Although “Yellowstone” fans can breathe a sigh of relief that the upcoming season will most likely stop cross-promoting the spin-offs, many are still skeptical that Jimmy Hurdstrom is a strong enough character to carry “6666.” On the show’s subreddit, however, it seems that fans were split on the matter.
“Pure set up for the show 6666 — I just don’t see the selling point for 6666,” wrote u/Tongue37. “I mean, aside from Jimmy and his gf what is going to go on there? It seems like it will be Yellowstone light.”
“He literally stated in this episode that Texas is all about ranching and there’s no conflict,” said u/Chyrch. “That doesn’t exactly make the new series sound very interesting.”
Others rejoiced that his character would no longer appear on “Yellowstone,” though u/ClanOrdo16 admitted their unpopular opinion that Jimmy’s storyline was “probably the highlight and most coherent” in Season 4. Echoing their point, another Redditor said that they “f***ing loved” the ranchhand’s arc this season, calling him a “great connection” between the two series.
With the details still unknown about “6666,” fans will just have to wait and see what’s to come.
