Yellowstone universe is expanding at a quick pace

The Paramount Network has decided to expand the Yellowstone Universe and that too at a quick pace. The network is keen to capitalize on the success of the series while it is popular. We all know Yellowstone is a hugely popular show in the United States with millions of fans. The plan is to increase the subscriber base for Paramount+ and compete with streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu.

Paramount Network is introducing two of Taylor Sheridan’s new series and connecting them to Yellowstone season 5.

“We want to double down on that momentum and not waste it,” Chris McCarthy, chief executive of ViacomCBS Media Networks and MTV Entertainment studios said.

However, McCarthy was fast to note that expanding the successful franchise wouldn’t come at the expense of the property’s narrative quality, saying, “We don’t want to damage the franchise.”

Yellowstone Part 1 will introduce a new spin-off, a gangster drama, The Tulsa King starring Sylvester Stallone. It is not part of the Yellowstone universe, but it is part of the Sheridan-verse.

As per The AV Club, Stallone will be playing Dwight Manfredi, a New York gangster looking to stake his own claim to Tulsa’s criminal underworld after a 25-year prison stint and being “unceremoniously exiled by his boss.”

Just like 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown, the first two episodes of The Tulsa King will air after Yellowstone on the Paramount Network. Then, the series will move exclusively to Paramount+.

Yellowstone Season 5 Part 2 to introduce a new prequel ‘1932’

Recently, while renewing 1883 for more episodes, Paramount announces another Yellowstone prequel ‘1932′. The series will follow a new generation of Duttons “during the time of western expansion, Prohibition and the Great Depression.”
