According to local CBS affiliate KPAX, the fourth season of âYellowstoneâ has moved to the Missoula Valley area of ââMT and was filmed there in its entirety. The outlet reported that this was the very first time in the series’ history that production was not split between Utah and Montana.
Season 4 was ultimately filmed during Montana’s “Fall Shoulder Season”, when unemployment is generally on the rise and the economy is down. âWith filming active during this time between summer and skiing, it will be a great boost to community activity,â said Matt Mellott of Sterling CRZE Advisors of Missoula, who helped negotiate the return. of production in August. âWith 150 people on site, this is a great opportunity for local restaurants, bars, breweries and hotels to capture more business,â Mellott said at the time, continuing: âMontana is ready to host productions. of this size and caliber. ”
One of the main reasons for the change, according to Deseret News, is the tax incentive programs for each state, as Utah has a limit on the amount of money TV shows receive to produce the show in the ‘Utah. On the flip side, Montana just increased the amount of money movies and television productions can receive from $ 10 million to $ 12 million, which makes this move even more justifiable for “Yellowstone” ( NBC Montana).
While the show will continue to be available on Paramount +, season 4 of âYellowstoneâ will officially end on January 2, 2022. The network has yet to announce a fifth season, but a renewal seems likely.
