The teaser begins with Margaret Dutton, played by Hill, speaking about the realities of the frontier, stating: ‘I heard a thousand stories, but none could describe this place.’

Shea Brennan, portrayed by Sam Elliott, is then shown during a moment of reflection while the singer’s character screams at an offscreen occurrence.

While a cowboy tends to a herd of livestock, Dutton is heard stating: ‘the road west is filled with failures…it was a dream, and this dream was coming true.’

The married couple and their eldest daughter Elsa, played by Isabel May, are then seen joining a sizable caravan of pioneers that later attends a somber burial.

As Brennan pistol-whips an unfortunate traveler, Dutton expresses that ‘we are in the land of no mercy now.’

Margaret is then seen attempting to cross a river with two other settlers and screaming in anguish after reaching the shore.

A battle between what appears to be Union and Confederate forces was shown, and a corpse-filled battlefield only served to heighten the tensions of the surviving soldiers.

Margaret’s husband James, played by McGraw, then defends his wagon from a group of attackers and fires a shot towards one of them.

The project was greenlit after the original series’ creator, Taylor Sheridan, signed a deal with ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group in order to work on several new shows.

The producer later released a statement regarding the agreement, and noted via Deadline that he was happy to be working on new shows related to the drama series.

‘I am excited to continue the story of Yellowstone and…to keep on expanding the family for the fans,’ he said.
