When Yellowstone first started airing on Paramount, it became an almost immediate success. With a big name like Kevin Costner attracting viewers, it was something else that turned them into fans. There are of course multiple reasons as to why that happened, but one of the show’s stars has his own opinion. 

On-screen Luke Grimes plays Kayce, one of the members of the Dutton family, spearheaded by Costner’s John Dutton. 

The family controls one of the largest cattle ranches in the country and are therefore constantly under different pressures by people who want to claim their land. 

Whether it’s the expanding town, the Indian reservation or greedy private developers, life is not easy for the Duttons. 

In the latest season, the threat came in the form of a new airport development, which threatened to take away a large portion of the land. 

However, it’s not the property feud that has fans come back to the Paramount show. 

Many stay for the drama, the romance, and the betrayal but according to Grimes, it’s something else that makes the show special. 

“I think a lot of the strength of the show is Taylor Sheridan’s writing, the world that he has created,” he said. 

The star then added: “I’ve been a big fan of his for a long time, and there’s just something that hits really close to home.”

“Even though a lot of his stuff can be macho or Western or whatever, I think it appeals to everyone because it’s very human.

“That’s why I was drawn to it. I just fell in love with the characters first.

“The world just happens to be the world that it’s in. I think a lot of people see a billboard for it, and they see cowboy hats and guns, and they think ‘Well, maybe that’s not for me.’

“But I think there really is something for everyone,” added Grimes, speaking to Monsters & Critics.

Viewers will hopefully agree with this assessment since there are two more Yellowstone shows on their way, both penned by Sheridan. 

Y: 1883 will be a prequel focusing on the origin of the Dutton family and how they first established their ranch. 

The show will be a true Western taking place in Montana during the Wild West era. 

And while fans will surely Costner, Grimes and all their co-stars, the prequel is sure to bring some exciting turn-of-the-century trials and tribulations for the Duttons. 

The second spin-off is titled 6666 and will instead focus on a ranch in Texas. 

It will also be a period show, bringing to screen more traditional cowboys than those of Yellowstone. 

The expanding Yellowstone universe is not all that Sheridan is focusing on at the moment. 

He is also in the process of writing The Mayor of Kingstown and Land Man, both expected to land on Paramount+.

Yellowstone season 2 is available to download now and on DVD and Blu-ray March 15 in the UK.
