Paramount Community is betting huge on the modern western, having ordered a fourth season of the collection a full three months earlier than the newest batch of episodes started airing. However primarily based on the numbers the drama pulled in throughout its Season three premiere — a reported 6.5 million viewers — we’d say that was the fitting name.
In a 2019 interview, Jefferson talked about Jimmy’s drastic evolution on the present. “He’s introduced onto the ranch and thrown right into a world that’s completely overseas to him,” the Blindspot alum defined. “This, for Jimmy, is like type of a enjoyable and thrilling journey.”
Regardless of getting off to a rocky begin with ranch foreman Rip Wheeler, Jimmy quickly learns that the tough-talking cowboy has his again when he saves the greenhorn from getting his butt kicked by a fellow ranch hand.
“[Jimmy’s] used to preventing till he can’t stand up anymore, and he’s by no means had somebody are available in and save him like this earlier than,” Jefferson stated of Rip, who’s performed by Cole Hauser. “To have somebody decide you up and put you again in your ft is a extremely highly effective expertise.”
Cole added of the connection, “What Rip does, he actually form of takes [Jimmy] underneath his wing, identical as John Dutton did for him. And he begins exhibiting him the best way to be a cowboy, the best way to be a person.”
We positive hope Jimmy makes it out of this mess alive. New episodes of Yellowstone air Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Paramount Community.
