and Kathryn Kelly will be series regulars in Season 5

In addition to Jen Landon being upgraded from a guest star to a series regular, newcomer Kathryn Kelly is also set to be a series regular in Season 5 of "Yellowstone." Kelly plays Emily, a veterinarian at the 6666 Ranch, and is Jimmy's new fiancé. Jefferson White will also be returning as a series regular, and this news contradicts many fan theories about the couple leading "6666" (via Deadline).

Details about what Season 5 will entail are still unknown, and it could continue to jump between the Dutton's ranch and the 6666 Ranch the way it did throughout Season 4. However, some fans were not thrilled about the constant crossovers, and this news implies that Jimmy and Emily will serve as the connections between the two shows.

It's also possible that they move back to Montana as Jimmy is a branded member of the Yellowstone Ranch. This likely means more confrontations between Emily and Jimmy's ex-girlfriend, Mia (Eden Brolin).

Fans will have to sit back and wait for more news as the franchise continues to grow.
