Yellowstone is coming to an end in 2024, but creator Taylor Sheridan already has several new projects lined up, including Paramount+’s Landman.

The streaming service announced the upcoming series in February 2022, revealing in a press release that Billy Bob Thornton will play the lead character, a crisis manager for an oil company.

“We are in the privileged position to be able to work with people that we truly admire,” 101 Studios CEO David C. Glasser said in a statement at the time. “With Landman, Taylor developed it with Billy Bob in mind, and we were thrilled when he came on board. He is not only one of the greatest actors of our generation but also a true creative partner.”

Two years went by before fans were given any more details about Landman, which is being produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios.

The show, which is based on the hit “Boomtown” podcast, marks Sheridan’s ninth project under the Paramount umbrella. He cocreated Landman alongside Christian Wallace, and they’re both executive producers on the show as well. Sheridan is also working on an untitled Yellowstone sequel rumored to star Matthew McConaughey.
