Taylor Sheridan is responsible for bringing back the neo-western genre to the little screen. After teaming up with Kevin Costner to produce Yellowstone and its spin-offs —1883 and 1923— he’s not stopping in the expansion of the Dutton universe, and now he brings us 6666. Sheridan’s unique style of storytelling creates a solid character structure and story arcs that weave together a product unseen in a few years. And that’s the key to his success. So, let’s talk about the 6666 release date and everything there’s to know about it.
6666 is based upon a real ranch, the Four-Sixes ranch in Texas. Unlike the fictional Yellowstone ranch, 6666 does have a real backdrop story. This production will have characters from the original Yellowstone franchise starring there, and it promises to be a greater expansion to the successful Dutton universe that Taylor Sheridan plans to expand for the next few years. Now, without further ado, let’s begin covering this topic.
Is 6666 A Real Ranch?
Yes, 6666 is a ranch located in King County, Texas. The 6666 Ranch, also known as the Four Sixes Ranch, is a historic cattle ranch in the Texas Panhandle. The ranch was founded in 1867 by Ferdinand von Roemer and today covers more than 400,000 acres. The 6666 Ranch is home to a herd of over 50,000 Longhorn cattle and also features a working ranch and guest ranch. The 6666 Ranch has been featured in numerous books and films and is one of the most famous ranches in the United States. And it’s the perfect backdrop for one of the kinds of stories and characters that Taylor Sheridan developed. Particularly in the ranch personnel that worked in the Yellowstone ranch like Jimmy, Teeter, or Walker. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because we have some news on that!
6666 Will Feature Characters From Yellowstone
Yellowstone owner John Dutton sent Jimmy to the 6666 (pronounced “four sixes”) ranch in Texas early in season 4, telling him, “This isn’t a punishment, Jimmy, it’s an opportunity if you let it be.” The news came while Jimmy was still recovering from a devastating riding injury sustained in the season 3 finale. Still, Jimmy reluctantly agreed with Dutton, leaving behind his girlfriend Mia to travel to Texas.
The character spent the majority of season four at the 6666, making brief appearances throughout the season and subtly introducing the new location and a few new characters, most notably Emily, a new love interest who he later revealed is now his fiancée. There have been no further details about 6666’s timing or casting as of yet. Still, given that Jimmy and Emily ended the season driving back to the 6666 after a brief return to Yellowstone for some heart-to-hearts and goodbyes, many fans are now anticipating that the characters will make regular appearances on the spinoff whenever it airs.
What Will 6666 Be About?
The show will reportedly examine the legendary property’s history, per a Paramount+ press release. “No ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666, which was established when Comanches still ruled over West Texas. The 6666, which still runs exactly as it did two centuries ago and spans an entire county, served as the basis for a new scripted series where the laws of nature and the rule of law collide in a setting where the next action is always the most dangerous. The 6666 is synonymous with the ruthless quest to produce the world’s best horses and livestock and is ultimately the place where world-class cowboys are created.”
6666 Release Date
The Yellowstone spinoff 6666 will probably release in November 2022. Around the same time that the fifth season of Yellowstone is dropping in Paramount+, slated for release on November 13, 2022. Though we don’t have a concrete date, we can assume that maybe these series will run as companions. As Paramount decided to put them together in the same streaming platform. We’ll keep an eye out for further updates and let you know. For the moment, that’s all the time we have now regarding Yellowstone, 6666, and everything related to Taylor Sheridan here at Otakukart.
