“Yellowstone” co-creator Taylor Sheridan has heaps of new shows on his hands, many of which received major updates in late February into early March.

Sheridan has so many shows on his docket with the Paramount Network that they’re collectively being called the Sheridan-Universe. Each of his shows is unique and absolutely enormous in its own rights, but one has been particularly sheltered from sight: “6666.”

“6666” (pronounced Four Sixes) is the very-real ranch that Sheridan owns as part of his investment group. He purchased the 266,000-acre property in 2020 for $320,000,000, according to Southern Living. Fans of the show will also recognize the ranch from Jimmy’s storyline.

Rumors from another Southern Living article suggest that much of “Yellowstone” season six will take place at 6666, which will set the groundwork for another spin-off series of the same name. The spin-off will be produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, Ron Burkle and Bob Yari, and premiere at some point in 2023.

“Founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666,” the show’s synopsis noted, Southern Living noted. “Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing. The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made.”

Though still just rumors right now, Matthew McConaughey might lead the spin-off series.

Within the “Yellowstone” universe, more updates were also issued Wednesday for “Bass Reeves,” a prequel series that will tell the true story of America’s first black federal peace officer. Grantham Coleman will join Dennis Quaid, David Oyelowo and other cast members, according to Deadline.

All we really know about Coleman’s character is that he’s called Edwin Jones, “an extreme persuasive man who has a clear vision and a promise for the future, to those who will listen.” Sounds pretty ominous!

Finally, we have an update for “Tulsa King,” the non-“Yellowstone”-related show from Sheridan starring Sylvester Stallone. Co-star Martin Starr, who plays the crypto-hacking pot-dispensary legend “Bodhi,” will “for sure” be returning for the second season of the show, according to an interview with Comic Book.

It looks like Sheridan has another busy year ahead of him! And we’re super stoked.
