Stan as acquired the family drama Yellowstone, starring two-time Oscar-winner Kevin Costner (pictured), which will make its Australian premiere this month – with Seasons 1 and 2 available to stream on Stan from Friday, 8 November.
Stan reports Yellowstone was the most-watched original cable TV series of the summer, with the second season debut drawing even more viewers than the first season premiere.
Yellowstone chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect, the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.
Written and created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water) and John Linson (Sons of Anarchy, Lords of Dogtown), the series features a standout supporting cast, including: Luke Grimes (True Blood, American Sniper), Kelly Reilly (True Detective, Flight), Cole Hauser (Rogue, Acts of Violence), BAFTA Award-nominee Wes Bentley (American Horror Story, Mission: Impossible–Fallout), Gil Birmingham (NCIS: Los Angeles, Animal Kingdom), Kelsey Asbille (Embeds, Teen Wolf) and Golden Globe nominee Danny Huston (Succession, Angel has Fallen).
Following the enormous success of the first two seasons, a third season has already been commissioned and is expected to premiere in Australia only on Stan next year – same day as the US.
Executive produced by John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser and Bob Yari, Yellowstone is co-produced by 101 Studios.
