However, overall figures for the final have already risen to a peak of 15 million viewers.
“Yellowstone continues to break records with more than 11 million viewers tuning in at the end of the season, proving that we have hit a cultural nerve – from the center of the country to each of the coasts – and we still have plenty of room for linear development.” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of ViacomCBS Media Networks at the time.
“Our strategy to turn Yellowstone into a franchise in a series universe to fuel Paramount +’s growth has already exceeded expectations, with 1883 and the Mayor of Kingstown being two of the best titles.”
