The Peak | Yellowstone Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere | Paramount Network

– This is a 5th generation family so you wanna preserve the legacy of the land. So, it’s pretty obvious what he wants. He wants things to continue the way they always have. (upbeat music) – You know, now that we’ve kind of found out who all these characters are, now we can really go a little deeper with them and all the relationships and all these different people’s lives sort of being up against each other.

Season two’s just next level compared to season one. – In season one we establish this world, we establish these characters, and I think season two we just get to take them to a different level. Beth, we get to sort of understand a little bit more of her heart and I think there’s a little bit more vulnerability in there. Plus, her fierceness just goes to another level. – The great thing about season two is it’s a little more interior, meaning, it’s not so much about the killings, the BLM, and the water rights and the land and all that stuff, even though that’s still in there, but it also dives really hard into us as characters and who we are. – The unfolding of the storyline really gets into more character depth, especially for the Duttons and then of course, for my character, Thomas Rainwater, it just raises the stakes considerably. – The stakes are much higher and you just care for these characters. You know, the way Taylor’s written them in their complicity is that, you want to make sure that they’re okay and in this world, it’s debatable. – I think it’s a show that in an incredible way has very few one dimensional or two dimensional characters. In season two makes all those characters, whether you hated them in the first season or loved them, so much richer.

It gives you reasons to hate characters that you loved in the first season and it gives you reasons to love characters that you hated in the first season. It’s really incredible writing. (pounding music) (screams) (fire whooshes outward) – We have a lot of momentum, a lot of speed in this season. Not too fast to keep up with, but just energy I think is what I’m trying to say. And I think fans are going to enjoy that. – The show’s going fast and you can see that it’s headed toward some walls where there’s some collisions.

So, it plays those out and then there’s the aftermath of what comes from those. So, we have to deal with situations of our own doing and then the creation of new ideas. – It is insane. So, everything that you see is going to be super intense. Taylor found a way to make the stakes higher, the make the characters want more and do more to get the things that they want. – There’s more passion. There’s more heart.

The things that people want and what they’re willing to do to get them, which leads to greater violence, greater betrayal. (punching and kicking smacking) – I’ve never seen a fight like that in my life on film. I’ve seen them in person, but not on film. – There’s a lot more action. I don’t know, I guess it’s all pretty violent, but this kind of season, this feels like there’s just a lot going on. It’s really wild, but things are starting to really blow up. – It’s like a pressure cooker, I think, and I think that halfway through the season we kind of see how everything blows up.

Get ready for a lot suspense, a lot of pressure, a lot of payback. It’s going to be intense. – There’s a war happening there. Enemies are coming from every angle and we’re all trying to fight to survive, including Beth. When you asked me to fight for this family, you said, “Fight everyone.” (glass breaks) – I have people coming to me on the street and they honestly get really mad at me for leaving Kayce, but you know, he’s killed someone every episode, so you gotta give me a break. – She’s sort of said that she can’t take it anymore and whatever he has going on with him has put them in danger too much and it’s obviously devastating. It’s the last thing on earth that he wanted to happen. – She’s really finding her independence and what it looks like to be a single mom and kind of carve out her own life away from the Dutton influence. – The only thing he can do now is try to make a future for his son.

Every choice he’s making is for his son and to hopefully one day get that family back. – Knowing that my dad at the end is gonna protect the ranch for me is, I feel good about that. (bang) – [Black-haired man] And there’s a war coming. – You bet your ass it’s coming. – We have some new characters, new developments. I don’t think it was anything we expected, and we already had the dynamics of the land developers, the casino, and then the ranch. – They’re shrewd. They have a history that’ll unfold, but they’re formidable, and they’re just one of four pegs of people that really go at each other. (door slams open) – Jamie and Beth are never going to see eye to eye, I don’t think. I mean, there is such a deep, I would say hatred, I mean, I think she hates him. – It’s an intense love that leads to intense hate and resentment.

We don’t know where it’s coming from. It’s going to be a great moment when we find out what it really is that set this off. – There’s a backstory there that we’ve yet to uncover. The reason why it’s such a deep betrayal somewhere, is that there was once huge love. – It’s great to work with her doing this because we’re good friends. You need to be able to trust one another to really go that deep into that kind of, that kind of hate and violence. – I love them. The two of them together are amazing.

I think that their dynamic is so exciting to watch. Beth. She’s tough.

And I feel bad for Jamie, like all the time. – I think Wes Bentley does an incredible job playing Jamie. That’s a really hard part to play. To sort of play someone kind of so awful but you feel for them. – Continuing representation for the Native culture and the character that is so rarely portrayed this way in a contemporary sense so that it can also be educational, I mean, that’s my own bias about it.

To sort of play someone kind of so awful but you feel for them. – Continuing representation for the Native culture and the character that is so rarely portrayed this way in a contemporary sense so that it can also be educational, I mean, that’s my own bias about it.

And why it’s so immersive is because everybody has a story of some dysfunction in family and that’s really what the relationships in Yellowstone kind of are. – I’m actually very interested in the Native American storylines, what goes on the reservation. And Thomas Rainwater, I think, is a very intriguing character. I could watch a whole show about him and just find it fascinating. There definitely needs to be a show like that. – The bunkhouse boys are a good bridge between the best of Yellowstone and the worst of Yellowstone, in terms of the characters and again, what they’ll do, and their biggest hearts and then their biggest vices. – I always joke, I say that we’re like the comedic relief, I think, in a show that’s like super intense.

We’re just kind of like the guys that just wanna have fun. Don’t take it too seriously, feel like John Dutton’s got it under control. But little did we know, not necessarily true. – [Kayce Dutton] What are we gonna do? – We’re gonna kill ’em, son. – I can’t wait for audience to see it, because I know how much the audience loves it.

They’ve been waiting for it. – Where is it? Everything I hear from the fans is, “I want more. We want more.” And that’s exactly what you want to hear. – Everything that fans respond to in the first season, the second season pushes those sort of themes so much further. – I was so excited for it to come back. I feel like all of us on the show are just as big of fans as the people who watch it and we are watching the story unfold too. – It’s worth the wait. This is a great season, and everyone put everything into it.

We all needed our recovery time after this one and you’ll see it. And I think the fans will be excited for that. – On June 19th I’m going to be watching the premier of season two of Yellowstone, only on the Paramount network. – What I’ll be doing? I’ll be watching Yellowstone, yeah. You’re damn straight, girl. – I’m going to be sitting in front of my TV watching me. (laughs) – I’d like to make sure I get to sit and watch it with people I love, celebrating it. – So excited.

June 19th. Watch it!
