There are so many reasons to love Yellowstone Viewers can’t get enough of Paramount Network’s captivating drama, complicated romances, and all-star cast led by Hollywood heartthrob Kevin Costner (Maybe that’s why Ree Drummond is such a fan! 😉) If the ongoing conflict and incredible acting weren’t enough to tie people to the lasso, Yellowstone’s stunning setting would certainly do the trick.
Dutton Ranch’s distinctive landscape makes it the perfect backdrop for the intense western series – but does it really look like this in real life? Here’s what you need to know about the Yellowstone filming location
Many episodes of Yellowstone feature breathtaking views of the great outdoors and everything you see is 100% authentic According to The Salt Lake Tribune, 70-75% of the show’s first three seasons were shot in over 20 locations across Utah, including Park City, Ogden, and Spanish Fork
“I don’t think we ever get tired of seeing rivers, valleys and mountains flowing. If you can put some drama against it all, it’s fun,” Kevin told CBS This Morning.
The cast of Yellowstone also spends time in Montana to film on an actual ranch The magnificent Dutton family log cabin is actually a 5,000 square foot mansion located on the Chief Joseph Ranch near Darby, in the Montana – and it looks just as good as it looks on TV
“At the ranch, we shoot where it really takes place. It’s almost like the most central character,” Kevin said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “You go out and you see horses and men running around and the time dictates what you do “
When Yellowstone is not running on the 2,500 acre ranch, the owners rent out part of the property’s cabins to visitors. You can spend your time fishing, horseback riding and hiking through the beautiful mountains of the region (While fantasizing about Kevin’s coming, of course)
Season 4 is sure to feature plenty of new drama, but there will also be a change of scenery According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the upcoming season will be filmed almost exclusively in Montana Decision to stop production in Utah was largely financial, as the state’s “limited tax incentive program will not provide [on issuance] the same discounts” they previously received
With most of the filming now taking place in Montana, Yellowstone will be more authentic than ever. Yet there might be a few surprises
Fans of Yellowstone, Texas got the surprise of a lifetime when the cast and crew of the show showed up in their small town to shoot at a local cafe
Mary Anderson, owner of Mary’s Brazos Cafe in Parker County, North Texas, “couldn’t believe this was actually happening”
“The street across [the cafe] was lined up with my patrons watching and trying to see what was going on,” Mary told Outsider. “It was awesome”
When asked why he decided to film at Mary’s, Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan told local news it was “because that’s where we have breakfast when I’m here “
Of course, that begs the question: what were Taylor and the rest of the Yellowstone Texas team doing in the first place? We will have to wait for season 4 to find out!
World News – USA – “Yellowstone” has started filming in a new location and fans are so excited
