The Kevin Costner-led Western drew 3.9 million viewers in its first week back, according to Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day metric. The number includes audience for repeat airings on Paramount Network and sister network TV Land, as well as an additional simulcast on CMT.

‘Yellowstone’ Renewed For Season 3 By Paramount Network, Josh Holloway Joins Cast

If you are apart of the extra casting circles then you already would have known the third season was happening, but today Paramount made the official announcement that we will be seeing a third season next summer!

On the eve of Yellowstone’s second season premiere tonight, Paramount Network has ordered a 10-episode third season of its flagship drama starring Kevin Costner. Joining the show for a major recurring role in Season 3 is Lost and Colony alum Josh Holloway, Deadline can reveal exclusively..

Co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Oscar winner Costner), who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders – land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park.

In a season-long arc, Holloway will play Roarke Carter, a handsome, charming, shaggy-haired hedge fund manager with ambitious plans in Montana.

The first season of Yellowstone averaged 5.1 million total viewers per episode, making it 2018’s most-watched new cable series and ranking second across all cable TV series for the year. In addition to a ratings juggernaut, Yellowstone also has become a brand-defining series for Paramount Network, setting the creative direction for the newly launched network.

“We really want things to be cinematic with really great storytelling and have complex, nuanced, complicated characters where the setting is almost like a prime character of the whole piece,” Kent Alterman, President of Comedy Central, Paramount Network, and TV Land, told Deadline in May about the vision for Paramount Network. “The best example of that is Yellowstone. It’s very cinematic. It has a movie star in Kevin Costner. It’s got really deep, rich, complicated characters, the great interpersonal family relationships, and it can just keep exploring a lot of different stories with those characters.”

Yellowstone headlines Paramount Network’s scripted roster, which also includes the upcoming series Paradise Lost (working title) starring Josh Hartnett; 68 Whiskey, from Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment; and the new Darren Star dramedy Emily in Paris, headlined by Lily Collins.

Yellowstone is co-produced by 101 Studios. Executive producers are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser and Bob Yari.

Holloway executive produced and starred as Will Bowman on all three seasons of USA’s sci-fi drama Colony. Probably best known for his role as James ‘Sawyer’ Ford’ in hit ABC drama Lost, he also produced and starred in CBS’ action drama Intelligence. On the feature side, Holloway was seen in the action drama Sabotage, Paranoia and Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol. He is repped by UTA.

Cowboys & Indians: A Return To Yellowstone

Before Paramount Network’s hit series comes back for its sophomore season, we chat with stars Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, and Luke Grimes about how their characters help to fuel the western drama.

For the benefit of those who tuned in late: In the final Season 1 episode of Yellowstone, the epic Paramount Network series created and produced by Taylor Sheridan (Wind RiverHell or High Water), family ties were by turn frayed and reinforced, and groundwork was set for more conflict and tumult during Season 2.

John Dutton (Kevin Costner), the proud owner of Yellowstone, a massive Montana cattle ranch described as “the size of Rhode Island,” continues to defend and preserve his legacy even as his health fails and his enemies — including land developer Dan Jenkins (Danny Huston) and Native American businessman and activist Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham) — strengthen.

Typically, John demands absolute loyalty from his family and employees and warns of dire consequences for anyone he views as potentially treacherous or, worse, deliberately disobedient. Atypically, Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley), John’s lawyer son, defied his father and launched a campaign for state attorney general — thereby ensuring not only banishment from his father’s inner circle but a vicious visit from Beth (Kelly Reilly), his mood-swinging, aggressively unstable sister. She arrives at campaign headquarters just to cut up his credit cards and sever all other ties to the Dutton clan.

Throughout Season 1, Beth also had close encounters of a different kind with Yellowstone ranch foreman Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser), John’s longtime employee and frequent enforcer. Despite (or perhaps because of) his on-again, off-again sexual relationship with the manic Beth, Rip never wavers in his fealty to John. And he is very adept at keeping secrets: He knows where all the bodies are buried, quite possibly because he planted some of them — most of them? — himself.

In Season 2, it seems likely that body count might rise, with a little help from John’s other son, Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes), a former Navy SEAL who spent years bitterly estranged from John—but who, at the end of Season 1, returned to Yellowstone with Tate (Brecken Merrill), his own young son. By that point, viewers had already seen Kayce is slow to turn violent, but brutally efficient when inflicting mayhem. Will he spill blood again as a defender of Yellowstone?

Luke Grimes for ContentMode

Earlier this year Luke sat down with the folks of Contentmode to discuss all things Yellowstone – Taylor Sheridan’s writing, working with his TV family and more. Photographer Dylan Coulter took some absolutely beautiful photos of Luke for CM, Please take a look at his website as his work is just wonderful.

Did you and your on-screen family – Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, and Wes Bentley – do any special preparation to play the Duttons?

Preparation in acting can mean a lot of things. For example NOT meeting someone could be a form of it, Or spending three days in a tent with the guys playing your brothers could also. Taylor is aware of how to prepare his actors well.

As If Magazine Out Now!

The September 2018 issue of As If is now available on select newsstands! We’ll have those scans added to the gallery shortly. If you can’t find the magazine on your local newstands worry not, you can head over to AsIfMagazine.com and read the full article and interview.

 

You have worked alongside esteemed actors such as Julianne Moore, Bradley Cooper, Mary Steenburgen, Ellen Barkin, and Bruce Willis. What’s the most valuable piece of advice any of these veteran actors gave you?

That’s a good question. I think one of the most valuable lessons I learned from other actors was how they treated people on set. When you reach a certain level in your career, some people feel as though they can act however they want, without any regard of how it affects others and the mood of the whole project. I have learned that much of the creativity that comes out of a project is affected by how people in these top spots treat everyone. You mentioned Julianne Moore. She treated everyone with so much respect, was so beautiful to work with, and made everyone happy because her attitude was so great. Some of the other actors you mentioned were the same way. Bradley is also the nicest guy in the world. That is where I want my goal post to be.

Yellowstone Renewed for Season Two

The Dutton family saga rages onward. Following record-setting viewership, the new Paramount Network today announced a second season of its hit series “Yellowstone.” Production will begin shortly on the 10-episode season which will be shot entirely on location in Utah and Montana. The season one finale bows Wednesday, August 22 at 10 PM, ET/PT, with season two premiering next year.

The critically acclaimed drama stars world-renowned Oscar® and Emmy® Award-winning actor Kevin Costner along with Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Danny Huston and Gil Birmingham.

“Yellowstone” chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States.  Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.

Oscar® nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (“Wind River,” “Hell or High Water” and “Sicario”) returns as the showrunner and a writer for the series.

Executive producers for “Yellowstone” are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner and David C. Glasser. Ted Gold and Lauren Ruggiero are the executives in charge of production for Paramount Network.

Following a record-setting debut that attracted 5.3 million viewers, the series now ranks as cable’s most-watched series behind “The Walking Dead.” Season to date, the series is averaging 5 million viewers and registering a 1.4 rating with P 18-49, 2.0 P 25-54 and 1.9 W 24-54.   New episodes premiere Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT only on Paramount Network. Full look at the season here

The success of “Yellowstone” marks the six-month-old network’s third successful scripted launch in a row. Back in January, the limited-series “Waco,” which scored three Emmy® nominations, premiered to the best ratings for an ad-supported cable drama debut in nearly six months. In June, the network’s first scripted-comedy “American Woman,” bowed to the highest P/W18-49 and W25-54 ratings for an ad-supported cable scripted half-hour series premiere since early January.
