Paramount+ announced on Tuesday that Landman, a new drama series from Oscar nominee Taylor Sheridan, will premiere on Sunday, November 17, 2024.

Per Paramount, Landman is a modern-day tale of fortune-seeking in the world of oil rigs set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas. The series is an “upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy, and our geopolitics.” Landman is based on the podcast Boomtown, an 11-part series by Imperative Entertainment and Texas Monthly about big oil in the Permian Basin.

Landman stars Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton as Tommy Norris, a crisis executive at an oil company. Ali Larter, Jacob Lofland, Kayla Wallace, James Jordan, Mark Collie, Paulina Chávez, and Demi Moore also star. Jon Hamm will appear in a recurring guest role, while Andy Garcia and Michael Peña will serve as guest stars.

Landman is created and executive produced by Sheridan, who continues adding TV shows to his impressive résumé at Paramount Network and Paramount+. Sheridan’s shows include Yellowstone, 1883, 1923, Mayor of Kingstown, Tulsa King, Lioness, and Lawmen: Bass Reeves. Yellowstone airs on Paramount Network, while the rest stream directly on Paramount+.

Besides Sheridan, executive producers of Landman include David C. Glasser, ​David Hutkin, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, Christian Wallace, Geyer Kosinski, Michael Friedman, Stephen Kay, Dan Friedkin, Jason Hoch, Christian Wallace, J.K. Nickell, and Megan Creydt. Boomtown podcast host Christian Wallace is also listed as an executive producer on Landman. Peter Feldman serves as co-executive producer.

Landman‘s first two episodes stream to Paramount+ on November 17. Subsequent episodes will be available weekly on Sundays. Landman‘s first season consists of 10 episodes.

The Ark cast and crew discuss the challenges of returning to space for season 2
A group of astronauts stand in a line and stare.

When we last checked in on the crew aboard Ark One, things were far from OK. Ark One finally reached Proxima b, the planet that hopefully would serve as humanity's next home. Unfortunately for the human race, Proxima b explodes, and the blast causes significant damage to Ark One. The final moments of The Ark season 1 finale saw Lt. Sharon Garnet (Christie Burke), Lt. James Brice (Richard Fleeshman), Lt. Spencer Lane (Reece Ritchie), and Alicia Nevins (Stacey Read) scrambling to find survivors.

The Ark season 2 jumps right into the aftermath of the explosion. While Ark One experienced several casualties, there are some notable survivors, including Felix Strickland (Pavle Jerinić), Eva Markovic (Tiana Upcheva), and Angus Medford (Ryan Adams). With the fate of the human race at stake, Ark One must pivot to finding another new home.
