    In what can only be described as a sensation, the 'Yellowstone' universe, the brainchild of Taylor Sheridan, spread its wings even further with an exclusive two-part aftershow special on Paramount+, as reported by Deadline.

    "Expanding the Universe"

    The aftershow, aptly named 'ET Presents: Yellowstone Aftershow', was hosted by Entertainment Tonight's Cassie DiLaura, with the first part unveiled on December 19th and the follow-up on December 26th. This exceptional presentation acted as the latest symbol of synergy between Viacom and CBS, each responsible for producing 'Yellowstone' and 'ET' respectively.

    Promising and delivering a fan-fueled experience, the aftershow special showcased interviews with 'Yellowstone' cast members, including the iconic Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes, and Jefferson White. Beyond that, it offered fans an enticing glimpse into the final two episodes of the fourth season, as well as behind-the-scenes revelations through conversations with Sheridan himself and executive producer David Glasser.

    "We're Breaking Records"

    The fourth season of 'Yellowstone', aired on Paramount Network, raked in a staggering 14+ million viewers in the U.S. during its premiere, positioning it as the most-watched cable season premiere since 2017. Its finale, aired on January 2nd, was highly anticipated given the record-breaking run of the season.

    What's more, the aftershow special gave 'Yellowstone' a unique footprint on Paramount+, despite the fact that the streaming platform doesn't carry the hit cable series due to its pact with Peacock.

    Paramount+ has been the launchpad for the expansion of the Sheridan universe, with the debut of '1883' – a Yellowstone origin story – and the original series, 'Mayor of Kingstown'. The network aired special simulcast events of both Paramount+ series following 'Yellowstone' on their respective premiere dates.

    Behind the Scenes with Taylor Sheridan

    Peeking behind the curtain, the aftershow allowed fans to better understand the riveting dynamics of the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, portrayed by Costner, who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the U.S. Amid the ongoing drama of shifting alliances, unsolved murders, and open wounds, the Duttons' ranch remains in perpetual conflict with its expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.

    Looking back, the aftershow special marked a significant moment in Taylor Sheridan's journey with 'Yellowstone', revealing a side of the captivating universe that fans had only dreamed of exploring.
