Taylor Sheridan’s ‘6666’ Season 1: An Info Update On The New Season (November 2023)
2023/11/21

Yellowstone has played a significant role in the success of the Paramount Network, particularly with the Taylor Sheridan shows, such as the Yellowstone spinoff, which are also available on Paramount+. Two spinoff series, namely 1883 and 1923, have already released seasons, with 1923 being renewed for a second season. In addition to these, there are plans for two more spinoffs, 1944 and 2024. However, there is another series called 6666 that is generating a lot of interest.

It is possible that some of these spinoffs will be released before the final episodes of Yellowstone. The departure of Kevin Costner has had an impact on the production schedule. Here is what we know about 6666, which will be available for streaming on Paramount+ and possibly other platforms, like Comedy Central where 1923 has aired. 6666 takes its name from the real-life 6666 Ranch, which holds a special place in Taylor Sheridan's heart and mind. This ranch, which Sheridan now calls home, covers an area larger than two Chicagos. Some scenes for 1923 have already been filmed there, and there are plans to host cowboy-style camps near Guthrie, Texas, where the ranch is located.

The ranch, also known as the "Four Sixes," got its name when a herd of cattle was acquired during its initial launch. As a prolific writer, Sheridan is likely to write most of the scripts himself. The tone of the series is still unknown, but it is expected to have a similar soap opera-like feel as Yellowstone. The fictional cowboys in the show will be based on Sheridan's own ranching experience, and the ranch has already inspired the sale of Yellowstone-branded beef by Beth Dutton. In other words, 6666 is already a recognized brand, and the storyline possibilities are endless. Here's a synopsis of the show: The 6666 Ranch, established during the time when Comanches ruled West Texas, holds a rich history and is deeply intertwined with the West.

Still operating as it did two centuries ago, the ranch spans an entire county. This scripted series will delve into a world where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge, and the next thing one does could be the most dangerous. The 6666 is renowned for its pursuit of excellence in breeding the finest horses and livestock in the world, and it is where world-class cowboys are born and made. Taylor Sheridan has a knack for attracting A-list actors to his projects. His recent non-Yellowstone shows have featured Nicole Kidman, Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Renner, and David Oyelowo. For 1923, he brought in Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, and the show has been renewed for a second season. While it is unclear who will lead the cast of 6666, there are rumors that Matthew McConaughey will be the main star in 2024.

There is also speculation that Ryan Bingham and Jefferson White, who have appeared in Yellowstone, will have roles in the spinoff. There is currently no specific release date for 6666 as Taylor Sheridan and Paramount have not made an official announcement. However, with the resolution of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, production in Hollywood is expected to resume at full speed soon. Sheridan did mention in an interview with TV Guide that work on the series was paused over the summer due to the industry-wide disruptions. As the series is shrouded in secrecy, there is no trailer available yet. However, the clip from the Season 4 finale of Yellowstone featuring Jefferson White's character, Jimmy, might give viewers a glimpse of what to expect, as it hints at his journey to the 6666 Ranch.
