‘Yellowstone’ Hit TV Show Set to Film a Scene in North Texas
The much anticipated Season 5 of "Yellowstone" on the Paramount network make its season debut last night with a 2-hour premiere.
Now it looks as though "Yellowstone" is coming to North Texas to begin filming a scene in the City of Venus, located near Dallas. The scene is expected to be filmed in the downtown square on Tuesday, November 15, and residents there have asked to avoid driving in that area. According to WFAA-TV, several roads will be blocked off for filming and the Venus Police Department will help in keeping folks out of that area as well as "Yellowstone" security personnel.
According to Mayor James Burgess, the scene being filmed will involve around 150 extras, a crowd, a stage, a podium, and a speech. A local Mexican restaurant has changed its name to look like a restaurant in Montana and some of the historic storefronts have been changed as well to resemble a town in Montana.
There's no word from producers if this scene is being filmed for the current season of "Yellowstone" or is maybe an added unexpected scene or a do-over for an episode this year. There is no official word that the show's main star Kevin Costner will be coming, but he's hopeful he does.
The historic downtown square was chosen from Paramount because it could pass as a town in Montana, said, Mayor Burgess.
The shows creator Taylor Sheridan is from North Texas and has filmed scenes at Four Sixes Ranch in West Texas. This is not the only filming in Venus, other movies like the 1967 Bonnie and Clyde movie and the new Texas Ranger CW TV show have been shot here. The population of Venus is almost 6,000 residents and resides less than 45 minutes southwest of Dallas in Johnson County.
