ATX Television Festival continues to announce major programming for season eight, which will take place June 6-9, 2019, in Austin, Texas.

Paramount Network’s epic drama series “Yellowstone” joins ATX as the festival’s Friday night marquee screening on June 7, featuring the world premiere of season two, followed by a panel conversation with cast members Luke Grimes, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, and Gil Birmingham. The series is co-created by critically-acclaimed, Oscar®-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (“Hell or High Water”) and John Linson (“Sons of Anarchy”), and follows John Dutton (Kevin Costner), who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park. “Yellowstone,” which is TV’s most-watched new cable drama series of 2018, returns to Paramount Network for season two on Wednesday, June 19 at 10 p.m., ET/PT. Additional panelists will be announced at a later date.

“Yellowstone” will be included in the festival’s limited single ticketed programming available only at the Stateside and Paramount Theatres.  Single tickets are available for purchase for $20 per ticket through the Paramount and Stateside website.  Within the week the following programming will be on sale with additional events to be announced soon.

WesBentley.net staff are hoping that we’ll be able to attend the event, and perhaps run into Wes somewhere in Austin. *Fingers Crossed*
