“Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan’s next two series, “Land Man” and “Lioness,” announced major updates Monday.

The first update is that “Lioness,” starring Nicole Kidman, Morgan Freeman, Zoe Saldana, and a slew of other A-listers and familiar faces from the Sheridan universe will wrap up filming on its first season in early February, according to Deadline. This update was quickly followed by news that “Land Man,” starring Billy Bob Thornton, will begin production as early as May.

“Land Man” reportedly follows Thornton’s character, a crisis manager for an oil company, and pulls its storyline from the podcast “Boomtown,” according to Collider. Little has been said of the overall plot, but early reports suggest it will show “just how the oil boom has shaped our current world through climate, economy, and geopolitics – for better or for worse.”

Could we be in for a full year of Sheridan shows? Thus far, we have “Tulsa King,” “Lioness,” “Land Man,” “Mayor of Kingstown,” and probably one or two I’m forgetting, which are all said to be streaming on Paramount+.

Then we have “Yellowstone” season five and the rest of the prequel series “1923,” which will likely be followed by “Bass Reeves” and “6666.” There are also rumors of prequel series set in the 1940s and 1960s, as well as a whole new show based around the Yellowstone legacy, which is said to be starring Matthew McConaughey.
