Season 2 of Paramount’s Yellowstone is well underway and there’s even better news is on the horizon. The Western drama starring Academy Award winner Kevin Costner has been picked up for a third season and a popular TV veteran is getting ready to saddle up.
According to Deadline, Lost and Colony alum Josh Holloway will be joining the cast for the forthcoming third season. He joins the already set cast including Fifty Shades of Grey’s Luke Grimes, True Detective’s Kelly Reilly, American Horror Story’s Wes Bentley, Rouge’s Cole Hauser, and Teen Wolf’s Kelsey Asbille. The site reports that “Holloway will play Roarke Carter, a handsome, charming, shaggy-haired hedge fund manager with ambitious plans in Montana.
Yellowstone found it’s debut season at the top of cable’s list after solidifying itself as the most-watched cable series of the Summer in 2018. After the first season finale, Paramount Network released a press release announcing the season’s dominating numbers, declaring it the “most watched show on cable this summer and most watched new scripted drama on ad-supported cable since 2016.” They ended the season on a high note with the season one finale becoming “the most watched episode in ad-supported cable since April.” Paramount had already renewed the drama for a second season back in July.
Created by Sons of Anarchy alum and Sicario director Taylor Sheridan, Yellowstone follows the Duttons, a ranching who own the largest cattle ranch in the United States and are constantly facing off against others (and each other) trying to encroach on their land. Season 2 is currently airing on Paramount Network.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
