Expressing his true views towards the show, he said, “I’m not a Yellowstone fan.”

“I don’t watch Yellowstone… I love Costner. There’s a lot of good people on the cast, a few of them I’ve worked with before—nothing against any of them—but it’s just too much like fucking Dallas or something for me.” His Dallas comment refers to a popular 80’s soap opera that ran for as long as a decade continuing for 14 seasons. However, this is not the first instance where the show was compared with Dallas. Many people have drawn parallels for their identical portrayals of mystery and violence.

The series ideally serves as a prequel to Yellowstone, containing easter eggs for the show. However, the show enunciates its story as a standalone perfectly well. Recent developments about the Elliott starrer inform nothing about its renewal for a second season yet.
