Yellowstone spoilers follow.

Quintessential American drama Yellowstone's latest season finale saw the end of an era for one of its key characters, but when one door closes, another soon opens.

The series – which stars the likes of Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes and Kelly Reilly – aired its season four finale in the US on Sunday evening (January 2), confirming the suspected exit of Jefferson White's cowboy Jimmy Hurdstrom.

Throughout its latest season, Yellowstone has been planting the seeds for upcoming spin-off 6666, with fans expecting Jimmy to ultimately move out to the iconic Texas ranch.

And that's essentially what happened, with Jimmy heading out to Texas, finding love, and getting engaged to a veterinarian named Emily.

Although viewers worried that Jimmy and Emily would have to call it quits in season four's penultimate episode – thanks to his ongoing commitments at the Yellowstone ranch – the season finale kicked things off with the ranch hand confirming they were still together.

After John Dutton gave Jimmy the go-ahead to leave Yellowstone and return to 6666 for a new chapter, Jimmy did exactly that. Why not, eh?

Yellowstone's latest episode sets the scene for series co-creator Taylor Sheridan's recently announced spin-off 6666, the second after prequel series 1883, which follows the origins of the leading Dutton family.

As per ComicBook.com, 6666 is the name of an existing ranch that Sheridan actually owns in real life. The spin-off is set to be filmed on location at the ranch, and will also serve as a base of operations for Sheridan.

Sheridan's other show, Mayor of Kingstown – which stars Marvel's Jeremy Renner – made history back in November, becoming the biggest premiere on Paramount+ since the service's rebrand.

Yellowstone airs on the Paramount Network in the US.
