While we all anxiously await Yellowstone‘s return, the series has started airing a somewhat abridged version on CBS, removing plenty of violence, nudity, and language from filmmaker Taylor Sheridan‘s prestige drama. One show that, like Yellowstone, refused to pull punches was FX’s hit highway drama Sons of Anarchy, a series inspired by the very real Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. You might wonder at the connection between Sons of Anarchy and a show like Yellowstone. Other than thematic content, they don’t seem to have much in common. Well, other than Taylor Sheridan, that is.
Before Yellowstone, Taylor Sheridan had a role on Sons of Anarchy, but it didn’t end well. Years later, his neo-Western bites back.
