Taylor Sheridan says, "I Will Tell My Stories My Way," and does anything he wants.

The most successful hitmaker in Hollywood and the recipient of THR's TV Producer of the Year award breaks his silence about the conclusion of "Yellowstone," Kevin Costner's departure, 

a possible spinoff starring Matthew McConaughey, his struggles with studio suits, and how he became a formidable mega-rancher right out of his own show: "Compromise is not an option."

"They're afraid," remarks Taylor Sheridan, grinning, as he leaves the group of publicists gathered inside his home and walks onto his porch. "They're afraid of my possible remarks."

for a valid cause. Not one to pull punches, the Yellowstone showrunner has become the most prolific writer in Hollywood in around ten years, going from an insignificant performer to the forefront of a dramatic media storm in recent years. 

The star of his flagship show, Kevin Costner, is leaving the network due to unidentified press finger-pointing. Two of his other projects, the Sylvester Stallone drama Tulsa King and the impending spy thriller Special Ops: Lioness, have seen showrunner changes,

with Sheridan taking creative control in both cases. A recent article that alleged the founder utilises his production resources to line his own coffers also focused on him. Several of the authors who are protesting in picket lines find his lone-wolf writing approach irritating.

There is a tonne of discussion about a hitmaker who invented a unique subgenre of neo-Western narrative and whose episodes are so well-liked that they are supporting an entire streaming business.

Now, "Yellowstone"'s last episodes are scheduled to premiere in November 2024.
