We are nowhere near an endpoint at this time for Taylor Sheridan’s highly popular “Yellowstone” TV series on the Paramount Network, but it will come one day, and when it does Sheridan is seemingly prepared.
At a panel for the series at the Screen Actors Guild headquarters in Los Angeles yesterday (via Deadline, the show’s co-star Wes Bentley acknowledged that Sheridan already has a endgame plan in mind.
Bentley says: “He has said to me, he knows how he wants to end. That was a while ago. I’m sure he didn’t know how we were going to get there but he knows how.”
Whether Bentley’s character of Jamie Dutton will survive to that point, even the actor seems to think it won’t happen and says he already thinks his character is a dead man walking:
“I don’t think he’s playing a game here. He does want to see something left for his son. I think he has seen himself [dead] from before the beginning of the season. He’s already end-gamed what is happening to him. He knows what’s coming, and he’s trying to get what he can out of it by making some moves and taking opportunities.
Is he just holding onto power or is he actually trying to do something with the land? I think Jamie has valid questions about a lot of things, and that’s what’s complicated about him. He has a good argument. He doesn’t go about it the right way necessarily, or I guess in ways people hate, but it’s his way and it’s who he is.”
Bentley and his co-stars are scheduled to resume production on the fifth season later this month, and the group will film the episodes that will air this Summer.
