The show that kicked off the Taylor Sheridan empire—Yellowstone—may be ending this year, but that doesn't mean that the ever-busy creator is taking a break. Along with his ever-growing slate of Yellowstone prequels, sequels, and spinoffs, Sheridan's ongoing deal with Paramount+ has also spawned a number of standalone shows, including the second season of the Sylvester Stallone-starring Tulsa King, the Zoe Saldana-helmed spy thriller Lioness, and his new podcast-inspired show, Land Man.
Based off the podcast Boomtown, the West Texas-based show is set to center on "an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires that are fueling a boom so big it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics."
Here's everything we know so far about the show.
Billy Bob Thronton will star.
Back in early 2022, it was announced that Billy Bob Thornton was set to star in the series as Tommy Norris, a crisis manager for an oil company. Thornton has previously appeared in the Sheridan series 1883 as the real life gunslinger Jim Courtright.
For a long while, Thornton's casting remained the only information about the show, but now, additional casting news has been announced that will begin to suggest the shape of the show.
In addition to Thornton, Ali Larter, Michelle Randolph, and Jacob Lofland have all been added to the cast as members of the Norris family. Larter (Final Destination, Legally Blonde) will play Tommy's ex-wife Angela, while Randolph and Lofland will play the couple's children, Ainsley and Cooper. Described as Norris's "wild and strong-willed seventeen-year-old daughter," Ainsley will certainly be familiar to fans of the Sheridan-verse, as Randolph also starred as Elizabeth Dutton alongside Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford in the most recent Yellowstone prequel 1923. Lofland (Mud, the Maze Runner series) will play Cooper, "Tommy’s son, who is new to the demanding work in the oil and gas fields of west Texas," per Variety.
When does Land Man debut?
No official date has been set yet, but speculation has suggested that the show could go into production in 2023, though that timeline may be impacted by the ongoing Writer Guild of America strike.
