Where is Yellowstone filmed? Locations for the Kevin Costner Western series

Yellowstone where filmed

Posted by Ra Moon
Yellowstone is a modern-day TV western from Paramount Network (replacing the cable channel Spike). The ten-episode cowboy drama tells the story of a family led by their patriarch John Dutton, played by Kevin Costner. The Dutton clan will have to defend the largest ranch in United States, bordering Yellowstone National Park, from land developers, an Indian Reservation and the park itself.

This ambitious project was created by Taylor Sheridan, who started his career in acting (Sons of Anarchy) before writing acclaimed movies like Sicario or Hell or High Water. Kevin Costner is joined by an impressive cast, including Wes Bentley (American Beauty, Interstellar), Kelly Reilly (Britannia, Flight) and Luke Grimes (from Fifty Shades film series).

Yellowstone was filmed in Utah and Montana. We will be updating this spoiler-free report every week with new filming locations from the show, as the season goes on:
