Yellowstone is a show that knows exactly what it is and isn’t afraid to lean into that. It’s a show that’s unafraid of tackling big issues and has a strong cast of characters that viewers can’t help but root for.
It’s no wonder that the show has been so successful. Here’s hoping that Season 5 can continue to deliver the same high quality of entertainment as previous seasons.
What’s Behind the Success?
So what’s behind the success of Yellowstone? For one, it’s a show that’s unapologetically American, which is something that seems to be resonating with viewers in recent years. In an age where many shows and movies are trying to be as diverse and inclusive as possible, there’s something to be said for a show that knows exactly what it is and isn’t afraid to lean into that.
Secondly, it’s a show that’s unafraid of tackling big issues. From environmentalism to racism to class warfare, Yellowstone isn’t afraid to take on some pretty heavy topics. And while it doesn’t always do so in the most subtle way possible, it does manage to strike a balance between being entertaining and thought-provoking.
Finally, it has a strong cast of characters that viewers can’t help but root for (or against, in some cases). Whether you’re Team John Dutton or Team Jamie Dutton, there’s no denying that the characters on this show are compelling and complex. And that’s something that keeps viewers coming back week after week.
