The John Dutton actor will also produce the series through his production company, Territory Films, along with Warm Springs Productions. Since the stunning national park was established in 1872 and the show is being made in honor of its 150 year anniversary, it seems that viewers can expect to see the documentary hit screens before the year is out.

The exciting news comes after Kevin recently announced that he will soon be stepping behind the camera for the first time in almost 20 years to bring to life his own Western drama. 

The 67-year-old's new film, titled Horizon, is set to be an epic period drama that will span 15 years before and after the Civil War expansion and settlement of the American West. Kevin will also star in the film, produce it and finance it through his production company.

The upcoming film will hopefully not clash with his Yellowstone filming schedule, possibly follow in the footsteps of his 1990 directorial debut, Dances with Wolves, and his most recent film, 2003's Open Range which were both huge hits with critics and audiences alike. 

As for Yellowstone, which Kevin has been a part of since it launched back in 2019, it's been confirmed that the series will return later this year for its fifth season, after becoming the most-watched show on cable television. A brand new spinoff series titled 1932 is also in the works, following the conclusion of prequel series 1883, which starred Faith Hill and Tim McGraw as John Dutton's ancestors.
