    Interesting interview with the head of the Paramount Network regarding the future of YELLOWSTONE.

    https://popculture.com/tv-shows/2019...ow-might-last/

    "What I love about it is, it has a very consistent, authentic voice; Taylor has written every episode, which is very rare," Cox told the outlet, after admitting he was "pleasantly shocked" by the growth and revealing Sheridan had always assured him the show would "blow up in Season 2."

    As for how much longer the show can go on? Cox said that Sheridan has an ending in mind for the Dutton family's journey.

    "There is a life span; Taylor has an ending, he knows how he wants to wrap the series with a satisfying ending for the family over many seasons." Cox told the publication. He also revealed that he has already discussed how a potential Season 4 would end, with the whole series likely wrapping up after Season 6 or 7 at least.
    I was hoping it would only go 3 maybe 4 seasons. I hate shows that drag on and on. Then again if they can keep up the quality I will definitely stick around. I'm glad it's been such a ratings darling and a critical success!

    If they are only going for 8-10 episode seasons, 7 isn’t too much at all. I trust that there’s a guiding vision to keep it on pace the whole way.

    That's true. I do wish the seasons were longer but I guess it works out the same either way. I'm already jonesing for more!

    They need to be careful though, and not get GAME OF THRONES syndrome where the later seasons felt rushed and the writing also fell off (I personally still liked the last season but it was definitely rushed). This particular show doesn't feel like a 7 season type to me but I'd love to be proved wrong. Feels like dragging storylines out to the hilt.

    Game of Thrones had that problem due to starting as an adaptation of a series of books, but getting to the end of what the author had written years before the books wrapped up. I don’t think we’ll see that kind of shift on Yellowstone if it’s all being written by one great screenwriter, which it is.

    Also, we have no idea what’s coming in the future. For all we know, the first two seasons may just have been the prologue to bigger things, and honestly, the end of season two definitely felt that way.

    That's what I like so much about YELLOWSTONE, the consistency and the vision of one creator. I honestly don't watch much TV, especially what's consider hot. I feel like I'm the only person who never watched GAME OF THRONES. I didn't watch DEADWOOD until a couple months before the movie came out.

    One thing YELLOWSTONE does that grabs me that other shows don't have is the cinematography and the music. I think that's what makes it feel so cinematic to me. It all feels very fresh. LONGMIRE had similar beautiful locations set in Wyoming but it wasn't shot as lovingly. DEADWOOD as great as it was always looked a bit cheap to me. It felt like a tv show. There was rarely a long shot or a wide establishing shot. I can't recall one note of the music. Same with TRUE DETECTIVE. WESTWORLD looks and sounds great but I just can't get into the second season at all. It feels a bit too random and convoluted after season one. I have short patience these days. I can watch an endless amount of Jess Franco flicks but for some reason TV tends to lose me fast because it becomes all about the plot and if the plot isn't focused then there's no reason to stick around. I think the better shows, IMO, like Deadwood, Longmire, Taboo, Yellowstone, True Detective, keep me entertained more because of the characters rather than the plot. I've read far too many comic books to be entertained anymore by endless mcguffins and metaphysical plots that don't resolve themselves. These days I just want strong characterization and straightforward adventure. I want to be touched and I want to be thrilled. Taylor Sheridan seems to understand what an audience wants. I hope the Paramount Network continues to let him do his thing without getting in the way.

    Several recurring characters from the first two seasons have been bumped up to series regulars for the third season. "Gil Birmingham (who plays Chief Thomas Rainwater), Denim Richards (who plays ranch hand Colby) and Forrie J. Smith (who plays ranch hand Lloyd Pierce) have also been promoted to series regulars for Season 3." I really love Gil Birmingham and hope with season three his role is much bigger.

    And a bunch of new faces have been added to the cast: "Edin Brolin (Josh Brolin's daughter), Josh Holloway, John Emmet Tracy, Q'orianka Kilcher, Jennifer Landon and Karen Pittman." I have no idea who any of these people are.

    Kilcher is the cousin of Jewel, the singer who was big in the mid-90s and was Pocahontas in The New World and the housekeeper in the first season of The Alienist. She’s a decent enough actress, nothing super amazing. That’s the only one I recognize.
