Is “Mayor of Kingstown” connected to “Yellowstone”? “MoK” star and series co-creator reveals the truth

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: “Mayor of Kingstown” and “Yellowstone” are created by Taylor Sheridan, and it’s no surprise that fans often ask if there is an official connection between the two shows.

Both shows embody Sheridan’s signature style, known for gritty realism, complex characters, and exploration of themes of family and power dynamics.

However, Jeremy Renner’s crime drama, “Mayor of Kingstown,” distinguishes itself with a different style and tone compared to “Yellowstone.”

Both shows contributed significantly to the success of Paramount+. Let’s discuss how the two shows are connected.

Although both shows are created by Sheridan, they are not entirely related to each other. Hugh Dillon also co-created “Mayor of Kingstown”.

In fact, Dillon pitched his concept for a television series inspired by his upbringing in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, to his friend Sheridan. They decided to make “Mayor of Kingstown”, and the success resulted in the production of three seasons of the show.

Dillon told The Hollywood Reporter, “I grew up in a prison town that had nine prisons.” Sheridan delved into the concept and began developing the show.

When asked about the connection between “Mayor of Kingstown” and “Yellowstone”, Dillon commented, “They were always completely different things, and conceptually, (‘Mayor of Kingstown’) was conceived first.”

His comments suggest that “Yellowstone” and “Mayor of Kingstown” are not related at all. Each series stands independently in terms of plot.

“Yellowstone” features vast landscapes and vibrant colors, in contrast to the darker, grittier scenes featured in “Mayor of Kingstown.” This stark difference reinforces that the two series exist in completely separate universes.
