Yellowstone Prequel Series Considers Montana Town For Filming
Do you still have room on your plate for more Yellowstone content? The series has been a huge hit since we all started following the saga of the Dutton family and we've certainly spent our fair share of time talking about the show with all of the local filming that they've been doing. I was an extra for a day of filming last season and it was pretty cool to see how everything happens behind the scenes. Even this week, we had a story about a rodeo in Darby that's inspired by Yellowstone. Yep, it's a Yellowstone kind of world right now and Montana might get even more involved with the show.
Another Yellowstone series to watch
We're now up to three spinoff shows! Tim McGraw and Faith Hill led the cast of the recently aired 1883 prequel series. Another show, 6666 is set to feature Jimmy, Yellowstone's favorite bumbling cowboy wannabe. And in more prequel news, it was announced last week that Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren will star in the series titled 1932. And it looks like 1932 might join Yellowstone and shoot the show in Montana!
Reports this week say that Butte is being considered as the main location for filming
A story from KPAX says the production company with Yellowstone is in negotiations to rent the Butte Civic Center and use it for the production of the new series. In the article, the manager of the Civic Center gives some reasoning behind the show's interest in filming in the city.
Butte was one of the happening places west of the Mississippi in 1932, so they’d really like to have the authenticity of the architecture here and be able to film here in Butte.
If a deal is reached it would mean hundreds of people working on the show and that's good news for Butte's economy. As of now, there's no deal just mutual interest. We should find out soon if the Yellowstone brand will set up shop for more filming in Montana.
