All hope shouldn’t be misplaced for followers of the Dutton household’s ranching drama, although. Together with the announcement of Yellowstone’s late 2024 finale, Paramount additionally revealed that whereas the flagship present might be coming to a detailed, two new Dutton-based spin offs are additionally within the works, at present working underneath the working titles 1944 and 2024.

Although extra particulars about these sequence haven’t been forthcoming as but, it appears possible that 2024 appears more likely to be the beforehand introduced spin off starring Matthew McConaughey. Each the title and former rumors in regards to the sequence counsel it is going to be contemporaneous to the tip of Yellowstone, with a Deadline report in Might 2023 stating that the McConaughey “is anticipated to be joined by handful of unique Yellowstone solid members,” within the sequence.

Much less is thought about 1944, although the potential for a spin off primarily based within the ’40s was first instructed as a chance again in October 2022. Contemplating the success of Sheridan’s different decades-based spin offs, 1883 and 1923, the latter of which can also be set to return for a second season at an as but unannounced date, the choice to proceed the story of the Dutton household historical past hardly comes as a shock.
