In May 2024, filming for the second installment of “Yellowstone,” a Western series on the Paramount Network, is scheduled to start in Park City, Utah, and Darby, Montana. The fifth round of the long-running show’s second-part episodes will mark its conclusion.
November 13, 2022 marked the debut of the fifth season of the show. As the first section comes to a finish, John Dutton III could be impeached. Because her brother Jamie Dutton turned against John, Beth Dutton is at war with him. Rip Wheeler, Beth’s husband, and some cowboys transport John’s livestock to Texas while they attend to a sickness that is killing the ranch’s animals. When Rip is not around, Kayce Dutton chooses to assist his father in managing the ranch.
John’s political career may be the subject of the second installment. Apart from avoiding impeachment, John must ensure he does not forfeit the land inherited from his forefathers. After Beth threatened him, Jamie would think twice about fighting his adoptive father. It’s possible that Kayce and his spouse Monica will still be mourning the death of their second child. His choice to relocate to East Camp might give the pair the much-needed diversion they need.
It’s still unclear if Kevin Costner will appear in the second half of the season. In order to concentrate on the creation of “Horizon: An American Saga,” his passion project, the actor made the decision to depart from the Western series. The series’ co-creator, Taylor Sheridan, intends to make a few little changes to the way John’s story arc ends. “I’m not happy. It breaks up his character’s resolution. Regarding Costner’s choice, Sheridan told The Hollywood Reporter, “It truncates it, but it doesn’t alter it.” He did, however, add that he plans to wrap up the series the way he had initially imagined.
We can anticipate seeing Luke Grimes (Kayce), Kelly Reilly (Beth), Wes Bentley (Jamie), Cole Hauser (Rip), Kelsey Asbille (Monica), Gil Birmingham (Thomas Rainwater), Brecken Merrill (Tate), and other returning cast members throughout the remainder of the season.
Though the initial plan called for six episodes to make up the second half of the season, fans can anticipate more. They’ll offer me ten episodes if I believe it will take that many to finish. “It will last for the necessary amount of time,” Sheridan stated in the THR interview. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes created delays, thus Paramount Network may have to reschedule the premiere date of the ninth episode of the series, which was originally slated to air in November 2024.
Park City and Darby were important filming locations during the show’s earlier seasons. In the Western play, Darby’s Chief Joseph Ranch serves as a stand-in for the famous Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. The town’s Richard Cromwell Memorial Rodeo Grounds served as the filming location for the first several episodes of the fifth round. The show was formerly produced at Utah Film Studios in Park City, along with other well-known endeavours like Sheridan’s “Wind River” and Ari Aster’s “Hereditary.”
