Paramount Network renews Yellowstone for season 3, adds Josh Holloway
Deadline has brought word that Paramount Network’s flagship drama Yellowstone has already been greenlit for a third season the morning that the second season is set to premiere and has added Colony alum Josh Holloway to the cast.
Holloway, who is also best-known for his role as James “Sawyer” Ford on the ABC mystery series Lost, has signed on to star as recurring character Roarke Carter, described as “a handsome, charming, shaggy-haired hedge fund manager with ambitious plans in Montana.”
The first season of the drama 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. (Buy the first season here.) Starring world-renowned actor and Oscar-winner Kevin Costner, Yellowstone is co-created by critically-acclaimed, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Wind River, Hell or High Water), and John Linson. The impressive cast list for Yellowstone also includes Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, and Gil Birmingham.
In Yellowstone, Costner stars as John Dutton, the patriarch of the family 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. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world’s largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.
The Paramount Network original drama is co-produced and co-financed by 101 Studios. Executive producers for Yellowstone are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, and David C. Glasser.
Season 2 of Yellowstone kicks off June 19th on the Paramount Network.
